Akshay Kumar is one of the most bankable stars of Bollywood. In his career of 30 years in Bollywood, he has given us many blockbuster and memorable performances. However, he has never been this consistent as far as giving hits is concerned, as he is now.
From Holiday, that was released in 2014 to Kesari, that released this year, almost every movie has crossed the 100-crore benchmark at Box-Office. He has hardly given a flop in all these years and this kind of consistency is hard to find, especially when you are doing 3-4 movies every year.
Akshay Kumar is currently busy in promoting his upcoming movie ‘Mission Mangal’. Next, he will be shooting for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’, where he will be seen playing the character of a cop. After that, he has an amazing line up of movies which include ‘Housefull’, ‘Good News’, ‘Laxmmi Bomb’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’ and the remake of Tamil blockbuster Kaththi.
Recently, in an interview, Akshay Kumar revealed how he jumps on from one movie to other so fast. He also called other actors as “idiots” for locking themselves in rooms to understand the character. He said:
“Other actors, they take two or three months to get into character. They lock themselves away and really torture themselves . . . Idiots!”.
“I can’t do that. I take two or three days and that’s it. I want to get the movie done!”
Akshay Kumar, who has done more than 125 Bollywood movies, also went on to reveal how he faced 16 consecutive flops and was panned by the critics but he didn’t lose hope. He said:
“There was a time when I had 16 consecutive flops, The media said I was finished. They said I was furniture. They were being kind, actually. I was a whole showroom.”
There’s no denying to the fact that Akshay Kumar is an inspiration for everyone. From his lifestyle, fitness, to everything that he does, Akshay Kumar is an inspiration.
