Akkis Stood Tall
Akshay Kumar came on scene many years ago as a young action hero who was martial arts expert.
He hit the screen with movies like Saugand, Mr Bond. but it didn't take long for Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia to become Akshay Kumar.
Akshay who before joining Bollywood worked in some Chinese restaurant in bangkok has come a long way. his first hit which led him to stardom was off course Mohra. and Akshay never looked back.
then followed the Khiladi series in 1990's which actually were his low points apart from the first Khiladi of Abbas Mastan.
In 2000 Akshay was back with a bang with Dhadkan sans the action hero image. this time around Akshay was doing completely different roles ),Dhadkan(2000),Andaaz(2003), Aitraaz(2004) and Bewafaa(2005) and also a very intense role of a son in father-son relationship movie Waqt(2005.
and of course who can forget Akshay kumars comic role in Hera Pheri. I think today Akshay has proved that he was not a fluke. I just hope soon he gets out of the Garam Masala, Pheri hera pheri type of stuff
On personal front Akshay has always been a stud he had a long affair with Raveena Tandon then he had many girlfriends Shilpa Shetty, Mamta kulkarni, Pooja Batra(does any one remember her) Mahima Chaudhry. and of late Priyanka Chopra.
Akshay is married to Twinkle and they seem to be a happy couple. with 2 kids
Over the years I think Akshay has stood test of times and though he has never managed to be called a good actor and never was in league with say Aamir or Shahrukh khan. but yet I think Akshay has always managed to hold his ground and find space for himself. He his an extremely hard working man and has come up sans any godfather with just his persistence hard work
As a human being Akshay is gentleman and gem of a person and a self made Gentleman.
