He has quite recently completed a series of squash and is somewhat gleaming with great wellbeing. Akshaye Khanna has called me to an upmarket SoBo club for the meeting. He takes me towards the poolside, arranges some tea and leaves to change. Returning, he pours me some tea and readies his very own cup. I notice it appears as though we're having this discussion in his parlor, so cool and gathered he appears in the environment. He snickers and says he considers the games club his subsequent home. The downpour outside and the hot tea make an extraordinary feeling for a visit. Obviously, ten minutes with him and you understand he isn't a talker. You need to continually goad him to inspire a reaction. 

We visit for some time or rather I talk while he tunes in. The discussion veers towards his vacation from the business. Getting intelligent, he clarifies his purposes behind remaining endlessly, "There were some close to home issues. Be that as it may, frankly, I was not content with the work I was getting. Along these lines, I thought preferably not work over accomplish something that I didn't know of." After a respite, he includes, "I understood how troublesome it was not having the option to convey what needs be innovatively. To have the option to endure that time span and not lose your psyche or start trading off was troublesome." 


The downpour is as yet lashing outside. In the wake of taking a gander at it for quite a while and ruminating over its recurring pattern, he brings up that his rest was surely a learning experience. "I discovered that I had the inborn solidarity to persevere through that period. Four years is really long thinking about how quick time is moving. Open memory is short," he muses. 

Dishoom, featuring John Abraham and Varun Dhawan, was his rebound film where he played a negative character. He hinders and says he doesn't see it as a rebound venture. He uncovers he took it up as he needed to start continuously and gain his stripes back. "I played a lowlife in Humraaz, Race… Bad, great, dark, dark, white… doesn't make a difference to me. Individuals have delighted in me in such jobs. Not all entertainers are that fortunate," he states. 


His most recent discharge is Ajay Bahl's Section 375 – a court dramatization about how the Indian law characterizes assault and the intricacies related with it. Akshaye's go about as a legal counselor, guarding a producer blamed for explicitly attack, has won appreciation. He was likewise adored in his job of Sanjaya Baru, the media guide to the Prime Minister of India from 2004 to 2008, in The Accidental Prime Minister. His face lights up when he hears the compliment. The film's subject was somewhat questionable and naysayers said it was made to censure the memory of previous Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Did he consent to its legislative issues? He takes as much time as is needed responding to the inquiry, busying himself with making some green tea. "As an entertainer, you don't really need to concur with the substance or the character you're playing. My character depended on a book. Along these lines, my own governmental issues has got nothing to do with it. We were straightforward to the book," says he, blending both authenticity and political rightness in his deliberate answer. The film made them offer screen space with Anupam Kher, who tried Dr Singh's job. He makes reference to Anupam didn't get the approval he merited the same number of accepted he was playing an exaggeration. "Many individuals have a great deal of sentiments about Anupam. Actually, I coexist well with him since he's somebody who makes me snicker. Furthermore, any individual who makes me chuckle turns into my dear companion," he grins. 


Akshaye began path in 1997 with Himalay Putra. Significantly following 20 years underneath his belt, despite everything he believes he has a lot to learn. Ask him whether he has figured out how to pinpoint what functions and what doesn't work for him and he just grins. Giving the case of Kabir Singh, he says it was a film, which wrecked all generalizations about an ordinary Hindi film saint. He brings up the main man was completely imperfect. He utilized medications, liquor, abused ladies and was injurious in his own as well as even his expert relationship. Says he, "He's pointless. In any case, individuals cherished it. The distinguishing proof isn't just with the character; it's with the story as well, something that is never occurred. Perhaps in some workmanship movies such characters were appeared however not at such a huge business level. Along these lines, the meaning of a hit film is liquid." 

The discussion streams to the progressions he's apparent in the business as the years progressed. He reacts by saying that the '60s, '70s, '80s would be wise to contents and chiefs. "Despite the fact that we've advanced on numerous fronts as an industry, be it on the business side, the specialized side, the presentation side, even innovatively. Yet, the crowds will likewise concur we have far to go," he keeps up. 


The group of spectators today is recognizing and has developed because of access to content from over the world. OTT stages are the following huge thing and perhaps Akshaye should give such roads a shot. While he doesn't focus on anything, he concurs that advanced is in fact what's to come. He states, "Advanced is the future, particularly in India where we have overrated film tickets so a lot of that it's excessively expensive to many. It's pitiful. Film ought to be made moderate to an individual with an essential pay; even he ought to have the option to appreciate stimulation."
