Actor inspires 'Special 26' co-star Kajal Aggarwal to do more action films

After working with Akshay Kumar in Special 26, Kajal Aggarwal has developed a new found interest in doing action movies. She is in awe with the way the Khiladi performs his own action sequences and feels inspired to take up some challenges herself.

Says Kajal, “I was always an adrenaline junkie. I love adventure sports and bungee jumping is next on my to-do list. Listening to Akshay talk about his stunts in the various movies he has done with so much excitement just made me feel like I want to give it a shot. He performs all his stunts with so much ease and comfort; it is remarkable.”

The actress adds, “An action movie is something I have been looking at for quite some time. I’m browsing through scripts to find something exceptionally great. When I find the right script, I’ll go all in on it.”

Kajal, who was earlier seen in the Ajay Devgn-starrer Singham besides her South projects, also feels that it’s time actresses in India do more action flicks.

“Doing an action movie is presently on top of my mind and Akshay has inspired me to pursue my dream of doing it. The character of Lara Croft is a huge inspiration. I think it’s time that Bollywood movies too should explore women in action-oriented roles.”
