Bollywood actor, Akshay Kumar who made a debut in 1991 with Saugandh is one of the most successful stars of Indian cinema. Kumar, who is popular known as the Khiladi of Bollywood has acted in over 100 films till date, out of which approximately 28 are clean hits.
Akshay is currently going through one of the best phase of his career as an actor, since he has experimented by taking up films belonging to difference genres and found success in them.
While strictly in terms of star power, the success streak witnessed by Akshay between 2007 and 2010 was the best ever for him as most of the films opened with a bang at the Box-Office and proved to be immensely successful films. The actor delivered a record opener in the form of Singh Is King (2008), and films like Kambakkht Ishq and Phir Hera Pheri were near record openers.
Talking about the current phase, Akshay Kumar has not delivered a single unsuccessful film since the release of Singh Is Bliing on 2nd October 2015. To put things to perspective, Akshay Kumar has not delivered an outright unsuccessful film for 963 days and counting. After Singh Is Bliing, Akshay delivered 5 back to back HIT films in the form of Airlift, Housefull 3, Rustom, Jolly LLB 2 and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and a moderately successful film in the form of Padman. Although Padman wasn’t an outright hit, no distributors lost money from the film as Sony Pictures managed to break even. Although he hasn’t delivered hit films of huge magnitude i.e. the massive blockbusters, he has a solid volume of hit films, which is commendable.
Kumar has an interesting slate of films ahead and he has indeed taken a step further by signing on for big budget event films like 2.0, Kesari and Housefull 4. Apart from the three event films, he has reportedly also come on board for Hera Pheri 3 which is another exciting film on card. Till date, Akshay is on a streak of delivering 6 back to back successful films, and if his next four films i.e. GOLD, Kesari, Housefull 4 and Hera Pheri 3 strike gold at the ticket window, he will become one of those rare Indian stars to have delivered 10 back to back successful films.
