Touted as a bankable actor in Bollywood, Akshay Kumar has tried his hands on all kinds of roles, and for his action-hero image, he is labelled as the 'Khiladi' of B-town. But, recently the actor revealed that he wants to play negative roles more often.

The actor made it to the headlines for plying the role of an antagonist in ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobara’. In an interview conducted by a media daily, Akshay is quoted to have said, “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.”

During the promotion of his up-coming comedy flick ‘Entertainment’, he also said, “Only in the last five minutes of the film, he gets beaten. I want to play villain role more often.”

Endearing his fans with his epic comedy timing, Akshay said there is still so much to learn about comedy. Even in comedy there are so many things you actually want to catch up with. I want to approach Comedy like Prakash Raj does.”

About the hectic shooting schedules, the 46-year-old actor said, “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 this greed has not gone from me,” further adding, “I enjoy portraying different characters as no other profession in the world provides the scope to play various roles in one lifetime. You can romance so many beautiful girls, you can play so many sports… but still be paid.”
