Akshay Kumar Feels Proud About Playing A Gay Character In DISHOOM

Akshay Kumar amazed audiences by playing a gay character in the recent release ‘Dishoom’. Even though he played a cameo, his role was applauded.
When asked about the same, Akshay revealed that he was proud to play a gay character in his career and he also thanks for the appreciation he has received from his fans and the audiences.
At a recent media interaction when he was asked if it was a big deal for a superstar like him to play a gay character, Akshay said, "No. At the point, I didn’t! Now that my Bumfie is well and truly out there.
I’ve been hearing that I really might be a first among my generation to do such a role, and you know what, being proud of one’s decisions is what makes your choices infectious… Gay, straight, fat or thin, we are what we are, and I was proud to play a gay character finally in my career. But the incredible response I’ve received from so many people is what makes this so amazing. All I can say is thanks for the unconditional love.” 
Talking about his next, Akshay is promoting his much-hyped ‘Rustom’ slated to release on 12th August.
