Speaking about how he ensures socially relevant movies don’t lack on the entertainment quotient, Akshay said, “I had done a social film long back called Khatta Meetha but that didn’t work. It was about road construction but it takes time for people to get into the social kind of mood. I never make my film completely social as I often add a lot of commercial elements in the story. I make sure that there is a love story in my films. In-fact, to be very honest, I remember the love story more than the social aspect of the film.”
