Akshay Kumar doesn't like using body doubles for his action scenes and says that the day he is unable to carry them himself, he will stop working in such films.

"I have always done my stunt scenes on my own. I never allow anybody to do my stunts. The day I will not be able to do so, I will stop working in action films. I promise you," Akshay told reporters during the trailer launch of Khiladi 786.

The actor, whose last hit "Rowdy Rathore" was a remake of a Southern film, assures that "Khiladi 786" has an original story.

"No, this film is not a remake of any South film. It's an original story," he said.

Directed by debutant Ashish Mohan, the film is co-produced by Akshay and Himesh Reshammiya and features Asin as the female lead. However, the actress gave the trailer launch a miss. It is slated for Dec 7 release.
