Happy Birthday Akshay Kumar: Here Are Seven Of Our Favourite Films Of The Khiladi
From Pad Man to Desi Boyz here are 7 of his finest performances that you should definitely watch.
From tickling our funny bones with his slapstick comedy to igniting a sense of patriotism among us, Akshay has done it all. Rajiv Bhatia a.k.a. Akshay Kumar’s movie trajectory has only been an upward curve, one amazing performance after another. Adept in martial arts and a dedicated family man, it is rare to come across an actor who is so true to his personal and professional life.
Akshay has become the flagbearer of highlighting the various issues that thrive in our society. Putting the medium of cinema to effective use, the actor engages and educates the audience with his movies.
Let’s take a look at the versatile actor’s seven films.
1.Toilet: Ek Prem Katha– Revolving around the need for toilets and sanitation, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar, is a mouthpiece for the Swachh Bharat campaign. Akshay’s Keshav revolting against the traditionalist ideology of his father and going lengths to procure toilets for his house and spreading the same message in the village is a win.
2.Pad Man- An inspiring story that breaks the silence on menstruation, Padman starring Akshay Kumar and Radhika Apte highlight the importance of menstrual hygiene. A quid pro quo is struck in the film: Gayatri’s (Apte) malpuas for Lakshmikant Chauhan’s (Akshay) promise of sanitary pads. Kumar won the National award for the best social film.
3.Holiday– An action-packed thriller, Holiday: A Soldier is Never Off Duty is a perfect Bollywood package. A combination of unflinching stunts and chase sequence, romance and drama with a tinge of humour goes to show that Akshay is an actor who can do it all. The film is dedicated to the army and their sacrifices.
4.Rustom- Akshay delivers a fantastic performance in Rustom– a murder mystery and courtroom drama. A decorated naval officer, Akshay manages to pull off a dashing hero and serious defender at the same time, while he presents his case in the court.
5.Heyy Babyy- What would you find a baby at your doorstep? Well, Heyy Babyy is the story of Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh and Fardeen Khan, also featuring Vidya Balan. The movie and the comic timings will leave the audience in splits and aww-ing at some emotional moments.
6.Desi Boyz- Essayed by Akshay and John Abraham, Desi Boyz has a lot of energy and humour. The songs will reverberate in your ears long after the movie is over. Akshay has the penchant of looking younger in all his films. The two macho actors have previously worked together in the hilarious film Garam Masala.
7.Bhagam Bhag- Mystery, twists, laughter… and some more twists. Bhagam Bhag proves to be a fun watch. A wholesome star cast and with funny bones like Govinda, Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal, the film will make your jaws hurt.
We want a quid pro quo: Our love for Akshay Kumar for his unmatched exceptional films. Happy Birthday! Akshay.
