Want to explore action genre afresh: Anil

Mumbai: Actor Anil Kapoor feels that the action genre was not new to him and in fact what his fellow stars are doing today he had done it much earlier.

Excited about the Friday release of action drama Tezz, the 52-year-old actor says that he wanted to explore the genre anew before he grows older.

“I think it is very natural phenomenon as what you could do ten years back that you can’t do today, you have to change with time and temperament and age and you try to do your best. You try to do what suits you and what you are capable of and sometimes you try to stretch yourself…saying you can work hard more. There is a lot of action and running scenes that I have tried to do my best in Tezz,” the actor said.

Kapoor will be seen in Tezz, Shootout at Wadala and Race 2, besides the American TV series 24, which will be made here for the Indian audience.

“I am preparing myself for this genre. I have always done films of this genre like Tezaab, Rakhwala, Kishen Kanhaiya, Laadla, Meri Jung. These films had dramatic action sequences, which people (actors) are doing again with Singham, Wanted etc. I have done this kind of films and they have been successful. For other actors all this kind of action is new thing but not for me. What I am trying is to do it differently,” he said.

Kapoor feels that Hollywood superstar Jackie Chan has been the source of inspiration for this kind of dramatic action in India which was Indianised by the directors from south.

Acknowledging that the actions films are doing well at box office, the actor said,” Today it is weekend business. A film earning Rs 30 crore on the weekend is termed as hit”.

Kapoor said he had done films like ‘Parinda’, ‘1942 A Love Story’ that even his grandchildren will be proud of. His next release is Priyadarshan’s action-thriller Tezz alongside Ajay Devgn, Zayed Khan, Kangana Ranuat and Sameera Reddy. (PTI)
