For Akshay Kumar, Age Is Just A Number
On being asked if turning older by a year makes him fear that things would soon change for him in terms of work, offers or anything else, the actor said that he is not affected by his age, and that it concerns the others.
Akshay was quoted as saying, "Every actor has a shelf life, either via popularity, opportunities, hard work, and sometimes, age, if you're lucky enough to reach that far. Either way, there's a time in every man/woman's life where they have to hang their working hat up."
He further added, "Do I need to worry about that now? I hope not, but, yes, I'm aware that I've had an incredible 30 years in this industry already, but another 30 would be a dream, if possible. So, it's back on the bicycle for me, gotta keep my fresh face glow on for it's these pretty newbies that are the ones giving us old dogs a run for our money."

My Bell Bottom team is super cool, so it'll be lots of games, home made pizzas by my master chef of a son, and I'm hoping he makes me his famous cheesecake or Cinnamon buns, they're so good they made even Mr Mahesh Bhupati drool with pleasure. Either way, I'm surrounded by my family and that's all that matters."
