Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar says that he wants to portray police officer K. Vijay Kumar, who is credited with killing sandalwood smuggler Veerappan.

On Wednesday, Akshay was present to show his support to security agencies by attending the launch of a book, Veerappan – Chasing the Brigand, in Mumbai.

Asked which role among the two he would like to play, he said: “Both Veerappan and Vijay Kumar’s characters are really interesting but I would love to play the role of Vijay Kumar because the whole planning has been done by him and how brilliantly he executed the entire operation.”

The book is a first hand account of Veerappan’s end, written by Vijay Kumar himself. The book release was attended by eminent politicians and bureaucrats among others.

Akshay also shared a picture on Twitter and wrote, “Honoured to be a part of the book launch of the man whom I consider a legend, @KVijayKumarIPS Veerappan #ChasingTheBrigand – a must read!”

      i am superstar again superhit from akki sir

  1. He already looks a officer his voice his personality suits him as a officer a great actor a great personality

  2. akshay kumar vs hritik roshan overall career comparison( source – boi.com)
    1. blockbusters
    hritik-5( knph, k3g, krishh, dhoom2, krishh3)
    akshay- 2 ( mohra, rowdy rathore)
    2. all time blockbusters
    hritik-0
    akshay-0
    3. all time grossers
    hritik-1( dhoom2)
    akhay-0
    4. highest grosser of the decade
    hritik-0
    akshay-0
    5. record breaking opening day
    hritik-4( mission kashmir, k3g, krishh, agneepath)
    akshay-2( ajnabee, singh is king)
    6. record breaking weekend
    hritik-4( mission kashmir, k3g, krishh, dhoom2)
    akshay-1( singh is king)
    7. 2 crore plus footfall films
    hritik-4( knph, k3g, dhoom2, krishh3)
    akshay-2( mohra, rowdy rathore)
    8. 3 crore plus footfall films
    hritik-2( knph, k3g)
    akshay-0

    so the above list proves hritik is way ahead of akshay in overall career despite of the fact that he has debuted almost 9 years after akshay kumar and akshay kumar has done much more films than him.

    in 8 of the major boxoffice achievements hritik and akshay are equal only in 2 things, highest grosser of the decade and all time blockbusters where both are yet to open their account but in the other 6 things hritik is way ahead.

  3. Kannada film VEERAPPAN was a Hit ..
    I will love AKKI do whatever he desires.
    .
    As of now waiting for TOILET-EPK TRAILER.

  4. Hrithik is way ahead of Akshay what a joke have forget about rustom vs mohendaro clash.Akshay has given 7 100cr film nd 4 in just 13months can Hrithik do this.Hrithik has no where near Akshay in recent times.Akshay sir has greater fan base than Hrithik.
