Happy Birthday Akshay Kumar: Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar is soon going to become the first actor from his generation to deliver more than 50 successful films (Average/Plus and above). The actor, who made his Hindi film debut in 1991 has acted in around 114 films out of which 49 have proved to be successful ventures at the Box-Office. Given the magnitude of films done by the Khiladi of Bollywood the strike rate of 42.98 is quite good. The strike rate also suggests that every 2 out of 5 films done by Akshay Kumar proves to be a successful venture at the Box-Office.

The first successful film of Akshay Kumar’s career was Khiladi, the film which gave him the title of being “Bollywood’s Khiladi”. The movie also established the “Action Image” for the superstar, who has acted in a lot of action films in his career spanning for over 27 years. Very few stars from the industry have been able to sustain in the industry for over 25 years, and Akshay Kumar one of those rare Bollywood stars to attain the feat. In-fact, he is still going strong and has a lot of fuel still left before going out of steam. His next release, 2.0 is expected to be the 50th Successful film of his career. Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra are two other stars who have acted in over 50 successful films and post 2.0, Akshay Kumar will join the list consisting of these legends.

Acting in 50 successful films is no joke and the stats in itself prove that Akshay Kumar is a mini-industry in himself who has the ability to consistently churn out successful films year after year.

  1. What Tees maar Khan seriously..? Though it may be an average affair in terms of BO but then Singh is bling too deserves a place in this list it made 90+ crores

  2. Wish Bharat Hriday Samrat Superstar Akshay Kumar a very Happy Birthday from the bottom of my heart. He has entertained the nation, and the world now for 25 long years and he looks young and fit to rock us for another 25 years with his talent, persona and generosity.

    He is a one man parallel industry. As when a superstar does a film, it affects the economics of the Film Industry in a big way. And Superstar Akshay Kumar does 3-4 films in a year normally and so it churns the economic wheels of the industry and hence the country as well. A superstar doing a film gives employment to directors, editors, cameramen, choreographers, cinamatographers, directors of photography, musicians, singers, music directors, co-stars, character actors, dress designers, tailors, side actors, dancers, dance directors, fight directors, stuntment, light boys, side actors, caterers, exhibitors, distributors, financiers, theater owners, publicists, advertisers, film reviewers, trade portals and magazines, newspapers…the list is endless… Most superstars do 1 or 2 films a year…some do one in 2-3 years. So when Superstar Akshay Kumar does 3-4 films a years he drives the economics of the film industry tremendously in a macro way. Which is very good for the film industry and India.

    Superstar Akshay has been on the top of the charts for many years as one of the top, tax payers in the country and many years he has topped it too.

    He was the first ever to cross the 3000 crores in total box office, life time earnings by any Indian actor.

    Superstar Akshay Kumar this year won the 7th place among the worlds top 10 highest earning film stars for 2018, and was the highest earning Indian celebrity (there were only two Indians on this list) on the list of the worlds top highest earning 100 celebrities. And he totally deserves this as he has worked very hard for it .

    Superstar Akshay Kumar is so benevelent when it comes to philantrophy. He has done so much for India and Indians like….soldiers, farmers, film stuntmen, women, sportsmen and sportswomen, people hit by natural disasters…. the list is endless.

    Superstar Akshay Kumar is an ideal icon for youth and for all people in general, he has maintened his health, phisique and fitness in the right way, and by not taking short cuts to develop it with the use of protiens, injections and steriods, which can be very harmful in the long run.

    After all his achievements after reaching the very top in the film industry though coming form outside as a middle class common man, what marvels me is that he is still very down to earth, easy going, punctual, humble and does not get into any fights with his coleagues.

    If there is one Indian Icon who is a beacon of hope and success then he truly is Bharat Hriday Samrat Superstar Akshay Kumar. Happy Birthday to you and may God bless you.

    P.S: And yes Waqt Hamara Hai was a successful film for sure, there is no doubting that as I remember even Fillmfare magazine’s trade column of that time mentioning that.

  4. I think you need to check the verdict of Singh is Bling, Brothers, Sangharsh, Naam Shabana too. Also, you need to add Dil to pagal hai in this list coz he was nominated as for best supporting actor by film fare. I think Akshay Kumar has already crossed 50 successfuls films.

    Happy Birthday to Akshay Kumar. See you soon in cinemas.

  5. Why to doubt? ‘Waqt Hmara Hai’ was a semi-hit by that movie Akki got an identity in film industry. And one more thing, please ammend your list and add more films like Desi Boys because Akshay has already crossed 50 successful movies.

  6. One thing is sure that Akshay Kumar never got Filmfare award because he is never considered as real actor He is never been approached by Big Directors like Karan Johar Sanjay Leela Bhansali Yash chopra Raju Hirani Aditya Chopra etc He is just another non actor like Jeetendra
