Versatility at its Best: Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar Excels Across all Genres
With all the film genres that Akshay has touched upon and successfully conquered, the rags to riches superstar makes India proud to call him her own. From comedy and action to real life drama sprinkled with a dash of romance, Akshay demonstrates that no challenge is too great and that he can in fact do it all. His latest blockbuster film Special Chabbis (26) sees the talented actor delving into the realm of real-life drama that he has not much been associated with in the past.
With several highly accredited performances to his name, “the quintessential action hero” proves his versatile nature as his recent hits Special Chabbis, Khiladi 786, OMG: Oh My God, Rowdy Rathore, Housefull 2 soar at the box office. In Special Chabbis, although not his usual dare-devilish stunt based film, Akshay has been praised for his compelling and realistic portrayal of conman ‘Mon Singh’ in the acclaimed Neeraj Pandey directed gritty heist film. Akshay has previously made his mark with comedic roles in such films as Housefull 1 and 2, Welcome, De Dhana Dhan, Hera Phera, action film Rowdy Rathore, and a combination of both in Khiladi 786. His naturally funny and relatable nature made him the perfect candidate for these genres. In 2012 the international superstar starred in OMG: Oh My God, a poignant comedy film taking a sidewards glance at religion, spirituality and a person’s relation to God and the universe. Akshay was praised for his iconic performance as Lord Krishna Vasudev Yadav.
