There’s no shortcut to hard work: Akshay Kumar

In the same interview, Akshay was heard saying, “There's nothing called shortcut in life, whether it's your body or whether it's your work. Hard work has to be there. Just like I would call a VFX a shortcut. Even taking some kind of steroids for your body, a shortcut. And that way, even in your work also, hard work is important. There's nothing called a shortcut. I would just want them to know that the best way in life is to go through hard work.”
