Wasn’t difficult to portray a Parsi: Akshay Kumar
New Delhi: Actor Akshay Kumar, who essays a Parsi character in his forthcoming film Rustom, says it wasn’t tough. The actor shared that he has a lot of Parsi friends, and so portraying a person from a different religion, wasn’t tough.
“I have lots of friends who are Parsis. One of my best friends in school was a Parsi. My manager is also a Parsi. So I have a lot of Parsi friends and I know people from the community. Therefore, it wasn’t a difficult role to portray,” Akshay told the media here while promoting Rustom. In ‘Rustom’, Akshay essays a Navy officer. He has previously donned the uniform as an Army officer in ‘Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty’, anti-terrorism secret agent in ‘Baby’, an Indian Air Force officer in ‘Andaaz’ and as a police officer in films such as ‘Aan: Men at Work’, ‘Khakee’, ‘Mohra’, ‘Main Khiladi Tu Anari’ and ‘Khiladi 786’, among others. Akshay says that in real life, he had tried his luck to get into the Merchant Navy, but said things did not work out.
