MUMBAI: Akshay Kumar, who has done many films with debutant directors like with Abbas-Mustan in ‘Khiladi’, Guddu Dhanoa in ‘Elaan’, Naresh Malhotra in ‘Yeh Dillagi’, and recently Sajid Khan in ‘Housefull’, enjoys the fresh ideas they bring in.

"It is not at all risky to work with newcomers… they have the greed, they want to do something, they want to prove themselves. I like working with newcomers because they have new ideas. With due respect to all other directors, who also make good films, I enjoy working with newcomers a lot," said the 44 year old actor to the media.

Not only does he like to work with first time directors, but also enjoys hiring fresh talents for his production houses – Hari Om Productions and Grazing Goat.

"I am making a film under my banner, Grazing Goat, with director Umesh. He has directed plays with Paresh Rawal and I liked one of his plays. I have taken the rights of the play and I am making it now. Paresh is there in the film and its called ‘OMG’. I hope it will get released by September this year," he quoted

Currently, the actor is looking forward to "Special Chabbis" and " Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again".
