In Boss, there is no cable action because youngsters are getting bored of it. They feel that the actors are not doing much — the cables are in all the jumps etc. In this film I have avoided cables.

The going has been good for Akshay Kumar despite a mixed verdict on his films — a successful Special 26 and then Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobaara which fell short of expectations. On the other hand, 72 Miles Ek Pravas, a Marathi film under his banner Grazing Goat picked up critical acclaim, but in characteristic khiladi style, he's back on his feet doing what he's best at — putting out a slew of movies in theatres. Kumar will soon be seen collaborating with producer -director Karan Johar for film under Dharma banner besides Gabbar with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and It's Entertainment, a venture he has signed with Ramesh Taurani. A film with Neeraj Pandey could also be on cards though the actor has not made a final decision on it.
Busy shooting for Tamil director A.R Murugadoss's Holiday, a Hindi remake of Thupaaki, under his home banner named Cape of Good Films. Actor Akshay Kumar, during breaks in the shooting, answers a few questions about his upcoming film Boss and asks a few of his own:
From the trailer that one has seen, Boss looks and feels rather different from your earlier films this year, so what can one expect?
Why don't I ask you — you have seen the promo, what do you think of it?
Let me hazard a guess, an action-drama?
