Mumbai: Actor Anil Kapoor feels that the action genre was not new to him and in fact what his fellow stars are doing today he had done it much earlier.
Excited about the Friday release of action drama 'Tezz', the 52-year-old actor says that he wanted to explore the genre anew before he grows older.
"In a way yes...I think it is very natural phenomenon as what you could do ten years back that you can't do today, you have to change with time and temperament and age and you try to do your best. And you try to do what suits you and what you are capable of and sometimes you try to stretch yourself...saying you can work hard more. There is a lot of action and running scenes that I have tried to do my best in 'Tezz'," the actor said.
Kapoor, who will be seen in 'Tezz', 'Shootout at Wadala' and 'Race 2', besides with the American TV series '24', which will be made here for the Indian audience, said that what stars are doing today in action genre he had done it some 25 years ago by acting in films like 'Tezaab', 'Rakhwala' to name a few.
"I am preparing myself for this genre. I have always done films of this genre like 'Tezaab', 'Rakhwala', 'Kishen Kanhaiya', 'Laadla', 'Meri Jung'. These films had dramatic action sequences, which people (actors) are doing again with 'Singham', 'Wanted' etc. I have done this kind of films and they have been successful. For other actors all this kind of action is new thing but not for me. What I am trying is to do it differently," he said.
"Like what I did with Vijiyan (action director) 20 years back they (actors) are doing it now in films like 'Singham', 'Bodyguard', 'Dabangg'. I have done this kind of action 20-25 years back where with one punch 25 people fly in air and are injured at a time.. beating people," Kapoor said.
