Mumbai | Actor Akshay Kumar says he is keen to star in a woman-centric film with his Airlift co-star Nimrat Kaur. Female-centric films in Bollywood usually have top actress while the male lead is played by newcomers or relatively lesser known faces. I just remembered that there is one script, I wanted to make it, it’s a woman related thing. I was just looking at her (Nimrat) and I thought ‘I have to ask her about this’, Akshay said in an interview. The Baby actor feels it all boils down to the content and is not about male or female-centric roles. I did a film called ‘Aitraaz’, it was a film which belonged to Kareena and Priyanka. A film has to be a hit, has to be appreciated, it doesn’t matter how much is my role.
Nimrat feels there is no pre-convinced notion among male actors to not be a part of women-oriented films. When it’s women-centric, if you need a superstar to star for commercial reasons, they will join in. In the same way, if in a male-centric film you need the presence of a female superstar that also happens. I don’t think people have a pre-conceived notion that if it’s a women-centric film, then we will not do it, she said.
