Akshay Kumar took a well-thought break from kicking and boxing in films, but now is back to the action genre with "Rowdy Rathore". The 'Khiladi' of Bollywood says he is absolutely geared for the new innings.

"It's been some two to three years that I have stayed away from action movies. It's because when my son (Aarav) was two years old, I was scared that what if something happened to me...that's why I was off action," Akshay said here Monday night.

The 44-year-old established himself as the 'khiladi' of Bollywood thanks to a slew of daredevil stunts in action films like "Khiladi", "Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi", "Waqt Hamara Hai" and "Mohra".

Starting 2000, he tried his comic timing in the hit movie "Hera Pheri", and others like "Garam Masala", "Phir Hera Pheri", "Bhagam Bhag", "Welcome", "Singh Is Kinng", "Housefull" and "Tees Maar Khan".

But with "Rowdy Rathore", directed by Prabhu Deva, he promises to be back in the 'khiladi' avatar.

"Every father would understand the emotion behind the decision of withdrawing from action because nothing else matters for parents than the children's happiness and well-being.

"But now my son is nine years old. God forbid if something happens to me, he can do something... So I am back to action, and absolutely ready for another innings," said Akshay, who adorns the cover of the latest issue of Stardust magazine.

For now the actor is busy promoting Sajid Khan's "Housefull 2", releasing April 5.

I understand what he means..Akshay does all his dare devil stunts without a stuntsman as bodydouble so he wanted a safety net for his good health until his son was old enuf to understand life. be serious guys. akshay has proved himself as gud actor long time back..but his choice of films really set him back. But I knw for sure he'll be bak in lights with Rowdy Rathore :) i often read his fb posts..he's a very sweet person :)
