Akshay agreed to the fact that actresses in the Entertainment business have a shelf life.

Akshay Kumar's last release Toilet: Ek Prem Katha with Bhumi Pednekar did wonderfully well at the box office.

Mumbai: It’s not a hidden fact that the shelf life of the career of a film actress in is lesser than that of an actor. Of course we are getting to see many positive examples of the changing times, but the overall ratio is still very less.

'Rustom' star Akshay Kumar, who recently turned 50 this year, expressed his views on the same saying that women in the film industry are treated like time bombs!

Akshay agreed to the fact that actresses in the film industry have a shelf life. During an interview with a gossip portal, the National award winner actor said, "Unfortunately, actresses are treated like time bombs, which I feel is completely unfair. I’m beyond proud of all (those) who have not let the 10-year shelf life have any significance for their careers and have stormed past (that deadline) with pride."

On the work front, Akshay will next be seen in 'Padman'. The film also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in the lead. Directed by R Balki, the film is set to hit the screens on Republican weekend, 2018. Akshay will also be seen playing the main antagonist in Rajinikanth's '2.0', with Amy Jackson as the leading lady. He will soon start shooting for Reema Kagti's Indian sports film 'Gold' and Dharma Productions's 'Kesari', a film based on Battle of Saragarhi.
