'I love to play villainous roles'

Superstar Akshay Kumar says apart from catching up with different styles of comedy, he loves to play negative roles more often. The Entertainment star said it gives him immense joy.

“I think the villain always enjoys so much in major part of the film’s duration. He fixes up the heroine, runs around her. The hero is always busy protecting and working for his sister and mother.”

Only in the last five minu-tes of the film he gets beaten. I want to play villain’s role more often,” he told reporters here while promoting Entertainment.

The film will hit theatres on August 8. Asked what other genres he wants to catch up with after being successful in funny and action roles, Akshay said there is so much to learn about comedy itself.

“There are many untouched genres. Even in comedy there are so many things which you actually want to catch up with. The way Praka-sh Raj approaches comedy, I want to do that,” he said.

However Akshay said he started to enjoy his work after spending 27 years in the industry. “Today when I get up in the morning, and if I have to go for a shoot, I am very eager to do that. I am so happy with myself that I have not lost this greed,” he added.

Akshay said he enjoys portraying different characters as no other profession in the world provides the scope to play various roles in one’s lifetime.

“I enjoy doing different characters. Where in the world will you get a profession like this where you can play so many characters - you can romance so many beautiful girls, you can play so many sports... but still get paid,” he said.

Akshay, who will be seen with a dog in Entertainment, said it is tough to shoot with the canine as it does unexpected things during shoots.

“It is not easy to shoot with a dog and a child (Hey Baby). You have to have a lot of patience because dogs while shooting go for a stroll. Same with the baby also. While giving a shot the baby would fall asleep,” he said.

Akshay is teaming up with Humshakals actress Tamannaah Bhatia in the film. On her expectations from Entertainment after not-so-good films Himmatwala and Humshakals, Tamannaah said, “In everyone’s life there are times when some films don’t do well and some do well, but I am very hopeful about Entertainment because it has shaped up very well,” she said.

“The duo director - Sajid-Farhad - have done a good job, and also there is Akshay and Entertainment (dog). I think the film is going to be liked by people,” she added.
