Hey, that's my word!

em>From Variety's review of Aaja nachle:

Though Dia is welcomed by Ajanta's aged caretaker, Doctor (Raghubir Yadav), the rest of the town has mixed feelings about her return, not least its businesslike mayor, Raja Singh (matinee idol Akshaye Khanna, guesting).

Some of Dixit's best scenes are opposite Khanna, with the two experienced thesps sparking off each other; more of this relationship could have given Dia's role an emotional heft it lacks. Singh finally gives Dia two months to put on a show and prove Ajanta still has a place in the town's life before hard-nosed developer Haru Farooq (Irrfan Khan) moves in.

Of course, Akshaye is nowhere as experienced as Madhuri is but he's definitely acquired that magic status. He's not just an actor but a thespian! That's why Aaja Nachle is a major turning point in his acting career. No matter the space or time given hime, he simply commands the stage.

Exactly, that's what I always want since Akshaye Khanna's supporting role in Dil Chahta Hai. The character-role must be well-written and also well-directed. And, it's should be meatier or quite meatier. Above all, the whole script must be equally good.

THAT'S WHY HE IS ALWAYS CONSIDERED AS THE NATURAL GIFTED ACTOR!

Thus, I tried this way...

U'll find on page 8 - page 9:

But, u can try other alternatives...

I think that Bipasha Basu is the villain in Race!
