Akshay Kumar

Actor ● Special Appearance ● Producer


A long road traveled; from a waiter in Bangkok, to one of the most successful actors in Bollywood, Akshay Kumar has come a long way. As an instructor in martial artist, Rajiv Bhatia always dreamt of making it big in that field but when a student suggested that with his good looks and a good built, he should take up modelling, the anonymous Rajiv Bhatia began his journey as Akshay Kumar who then slowly but surely worked his way up to becoming one of the most talented stars of the industry. Although his first few films were unsuccessful at the box office, they helped Akshay get noticed for his dancing abilities and his dare-devilish stunts. His first hit film was 'Khiladi' and although it was a success, the top banners continued to be elusive until 'Yeh Dillagi' which not only got him recognition but marked his position as a top league actor. With a series of 'Khiladi' movies including the 'Khiladiyon Ke Khiladi', Akshay became the quintessential 'action hero'. But with 'Mr. & Mrs. Khiladi', 'Dil To Pagal Hai' and 'Aflatoon', he attempted new genres in order to change his stereotypical image, and he was quite successful at it.Then came another memorable performance with the film 'Hera Pheri' which brought to the forefront his strength in comedy and superb timing as he held his ground with the seasoned Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty. He is one of the most sought after actors who commands a strong box-office opening.

Trivia:
Akshay dislikes parties, and rarely spends more than 30 minutes at any of the glamorous movie industry parties.

Apparently Akshay is awful at memorising dialogues, and has devised a backup system just in case he fumbles. A paper with his dialogues are stuck on a co-star's costume, or on their back, or on a prop, from which he reads and delivers his lines.

Akshay is admittedly a card sharp who learnt how to fix cards during his days in Thailand.

Akshay is one of the few superstars of the Hindi film industry who has managed to sustain great success without any powerful family backing or the support of any big banners.

Two of the qualities he loves in his wife are her honesty and candour.

Salim Khan, arguably Bollwyood's great story-teller and a certain supserstar's dad, is extremely fond of Akshay. Salimsaab often asks Akshay to show him his movies. Akshay does that, but only after carefully checking if the flick will enhance the great screenwriter's opinion of his skill. Salman Khan, on his Koffee With Karan episode, hailed Akshay as the only actor who had successfully reinvented himself.
