Unveiling unknown facts, Akshay Kumar shared, “It’s a coincidence that I got a chance to act. I used to go to kids houses and teach them karate, martial arts in Bombay and I used to earn 5-6 thousand rupees per month. One day, someone told me that you are tall and smart, why don’t you try modelling? I didn’t know what modelling was then. But, someone gave me a card and invited me for modelling and I went over to town and did an ad for a furnishing showroom, their shop was on linking road. So I went there for the ad shoot and I saw that this was an amazing thing that I came for and in the meantime, a beautiful model came over there and we had to pose. And just like that, they kept on taking photos for about 2 hours and gave me 21 thousand rupees for modelling. I thought am I crazy to work for a month and earn 5 thousand, I rather do this instead. Within 2.5-3 hours, I earned 21 thousand which was amazing. After that, I started modelling, working hard, did ramp walks and slowly, someone showed my photos to Pramod Chakravorty and I got my first film – ‘Deedar’ from him.”
The trio will be seen donating the proceeds from the winning amount to ‘Bharat Ke Veer’, a government website that helps the families of the soldiers who’ve passed while serving our country.
So, tune in to “Kaun Banega Crorepati’s Shaandaar Shukravaar on Friday, 5th November at 9:00 pm only on Sony Entertainment Television.
