“I don’t feel shy calling my wife as a ‘yodha’ at all,” the actor said at a launch event for Tata Motors’ latest offering Xenon YODHA on Tuesday.
“Yodha does not — Not — necessarily mean one who is holding a gun. Yodha is a person who holds his own family. A soldier who fights a war, isn’t only a yodha. It is all about holding your family and close ones. Everybody is a ‘yodha’ in his life,” he added.
“It is a big responsibility when a person calls himself a fighter. He must be a person whom you can trust and rely on, no matter whatever happens. You have that feeling that he won’t break your trust. So, that is a big responsibility,” he said.
Akshay is looking forward to a happening new year with “Jolly LLB 2”, “Toilet – Ek Prem Katha”, “2.o” and “Pad Man”. He will also feature in a film co-produced by Salman Khan and Karan Johar.
Talking about the new project, the 49-year-old actor said: “Being an actor, signing a film for another big actor is something new for this industry because it only happens in Hollywood, where an actor signs another actor for his production. I hope this trend starts in Bollywood too.”
