Akshay Kumar is the living example of perfection in all ways. Akshay Kumar is a pragmatic man. He knows fame can be a fair-weather friend. His success has been hard-won and he stays clear of complacency. It is a metaphorical bus, slowly filling up with the year’s top performers—those who have won their audience’s hearts and proved valuable at the box office.
He’s lost many races and felt the pain of failure. But then he picks up the pieces and starts again, one movie at a time. From the cramped streets of Chandni Chowk to being a chef in Bangkok, and ultimately being one of the highest-paid actors in Bollywood, Akshay has left no stones unturned.
This actor has an ability in him that he is termed to be different from others due to some of the following reasons:-
There is no doubt in saying that Akshay is one of the most disciplined actors in Bollywood. The actor not only follows his gym regime for his fitness but avoids drinking and smoking.
After reaching a certain level of popularity, superstars refuse to do small roles in women-centric movies. Even if they do, they make sure to promote themselves more. However, the Khiladi of Bollywood has recently said in an interview that he does not mind doing a small role. In one of his interview with Indian Today, the actor said “I am fine to do a small role if it’s a good film. I wouldn’t even mind if someone else has a bigger role than me in a film, provided the script is nice.”
Akshay’s fitness is partly due to his mantra of ‘early to bed, and early to rise’. The actor is hard-working and there is no second thought to it. However, to make sure that he is always on time, and maintain his fitness, the actor makes sure to sleep and wake up on time.
Being vocal about politics is sometimes difficult for Kumar. However, Akshay has never shied away from sharing his views. While he and his better-half, Twinkle Khanna might seem to be on opposite ends in their political views, they share a lovely bonding and are equally vocal about their views.
Akshay Kumar faced a lot of ups and downs in his career, there was a time when critics wrote him off as a failed actor, also wasn’t recognized at the Filmfare Awards, for a good long time. But giving up was not the option he knew success is the only option he envisions, today he has reached and topped the game, is among the highest-paid actor proving that ‘Failure breeds success’
Akshay Kumar comes from an army background. His father served as a non-commissioned officer in the Indian army; then united nations for a while. Humility doesn’t come easily with all that fame and money, but Akshay throughout his time in Bollywood has kept himself rooted to the ground.
