Prachi Bhardwaj,New Delhi: Words fall short when it comes to describe Bollywood's 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar. The actor has seen a sea change in the genre of the film and the box office fortunes. From 'Dil Ki Baazi' till his latest movie 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha', Akshay has just got better over time. After finding a comfort spot in his career, Akshay is belting out hits after hits and that made Superstar Salman's father to call him better actor than anyone in Bollywood.
During an interview, Salim said,“I have to say for Akshay Kumar that the way he has improved as an actor is something that no one else has been able to. The journey that he has covered is almost impossible to imagine. Today he is an actor who can tackle every kind of subject. Other actors like Ajay Devgn, Aamir Khan and Salman have also improved over the course of their careers, but none like Akshay.”
Further speaking on his son Salman's and SRK films that are somehow not getting good response at the box office, Salim said,"The reason for this is very simply that we have been making bad films. And the cause is that we just don’t have writers of any calibre and that is because people have forgotten how to read. In my time everyone read books, recommended them to one another. We visited bookshops, read bestsellers as well as books related to the craft. Most people don’t even read the newspapers they subscribe to. Often when I am passing Salman’s door [Salman lives on the ground floor and his family occupies the first] I knock on the door and ask his staff to take in the papers.”
