Akshay Kumar or Khiladi Kumar as we know him, made his debut in the year 1991 with a movie called “Saugandh”. His first blockbuster was the suspense thriller Khiladi(1992), the first film of the Khiladi series. Since then he has never looked back and is now a towering personality of Indian film industry.With no Bollywood background he made a niche for himself as the action hero of times when his contemporaries SRK, Salman and others were playing on their romantic cards.
He is the one actor who created his path without any Godfather. He even mentioned in “Koffee with Karan” that he did not have a choice, he did whatever films he was getting.Big banners were not casting him. Over the years we have seen numerous up & downs in his career from Khiladi of 90’s to the comedy king in 2000’s. He has given numerous hits & numerous flops. His list of hit movie includes Mohra, movies from Khiladi Series & his recent movies like Holiday,Baby,Airlift,Rustom,Toilet: Ek Prem Katha etc. He has proved versatility through his outstanding performances.
Though his Bollywood career has been relatively clean (no arguments with fellows) but he has had a colorful history with many of his leading ladies starting from Pooja Batra to Priyanka Chopra. The list also has names like Raveen Tandon, Shilpa Shetty, his wife Twinkle Khanna, and the evergreen Rekha (we had our eyes out too on that revelation).He was known as Casanova of bollywood. Well, Khiladi Kumar is now a family man. The better half of Akshay (Twinkle Khanna) is a successful interior designer, author and a former film actress. She is quite popular on twitter for his funny tweets as Mrsfunnybones.
The superstar we see today is not God’s overnight creation and has a list of failures attached with it.He has been a part of many horrible movies like Dancer, Mr. Bond, Aflatoon, Jaani Dushman ,Chandni Chowk to China etc.
According to filmywhisky, turning point for Akshay’s Khiladi image to a national icon was Namaste London. Check out his awesome speech here
2007 was one of the most successful year of his career. All the movies he acted in were declared Superhit or Hit.
Since then, he has climbed upwards only with few setbacks in form of idiotic movies like entertainment & humshakal.
Akshay Kumar got a national award in 2017 for his performance in Rustom and Airlift. He might get one more next year for Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
No doubt,today he is a star with power of taking any movie into the so called “100 crore club”.
We love to see Akshay in every role.
And so do you.Right?
