I followed the director's vision in 'Tasveer': Akshay

Akshay Kumar Akshay Kumar says he took time to adjust to the working style of Nagesh Kukunoor in 8x10 Tasveer , but after a few days of awkwardness decided to follow the director's vision.

An actor used to playing over-the-top, larger-than-life roles suddenly found himself being told by his director to underplay the character. Akshay had to change his style of acting while shooting 'Tasveer' with Nagesh.

"I got irritated for the first four days of our schedule but on the fifth day we understood each other and I decided to go by the director's vision," Akshay told reporters at a press meet in Mumbai.




When asked about his reasons for doing the film, Akshay responded: "I did Nagesh's film because I liked the story and went by the director's instinct. I am confident it will do well."

But what about those rumours of Akshay walking off the film's sets because of his differences with Nagesh?

"I would never do that with any director. I am satisfied with the end result and happy that I followed his vision," Akshay clarified.

Director Nagesh Kukunoor, who's known for making small-budget films, said he always wanted a big star for 'Tasveer'.

"I wanted an A-list star as the protagonist. So, it was quite evident that the aura of the star will override the film," said the director famous for making gripping films like Iqbal and Dor .

Kukunoor added that the film is an action thriller.

"I am excited and nervous. This is an action thriller in the purest sense of the word," he said.

The movie has Akshay playing a forest officer who has an ability to peek through time and into people's lives by just looking at photographs. The film has Ayesha Takia in female lead.

'Tasveer' is set to release on April 3.
