"More than me, people want me to do action films only. Everybody tells me to do action films. But I would love to do horror films," he told IANS.
A well-established choreographer and actor in the southern film industry and a successful director in Bollywood, the 39-year-old likes both the places and says that it's the team that is more important than anyting else.
"South or here, anywhere it is ok until the team is good. The team must be good. We can even do a Spanish film as long as the team is good," he said.
It is an out-and-out action movie and Prabhu Deva felt that Akshay suited the role perfectly.
"I selected Akshay because the character is tailormade for him, you will see. It happens to be an action film and he is very good at it. It's great to work with him and he is a director's delight," said the director.
"Rowdy Rathore" is releasing June 1.
Talking about Sonakshi, he said: "Sonakshi is doing her second film, but it doesn't seem that this is her second film, it seems that this is her 25th film - she is so professional and so good. Both Akshay and Sonakshi dance well. This is a bonus. Not only fight, dance is also there in the film," he said.
