Adding more, Akshay Kumar, who is the only actor from the Hindi film industry to have made it to the recently released list of the country’s top 10 actors, said, “People keep on telling me that I am on number one, two or three position, but I don’t believe in competition. I am not a horse who runs in a race and comes first, second or third. This industry has a lot to offer; everyone has a lot of work. We are hardly some eight to 12 actors and we all have work; 180 films are made each year. I don’t think there is any competition.”

“I hope and I pray from my heart that both the films run in the theatres on Friday, successfully,” Akshay Kumar further said. Raksha Bandha, helmed by Aanand L Rai, will also feature actor Bhumi Pednekar, shown as Akshay Kumar’s love interest.
