Here's why Akshay Kumar doesn't choose festivals for his releases.

We all know that the biggest Superstars of Bollywood, be it Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan or Aamir Khan, are very selective about the release dates of their films and most of the times they reserve a festival day. But Akshay Kumar has just now proved with his epic reply that he doesn't need to reserve any festival day to release his movie! Recently, while interacting with the media, Akshay was asked whether he has any concrete plan to release his films during the Republic day, as his upcoming film, Airlift will release on January 22, 2016. To which Akshay replied, "I can come out any time of the year, why only Republic Day? But yes, festival release is definitely advantageous. It is vacation time, people have money as they get their bonus. So obviously releasing movies during festive occasions help, there is no denying that. Business is good then." Later, when Akshay was quizzed about why doesn't he reserve any festival day for his release, he replied, "I never get the festival dates for my releases, they go away fast. What to do? The bookings for these festivals are done much in advance, almost two years in advance, then where do I get the dates?"We wonder what Shahrukh-Salman-Aamir have to say on this Akshay Kumar's witty reply! With the trailer release of Akshay Kumar's Airlift, he has proved once again that he can do full justice to any character, whether it's a comic role or a serious role, no one can beat his versatile acting skills!
