I don’t believe in idol worship: Akshay Kumar

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Akshay Kumar who is all set for his upcoming release Jolly LLB 2 says that he has never intended to preach anything to the audience or to change anybody’s mindset with his work.

“I don’t do films to bring changes in people’s minds. I do films which I believe in. So I present the films which I believe in. If anybody likes the film or not, that depends on people,” Akshay told IANS during Jolly LLB 2 promotions.

“I did a film called OMG – Oh My God! because I don’t believe in idol worship. I believe god is within us. I feel why are we wasting milk by pouring it over god’s idols… Rather than that, we should give it to some poor person. A lot of people tell me that they liked that film and now don’t follow the same.” But Akshay said it has never been a deliberate attempt by him to make ‘films to teach’. “I do films which I like to think about personally,” he added.

He also talked about his court room drama Jolly LLB 2. “The target audience for this film is mainly youth. Also, this film is for both — the masses and the classes,” Akshay said.

He added: “There is a very serious topic that Jolly LLB 2 talks about, which is that everything is not fair in love and war. Otherwise, we have always heard that everything is fair in love and war. So, I have proved that line as wrong in this film. Personally too, I don’t believe in it. So, this film should be watched by youngsters.”

For his role of lawyer Jagadishwar Mishra aka Jolly, Akshay didn’t do any preparation. “I liked the concept and script of the film. I liked the dialogues. I had never played the role of a lawyer. So, that is what got me into this film,” said Akshay, adding that he had immensely enjoyed watching Arshad Warsi-starrer Jolly LLB.

“I have seen the first film. I saw it at its premiere. I loved that film and it deserved everything from a National Award to all others,” he added.

  7. Akshay – I don’t want to change audience with my films
    Akshay – I want youth to watch it….

    Lol… at one hand, he doesn’t’t wanna change audience and at other hand he wants youth to watch it! Why?!… if he doesn’t wants to change, why should youth watch ?! or why is he requesting youth to watch if he doesn’t wants to change ?….

    Hypocrite actor….

    • First time in my life i don’t support Akshay and what he said…its absolutely pathetic to always go against one religion… If you really have issue with the religion who worship idol than u should also comeout and say butchering animals on religion name is also wrong…but no i can’t…

      First time in last 10 years i will skip Akshay’s movie…im really hurt with ur comment Mr AK
