Akshaye Khanna on his irole in his new film

Akshaye Khanna talks about the motivations for corruption in his new film The versatile Akshaye Khanna is back to prove his acting prowess in Rumy Jaffery's "Gali Gali Chor Hai". Interestingly, the film touches on one of the most hotly debated topics today - corruption. "Corruption has always been an issue in this country, but our film is less about corruption and more about the system that has plagued our society," says the actor. "Nocountry in the world is free of corruption. Until we pay our government servants well, we cannot expect them not to make money on the side. It is not greed, but necessity that makes them indulge in corruption." Khanna has kept himself updated on Anna Hazare's anti-corruption movement for the Jan Lokpal bill. "What Anna's movement has done is remind me of the freedom India's constitution gives to its citizens. One man believes in something and his freedom of speech and expression has got the Parliament's attention and rocked the government. Whether one is for or against the bill is irrelevant. I don't think anybody is against the spirit of Anna." Talking about his film, Akshaye reveals, "I play a common man, a cashier by profession, who gets trapped in this system. His life turns topsy-turvy because of a small incident, where he stands to lose all that is dear to him - his house, his job, his wife and friends. But the film is peppered with humour. There is a certain depth, dignity and reality to it, which is rare
for a comedy, and sets the film apart. Let's see what happens."
