Suniel Shetty: I can still do action
Action star Suniel Shetty, 56, doesn't see age getting in his way of adding more action-packed movies to his filmography.
In a recent interview, he said age is just a number and that he is as fit and strong as he used to be years ago. "Age is just a number and I am fit and strong enough to do action [films], as I was earlier. So, there's no running away from it. That's what my audience expects from me — action and comedy. That's what I am going to deliver," Shetty said.
The last actioner that he featured in, however, didn't fare well at the box-office.
Talking about A Gentleman (2017), in which he played an antagonist, he said, "There was a lot of difference between what was narrated to me and what was done. I was very disappointed [with] the way they edited. But then I dug my own grave, so I can't complain. Now, I have got amazing films happening."
Shetty says that his physical prowess was his golden ticket to Bollywood.
"I got into cinema owing to my physique. I think I owe everything, [even] my life, to fitness. Even at this age, I am fit and lean. I can play the sport that I want, and train the way I want to."
