Akshay Kumar completes 30 years in Bollywood; Sajid Nadiadwala, Aanand L. Rai open up about Samrat Prithviraj star

With Samrat Prithviraj, Akshay Kumar completes a stellar three decades in Bollywood. Over the course of his impressive career, the actor has had the chance to collaborate with many ace filmmakers, including Sajid Nadiadwala and Aanand L. Rai.

In a statement, Nadiadwala opened up about how he and Kumar have known each other ever since they were in the fourth grade. The producer talked about how Kumar started as his senior, then classmate and then junior, and finally how they both ended up in the same fraternity together. On the star completing 30 years in his career, Nadiadwala said, “There is a Telugu film industry, there is a Tamil industry, there’s the Hindi industry and there is something called the AK industry. He’s got his industry on his own.”

Calling Kumar ‘magnanimous’ and ‘very professional’, the filmmaker added that there has never been an ‘incomplete’ Akshay Kumar film, and that the actor deserves ‘applause’ for his work in the industry. The producer, who has produced the actor’s films like Housefull and Heyy Babyy, also wished Kumar well for his future projects.

On the other hand, Rai has collaborated with Kumar on the director’s previous film, Atrangi Re. Saying Kumar became a bigger star with each role he did, Rai went on to talk about the incredible range the actor has displayed in his career. He gave examples of Kumar’s films such as Toilet Ek Prem Katha, Padman and the upcoming film, Samrat Prithviraj. Calling Kumar a sheer combination of discipline and guts, the filmmaker also revealed that he considers the actor’s ‘emotional side’ as the best part. “He lives every relationship to its fullest. I think that’s very important for an actor,” said Rai.

Samrat Prithviraj will be released in theatres on June 3.
