What is so special about Akshay Kumar?

Akshay Kumar is a prominent figure in the realm of Hindi cinema, renowned as both an actor and film producer. With a career spanning over three decades, Kumar boasts a filmography of more than 100 movies and a collection of accolades, including two National Film Awards.

Notably, he consistently appeared on Forbes' lists of the highest-paid celebrities and actors in the world from 2015 to 2020.

Akshay embarked on his acting journey in 1991 with "Saugandh" and swiftly tasted commercial success just a year later with the action-packed thriller "Khiladi."
