Akshay is enjoying his success in Bollywood yet he is aware that he has competition. And it's not the well established Khans that are giving him a run he believes. In fact it's the 'new age' heroes, and the young kids on the block that are making Akki work harder than ever before.
''You can see there is a lot of competition around for me nowadays,'' he admits, ''I love working with younger heroes but am also scared of them. They are all so fit. If I have to work with them then I have to match up to them. And that means I ought to be fit and fine, for there's no time to sit and rest.''
Looks like the guy's all charged up, eh? It's not long before he'll be co-starring with son Aarav. Is that the plan, AK?
