Watching Akshay Kumar in a promo of "Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!" reminded Hollywood superstar Al Pacino of his own blockbuster "The Godfather".

Akshay is glad that a person of his stature noticed his film.

"He appreciated the whole film and said that the film reminded him of his own film 'Godfather'. It feels good that such a big star talks about our film and it's a big thing for our industry," the 44-year-old said here at the launch of the third promo of the film.

Al Pacino played Michael Corleone, son of Vito Andolini, played by Marlon Brando, in the 1972.

Meanwhile, Akshay feels that comparing him with Ajay Devgn, who played the lead in "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai", is unjust.

"We make a film for the sake of filmmaking and not to pull down someone else. I don't work thinking that I have to do better work than Ajay Devgn, I think only about my work," Akshay said.

"You should do your own work and that's important. I have never thought this way and I don't believe in competition. We are not horses that you bet on us. Just do your work," he added.

Directed by Milan Luthria, "Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!" also stars Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha. It hits theatres Aug 15.
