Age, Early Life & Biography of Akshay Kumar
As of August 2022, Akshay Kumar is 54 years old.
He was born in the land of the Golden Temple, Amritsar, and brought up in the capital Delhi. His father, Hari Om Bhatia was an army officer (no wonder why Akshay is a martinet). After a little angel in the form of Alka (Akshay’s sister) was born, they made a move to Bombay. Similar to Akshay, his father was a firm believer in ‘Family Comes First” which is why he quit the army and joined as UNICEF’s accountant.
After he completed his karate training along with his schooling, Akshay’s intent on pursuing martial arts increased. Keeping all the difficulties aside, his father sent him to Bangkok where he would continue with his martial arts training. However, life had its plans for Akshay. After he left India with a black belt in Taekwondo, life took a complete turn for him. The path ahead was rugged. To make ends meet, during his stay in Bangkok for training, he worked as a waiter. Upon his arrival at Calcutta, to try a hand as a martial arts trainer, he had to work as a chef devoid of the recipe for success. Akshay then returned to Mumbai to try his luck there.
He did not give up. He kept on with his struggle. Little did he know that stardom was going to be an everyday routine for him.

Career of Akshay Kumar
Volatility. Probably not even the last word that is suitable enough to describe Akshay’s career. The times he struggled, there was consistency in that. From the time he started flourishing, there has been consistency in that too.
In the 1990s, Akshay signed his first film Sugandh. It tanked and so did his confidence. He signed many other films. However, none of them fared well at the box office. Just when it seemed that Akshay’s time is over, he bounced back. This time, to rise.
The year 1994 witnessed two of the biggest blockbusters of Bollywood from Akshay. “Mai Khiladi Tu Anari” and “Mohra” swept the crowd off their feet. From nobody, Akshay ended up signing the Yash Chopra-helmed “Yeh Dillagi” opposite the gorgeous Kajol.

Popularly, it is known as the “Khiladi” series even though he portrayed different characters and none of them were linked to each other (no wonder why he’s known as the Khiladi of Bollywood). All these films were commercially successful. He also played supporting roles in various movies and signed various other films. By the time the 2000s set in, Akshay Kumar had become a household name.
It was undoubtedly the 2000s that made Akshay Kumar the superstar of Bollywood. “Hera-Pheri” ruled the box office and continues to tickle our bones even today. “Khiladi 420” gave Akshay the chance to put his martial arts skill into action and boy did he impress!
