Audiences loved Akshay Kumar's cameo in the movie Dishoom. The actor, who won everyone's hearts, said that he was proud to play a gay character finally in his career.
In an interview to DNA, Akshay Kumar said, ''I've been hearing that I really might be a first among my generation to do such a role, and you know what, being proud of one's decisions is what makes your choices infectious... Gay, straight, fat or thin, we are what we are, and I was proud to play a gay character finally in my career.''
Akshay Kumar further added, ''But the incredible response I've received from so many people is what makes this so amazing. All I can say is - thanks for the unconditional love.''
''Honestly, I wasn't afraid even for a second. I was, however, hoping the world would embrace my character. As for my image, I'm fully aware I've been a gay icon in India for many years now. If I can be loved by the gay fraternity why shouldn't I portray one in good faith for all their love and support over the years? I can only hope the gay community is as happy as I am to have done this.'' Akshay said.
