Big Directors Don't Work With Me: Akshay
Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar did not have a godfather or come from a 'filmi' family, when he entered Bollywood. The actor observed that he normally worked with small directors as the big ones did not take him in their films. "Yes, they have produced films in which I've acted, but they have not directed me," said the actor, referring to film-makers Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra.
The comment came in the wake of Karan Johar making a statement that Akshay Kumar invariably worked with new directors."When people don't take you, you have to start your own journey. If you don't get a job in a big publication, you work with a small one. From there you jump. I cannot just sit at home and wonder why they didn't take me, despite me being so capable," he added.
