Akshay Khanna is a man of few words and believes his hard work would rather do the talking. The actor says what makes you stand out is the strong content of your film.

"No matter how good an actor you are, if you don't have a strong content, you can't do anything. And even if you are a very bad actor and if you have solid content, you will manage to do something. That's the point," said Akshaye, who has been in the industry for the past 15 years.

The actor, who started off as a main stream actor with "Himalay Putra" in 1997, has proved his versatility with films like "Taal", "Dil Chahta Hai" and "Gandhi My Father". Many of his films didn't do well at the box ofifce, but the actor is unperturbed and believes in picking up only those films with strong content.

You don't sign too many films so, what keeps you busy?

"Normal things. I sleep a lot. I am a great sleeper. I can sleep for 13 to 14 hours and that keeps me busy. I also love to do gardening," he said.

"I don't like to go to parties...I am not that kind of a person. I don't enjoy partying. I would rather be at home, watch TV, read a book," Akshaye told IANS.

The 36-year-old is ready for his first release of the year, "Gali Gali Chor Hai", which is about corruption and the plot revolves around a common man.

"The story is about a common man who gets stuck in the system. It's a simple story of a common man who works in a bank and gets stuck in the system and what happens to him is the story all about. It sounds depressing, but it's a hilarious film," he said.

"In the film, I am the person who is trying to get out but can't. My character keeps paying, paying, and paying and he reaches a point where he has to sell his house. Wife leaves him. He is destroyed totally."

The film is said to be inspired by 1994 "Laadla", which had Sridevi, Anil Kapoor and Raveena Tandon in the lead role. Akshaye has teamed up with Mugdha Godse and Shriya Saran in "Gali Gali Chor Hai", which is coming out Feb 3.

What next?

"Just read the script. You should immediately feel I want to do this. Feeling should come," he said.

    He gets movies with great content..but he's not a strong actor IMO. Take in example; Vidya does movies that are so hatke in genres..but her versatility makes the oddest of film's a huge success. Well..hope this film works for Akshaye =)
