I still haven't got my due as an actor from the industry, says Akshay Kumar!

After two decades in the Hindi Film industry, Akshay Kumar is fairly touted as one of the most bankable stars in the movie industry. Age is just a number for the actor who is seen in more than 3-4 movies every year, all making a positive influence on the viewers.
But as per a famous tabloid, when Akshay was questioned if he finally thought that he was getting his due as an actor, he answered, "I still haven't got my due as an actor from the industry, I just got the National Award."
On receiving the Padma Shri, Akshay told, "That is recognition from the government, not the industry."
Speaking about his long standing association with his producers, the actor disclosed, "I'm friends with every producer and director I work with. Our association is not limited to the films we're doing that point in time. There are directors with whom I have had three flops, yet I have trusted them with the fourth film. A lot of people didn't give up on me, so I don't give up on the director if a film doesn't work."
On detaching himself from the box-office of his movies yet taking off to some place before his movie releases, Akshay specified, "Well, anyone would be nervous, but I'm lucky that I get to experience it three-four times a year. I feel less nervous than those who have only one film a year because then, the pressure is more. At the most, I'll be sad till the weekend. Also, it's not that I want to vanish when my film releases, as some sections of the media report. For example, I've taken a 15-day break from the schedule of Gold in London, to promote Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Once this film releases, I'll return and resume shooting as people are waiting for me there."
In the meantime, Akshay's next Toilet: Ek Prem Katha which is helmed by Shree Narayan Singh and also stars Bhumi Pednekar is scheduled to release on August 11, 2017.
