Often dismissed as the man who makes way too many movies, almost at a “Mithun-da Ooty production” pace, and also one of the highest money making machines of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar’s long acting career spans across many flops, hits, superhits and 25 years. Yes, it is Akshay Kumar’s Silver Jubilee year in Bollywood, as he started his career with a little known film called Aag, back in 1987 as a Karate Instructor. Through the most part of 90’s that was what the Akshay Kumar image was – the Bangkok returned, hairy-chested, and bushy eyebrowed guy, who does not look like a superstar, has Deepak Tijori as his sidekick, but can definitely kick some serious ass. He was the 90’s action superstar, trying to sneak in an Abbas Mustan hit here, and a Rajiv Rai hit there. Serenading “Mast Mast” ladies , and simultaneously beating the crap out of one-eyed villains, Akshay Kumar emerged as the Khiladi, a bankable movie hero.
But even so, he never emerged as the one with the most fangirls, or the one getting nominated at any movie awards show. He’d make an appearance and charge a hefty sum, but would hardly make it to the nominees list even. Even though he is one of the busiest of movie stars, churning out 4-5 movies a year, it took me a while to actually remember the last Akshay Kumar movie I really liked. With 4 movies set to release in 2012 – Rowdy Rathore, Joker, Housefull 2, and Once Upon A Time Again, we can only wish Akshay Kumar the best for 2012. And here is our favourite 10 from his strong 100 movie filmography.
