Akshay happy that John is doing ‘Welcome’ sequel
Just a couple of days ago we reported that Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif would not feature in the sequel to their successful film, Welcome, and that John Abraham would feature in the film instead of Kumar. What’s surprising is that Akshay bears no grudges against John for stepping into his shoes.
"Akshay is like my elder brother. Whatever I do, I always have a lot of discussions, especially with him. Akshay is happiest for me when I told him that I am doing Welcome Back. He said it's a very good film and you should do it," the 40-year-old said to IANS.
"It's an outstanding script, kids will love it and I am looking forward to doing it," he added.
John has reportedly charged Rs.15 crore (£1.8m approx) for Welcome Back, but did not confirm the news.
"As far as money is concerned, I don't talk about money at all as I think it's not as important. I charge because I think I deserve it. But I give it to charity because I think that's more important," said the actor
The actor will next be seen as gangster Manya Surve in Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout At Wadala which stars Anil Kapoor, Kangna Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor, Manoj Bajpai and Mahesh Manjrekar. It hits theatres worldwide on 3 May 2013.
