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.
