Happy Birthday Akshay Kumar Bhatia

His journey has been a long and arduous one. He studied martial arts in Bangkok and worked as a chef. He then came back to Mumbai, where he started teaching martial arts. One of his students happened to be a photographer and recommended him to pursue modelling. Akshay Kumar

The anonymous Rajiv Bhatia began his journey as Akshay Kumar who then slowly began to work his way up to evolve into one of the most talented stars in the industry. Unlike most of his peers Akshay didn’t have any godfather to launch him.

Action hero
First few of his films were box office debacles. Akshay anyway got noticed for dancing skills and his daredevil stunts. His first true hit film was Khiladi (1992) and although it was a success, the top banners continued to be elusive until Yeh Dillagi (1993), which not only got him recognition but also marked his position as a top league actor.

Though Jai Kishen and Main Khiladi Tu Anari (1993) were quite successful at the box office, it was Mohra (1993) and Sabse Bada Khiladi (1995) that catapulted Akshay to fame and established his position as one of the top most actors. With a series of Khiladi movies including the Khiladiyon Ke Khiladi (1996), Akshay became the quintessential ‘action hero’. He had carved a niche for himself. 

Comic and tragic caper
He was now ready to break that mould. In 1997 with Mr. & Mrs. Khiladi, Dil To Pagal Hai and Aflatoon, he attempted new genres. Another attempt at a distinct role was with Ajnabee (2001), in which he played the villain. He was appreciated by audiences and critics alike. He even won his first Filmfare Award under the Best Villain category.

Romantic lead
Dhadkan (2000), where he starred opposite Shilpa Shetty reaffirmed the fact that aside from being an action hero, Akshay Kumar was also the perfect romantic hero.

Donning all hats
In the same year came another memorable performance with the film Hera Pheri (2000) 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. His comic performances in films such as Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004), Garam Masala (2005), Phir Hera Pheri (2006) and Jaan-E-Mann (2006) met with critical acclaim. Akshay-Twinkle

Midas touch
His success further rose in 2007, when he starred in four consecutive commercial hits – Namastey London, Heyy Babyy, Bhool Bhulaiyaa and Welcome. He continued his golden touch with Singh Is Kinng.

Low tide
In 2009, his Chandni Chowk to China opposite Deepika Padukone and Eight by Ten, both were critical and commercial failures to box office. Kambakkht Ishq , De Dana Dan, Blue and Khatta Meetha(2010) got huge initial but couldn’t sustain. Houseful(2010) brings him most awaited cean hit after singh is king in 2008.

 Crystal-ball gazing
His forthcoming films include Vipul Shah’s Action Replay, Deepa Mehta’s Komagata Maru and Nikhil Advani’s Patiala House.

Family wise
During his career, Akshay Kumar was romantically linked with several of his co-stars, namely Raveena Tandon, Shilpa Shetty, Pooja Batra and even Rekha. He finally married Twinkle Khanna, the daughter of veteran actors Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia, in 2001 and is today a proud father of a son named Aarav. He is seven years old.

Awards etc.
Today, Akshay is one of the most sought after actors, who command a strong box-office opening. In 2008, the University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada conferred an Honorary Doctorate of Law on him in recognition of his contribution to Indian cinema. In 2009, he was awarded the Padma Shri.

Dear akshay a very very happy birthday to you have a good one and always keep us lot, your fans your lovers entertained for atleast another 5 to 10 years or maybe longer and also good luck with your next promo ACTION REPLAY which is releasing today with your birthday too, am really looking forward to it and hope it rockkks big time, keep rocckiinnnng.

  4. Dabangg – Movie Review By Nauman
    Formula and cluttered masala movies have been always appreciated by the audience in the past. If we see the history 80% of these type of movies have been the biggest grosser. Lets highlight this yonder of movies with Indian mirch masala.

    Firstly just select a normal and attractive story. Don’t go for a master piece and different story. Then sign a super star (Salman Khan). Get a good looking heroine (Sunakshi Sinha). Put some good, memorable and funny dialogues. Now you need to put some action sequence and show the heroism of the hero. When movie is complete then put one item song as tadka and release that movie in festive season (as salad). A complete masala entertaining movie is ready.

    Arbaaz Khan who hasn’t achieved any substantial success in his acting career has started his second innings as a producer. Ofcourse he had to sign his big brother Salman Khan in first Homo Production. Dabangg is most awaited movie of this year. And audience is crazy to see their favorite hero Salman khan back in Wanted image.

    • I am bit disappointed. My be my expectations was more OR my visual imaginations was bit more sparking.

      BTW Manish i was wrong, Akshay is not playing son. Though it would have been wonderful idea if father-son due played by Akshay only.

    • But i have faith on vipul, His movies are generally better than promos, NL and Waqt, both promos were sucked, but movies turned out too good.

  6. personally it AR promo is not up to the my expectations. Vipul didnt show story in a proper way and he didnt show old age of Akki-ash. he focused on only comedy.
    wait for second promo.

  7. I dont think he will show the old look , we will see it on theatres only

  8. Yakuza Bhai, Dabangg review is up. did u read ?

  9. Manish they will show old looks jst before release may be in 2nd theatrical promo

  12. Yakuza , did u see the anti akki forces on work on NG? , do u think it will turn out this bad? Iam surprised and astonished 😦
    Iam nt bullish on movie’s business but still iam up with it . I still remember despite HF opemimg Big same ppl were saying not a gud start on NG

  13. the people who has seen “Back To The future” Trilogy already are going to love n watch this movie for sure..bcoz origional was a master peace. and along with akshay that is for sure that we r going to get something spaial like old one…..st promo is good for me to get storyline……….awesome………..
