Akshay Kumar may be the biggest superstar of the country today, but when he entered the industry 30 years ago, no one was ready to give him any work. People used to make fun of him and the director used to believe that Akshay cannot act. Since Akshay Kumar was a martial artist, he was offered action films.
Audition for Diya Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar
Akshay Kumar had told in the interview – I went to audition for the role of Deepak Tijori for Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander. The director thought my work was garbage and he threw me out of the film. In Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Akshay Kumar auditioned for Shekhar Malhotra ie the villain of the film. But Mansoor Khan rejected Akshay and gave this role to Milind Soman. Later Milind also left this film and finally this role was played by Deepak Tijori.
Everyone wanted to be an action hero
Akshay Kumar is one of the earliest action hero of Bollywood. At the same time, people liked his action films so much that he became the Khiladi Kumar of Bollywood. But Akshay Kumar never wanted to be an action hero. Akshay talked about his early days in an interview. Akshay told that during that time he used to do only action roles. Because no one offered him films like romance, drama, comedy.
Movies used to get replaced in a pinch
Akshay Kumar says that he used to get replaced by films overnight. Everyone knows that Ajay Devgan made his debut with Phool Aur Kaante. But Phool Aur Kaante was Akshay Kumar’s film. Akshay says that till tonight I was sure in the film and then the next day Ajay Devgan started shooting. I was fired without informing me. But Ajay Devgan said that I do not know what is true.
Used to leave films in the midst of a big film?
Talking about Phool Aur Kante, Ajay Devgan had told in an interview – I was told that a boy named Akshay was doing a film who has given up flowers and thorns in the pursuit of a big film. My father said you have to do a film. I was 18, I didn’t even want to do a film. I didn’t know Akshay then.
Akshay seen in different flavors
Akshay Kumar started as a player. His Khiladi films one after the other were proof that he is the perfect action hero. At the same time, these films brought the trend of Bollywood’s first series films, which later David Dhawan also played well with his No.1 series. Interestingly, Akshay Kumar is now a superhit in every flavor. In his patriotic flavor, Akshay Kumar has earned more than 1200 crores from the total films.
Shame on being an actor
Akshay was offered the first comedy film Hera Pheri and Akshay was very happy with this offer of Priyadarshan. In an interview, Akshay Kumar said that I used to be very ashamed that as an actor, I am playing only the same roles. My image was shattered and then more avenues opened for me. Now is the time that Akshay Kumar appears in every kind of film from patriotism to romance, action to science fiction and horror to drama. In the coming time, Akshay Kumar will be seen in films like Surrai Potri, Ram Setu, Selfie, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, Mission Cinderella.
