Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, who had hosted reality TV show ‘Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi’, today said his focus these days is only films.  “No. I am now concentrating only on films,” Kumar told reporters when asked about plans to return to the small screen. The superstar, whose ‘Rustom’ releases on August 12, said he does only 3-4 films a year but can easily do six.

“For one film, you need 40-45 days and even if I do four films in a year it will take only about 230 days. For the remaining days, I spend with family, etc. I can also do six films as there is a lot of time for it,” he said.  Now this trend of doing less films has decreased, he said hoping that others will soon start doing three films a year.

Asked about competition, the ‘Khiladi’ series actor said there is no competition as the industry makes about 180 films annually which ensures space for everyone.  On what is new in ‘Rustom’ as there are several films made in the past taking cue from real life incident of naval officer K M Nanavati, Kumar said this film’s screenplay has taken 4-5 incidents to make one story.
