Akshay Kumar is currently one of the most bankable stars in Bollywood. If he agrees to be a part of a film, success is guaranteed. In last few years, his market value has shot up phenomenally and producers are ready to pay any amount of money to get him on board for their projects. It is true that Akki is one of the highest paid actors in the showbiz, but do you know that the much in demand actor had to do several odd jobs before he entered Bollywood and became a superstar. Yes, your favorite action star has worked as a waiter and a dishwasher in a restaurant called Metro Guest House in Bangkok, Thailand, to make ends meet. He used to make mere Rs. 1500 a month. After completing his chef degree, he worked as a chef also.
While Akshay was in Bangkok, he learnt martial arts also and became an expert in it. Upon his return to Mumbai, he started teaching martial arts to students. With the help of one of his students, Kumar landed a modeling assignment. He also assisted a photographer for 18 months without payment to shoot his first portfolio. However, soon he was roped in for the film ‘Deedar’ as its lead. But due to a delay in its shooting, Akshay’s another film ‘Saugandh’ (1992) released first and became his debut film.
After ‘Saugandh’, Khiladi Kumar appeared in several successful films, primarily in the action genre, such as ‘Waqt Hamara Hai’ (1993), ‘Mohra’ (1994), ‘Suhaag’ (1994), ‘Jaanwar’ (1999), etc. Later, he decided to experiment and did many romantic and comedy films, including ‘Dhadkan’ (2000), ‘Andaaz’ (2003) ‘Namastey London’ (2007), ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ (2007), ‘Singh Is Kinng’ (2008) ‘Housefull 2’ (2012), ‘Rowdy Rathore’ (2012) ‘Special 26’ (2012), ‘Holiday’ (2014), ‘Airlift’ (2016), ‘Housefull 3’ (2016) and ‘Rustom’ (2016). The actor was last seen in the Subhash Kapoor directorial ‘Jolly LLB 2’ (2017). His next few releases include ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’, ‘2. 0’ and ‘Padman. ’
TRIVIA: Akshay Kumar is quite sentimental about the ‘firsts’ in his life. The superstar still keeps his first house, car and motorcycle. . .

After finishing my post graduation in Mass Communication & Journalism from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprasth University, New Delhi, I tried my best to settle down in the national capital with a copywriting job in hand, but my profound fascination for films and a penchant for writing about them landed me in the maximum city, Mumbai. Now, I work as an Entertainment Journalist who loves to lose himself in films, books and old Bollywood melodies, especially sung by the legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar.

  1. You are right but in Indian society if a person from a good family starts doing odd jobs then the society degrade that family.
    In Indian Society we don’t have or understand dignity of labour which is very bad.
