Akshaye Khanna is all set to woo his fans with his powerful role in Dishoom. In a recent interview the actor revealed that he is commitment phobic and the thought of giving up his space for anyone frightens him.
The Dishoom actor told TOI, ''I'm even more commitment phobic now. I wasn't like that in the past but over time, I have become more wary of relationships. It has a lot to do with the fact that I enjoy being alone. I am comfortable in my skin. As bizarre as it sounds, it is important for me to be left in my space. I prefer it that way. My 'alone time' is sacrosanct. The thought of giving up my space for anyone is frightening.''
Akshaye Khanna also talked about his five year break in the same interview, ''My perspective hasn't changed much. I have been working since I was 19. When someone like me takes a sabbatical, it leads to a few happy realisations. It was only when I was away that I realised how films are such a big part of my life. Here's my analogy - when you are running a business, it has to keep making money to thrive.''
''Similarly, acting is a physical and mental necessity. It is
essential for artistes to have that release of creativity, almost
as necessary as eating food or drinking water. As an actor, it is
paramount for us to be on our toes. Without delving much into
reasons, I am glad that I took time off. I had rejected offers, but
I took an unusual amount of time to find the next few projects to
start off with,'' he said.
