Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar on Friday said he stays far away from any kind of professional competition and doesn't want to get confined to a certain image in acting. "I am sometimes called number one, number two, and at times, number three actor. But I am not in the race. I am not a horse that ends up first, second or third in a race," the 54-year-old actor told reporters here.
Kumar added that as an actor, he tries not to get confined to play a role and get captured in an image. "I want to play different roles," he said.

The actor said that there was no rivalry between the two films and he hopes that both the movies will do well at the ticket window.
During the event, Kumar was asked about the hashtag on Twitter, calling for the boycott of his film. To this, the actor said he does not know anything about it.
