"My films are commercial. I don't give any speech (on social issues) in my films. As an actor, I have always chosen different subjects like 'OMG: Oh My God!' was on religion, Baby was on terrorism, and Gabbar Is Back, which is on corruption. I feel it's up to the audience how to take it," Akshay said.
Akshay has been cast as a vigilante, a righteous man and an enemy of the corrupt in the film. Akshay also praises Kareena Kapoor.
He said, "Bebo has been an integral part of my career, we've done many movies together & one can only hope we have many more to come, she is everything one could ever ask in a Hindi actress. Kareena will always know how deeply I appreciate her effort & expertise, I'm sure viewers are going to love her in Teri Meri Kahaani, Bebo has brought a kindness to our film like no other."
Gabbar Is Back is directed by popular southern actor Krish and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom18 Motion Pictures. Featuring Shruti Haasan, the film is slated to release on May 1, 2015.
