Bollywood Khiladi Akshay Kumar is busy in the promotions of his forthcoming film, Good Newwz. While speaking at the portions, Akshay made comments on ‘big directors’ in the wake of Karan Johar, who is the producer this film, that Akshay has, more often than not, worked with new directors.
Akshay said, “I work with new directors because big directors don’t take me (in their films). That is the truth. When big people don’t take you (in their films), you have to start your own journey. If you don’t get a job in a big publication, you will go through a smaller one. From there you jump. You cannot just sit at home and wonder why people don’t take me (in their films) despite me being so capable.”
The actor maintained that even though big filmmakers produce his films, they don’t direct him. “I still don’t have big directors (directing me). They are producing films with me, but they are not directing. Mr Karan Johar is there, you should ask him. You should ask Adi Chopra,” he said.
