But the “Gunday” actor is not bothered by comparisons.

Arjun told IANS: “I think the audience won’t tend to compare…With Akshay and me, the age group is different…I don’t think there will be a major comparison that way. He’s (Akshay) somebody who has achieved a lot in his life. Rohit is also another fantastic personality, and I have my unique personality.”
