Akshay Kumar

Akshay was born in Amritsar in a Punjabi family and raised in Old Delhi, but later, he shifted to Koliwada in Mumbai. He tried his luck in modelling when one of his students, who was a photographer, recommended him to a modelling agency. After achieving success in this, he changed his name from Rajeev Om Bhatia to Akshay Kumar; as he saw a movie in which the actor opposite to his favourite actress was named Akshay.

In the film “Aaj” in 1987, he did his 17-second debut performance as a Karate Instructor. Here’s a glimpse of his performance in the movie. His first signed film was Deedar whereas Saugandh was his first release.

He got engaged to actress Twinkle Khanna twice, daughter of famous actor Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia, and married her on 17 January 2001. They are blessed with two children: one son and one daughter and Akki prefers keeping his children away from media and giving them a normal lifestyle.

Besides acting, he has also hosted in numerous TV shows titled Seven Deadly Arts with Akshay Kumar, Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi (Season 1,2,4), MasterChef India (Season 1), and Dare 2 Dance.

Apart from acting, he has also sung Punjabi devotional song “Nirgun Raakh Liya” and whatever the profit was made from the album, was donated to the victims of the train bombings of Mumbai. Here’s the video of the devotional song, which was sung by him.

Akki is a bit superstitious and has never written anything on a page unless he writes an ‘Om’ on it. Akshay has played the role of a police officer in 15 films. He has also done movies concerning social awareness to raise and eradicate some social malpractices or taboos- “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” and “Padman” are few of them.
