Akshay Kumar: Religion has no bearing on a person’s directorial skills

Akshay Kumar: Religion has no bearing on a person's directorial skills Akshay Kumar: Religion has no bearing on a person's directorial skillsPrabhudheva, who comes from south India, has directed “Singh Is Bling” featuring a Sikh character. Actor Akshay Kumar, who plays a ‘sardaar’ in the movie, says religion has no bearing on a person’s directorial skills.

This is the second movie after “Rowdy Rathore” in which Prabhudeva is directing Akshay.

Asked how it was for a south Indian to direct a movie on Sikhs, Akshay said: “Religion is not necessary for directing the movie. ‘Singh Is Kinng’, which was also on a ‘sardaar’, was directed by Anees Bazmee, a Muslim. ‘Singh is Bling’ is being directed by a south Indian, Prabhudheva.”

“It is not at all necessary that a movie on a ‘sardaar’ needs to be directed by a Punjabi. In India, all castes are one and we understand each other very well. Prabhudeva has done a very good job,” Akshay added.

In “Singh Is Kinng”, Akshay had come under attack for sporting a trimmed beard, but this time, he has taken required steps to be on a safer side.

“I’ve taken care of all things that I had not done during ‘Singh is Kinng’. I don’t want to show anything that the Sikh community or any other Indian community is hurt, like they were during ‘Singh is Kinng’. I had said ‘sorry’ then as well. This time I had one person from the committee to keep a check on the movie,” explained Akshay.

Akshay has already cleared the air that his new movie, releasing on October 2, is not a sequel to “Singh is Kinng.
