Of late Akshay has appeared in 'serious' films such as 'Airlift', 'Baby' and 'Holiday'.

"I feel relieved when I do light comedy films. For quite sometime I was in tense mood as I was doing films like 'Airlift'. It's lot of fun when I do a film like 'Housefull'.

We had a great time shooting for 'Housefull 3'," Akshay said. The 48-year-old star has done as many as four films in a year.

"It's not rocket can do that many films. A film usually takes 60 days or so to finish. For 'Housefull 3' I took 38 days as everybody came on time so it all happened fast. I heard 'Mission Impossible' was shot in 52 days."

But a good trailer can take 40 days to make, he added. "While making the trailer one has to make sure it has everything. It's a difficult task."

"Housefull 3" starring Akshay, Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon releases on June 3.
