Amazed by Akshay

“I saw Desi Boyz yesterday and cannot help thinking that Akshay Kumar is one of the most underrated actors in Bollywood,” Ghosh posted on Twitter. “I dn’t think mch abt the film. But his performance in Desi Boyz is subtle, mature and worthy of acclaim — he deserves a wider range of roles (sic),” he wrote.

Ghosh, who has directed films like Chokher Bali and ‘Raincoat’, feels that the 44-year-old might be known for flexible action and perfect comical timings. But there is more to him which is royally ignored. “We have @akshaykumar slotted as an action hero or in a few comic roles but the fact that he is a fine actor goes unnoticed,” he posted. Akshay’s Desi Boyz was released on November 25 and is doing well at the box office.
