Straying miles away from the glitter of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar has created for himself a unique space in Indian cinema. Picking on socially relevant topics and sending strong messages to society through major blockbusters, Akshay Kumar has touched many hearts over the years. Let’s take a look at his incredible journey so far.
Special 26 (2013)
After a series of comical roles, Akshay Kumar refreshed his audiences with a new look: a toned down and cool headed fake CBI officer. Boasting a neatly trimmed moustache and formal clothes, the actor played a sharp witted and understated leader of the gang. With unthinkable plot twists and clever humour, the actor redefined his movie style yet again!
Another hit from Akshay Kumar, this film kept things smart and crisp. With hints of patriotism, the audience enjoyed their favourite actor playing a cold undercover agent in a rugged look, taking down treacherous enemies. From impeccable action scenes to witty humour, Baby covers it all in this terrorism thriller!
With this movie, Akshay Kumar threw light on a true incident from Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait. He played a sharp and assertive businessman who single-handedly lead a rescue mission for many of his countrymen. Airlift (2016) reinstated the meaning of being a real-life hero!
Playing a decorated naval officer, Akshay Kumar’s ravishing performance was pumped with military flair. Defending himself from being accused of murder, in a full scale courtroom drama, the actor’s performance kept the audience at the edge of their seats.
Jolly LLB 2 (2017)
Akshay Kumar did justice to the sequel to an extremely successful movie, Jolly LLB (2013). His character portrayed a jovial and overly ambitious Jolly who in reality is an amateur lawyer. The audience witnessed a smooth transition in his character when justice for his unfortunate client became crucial to his mental peace.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017)
With this socially relevant film, Akshay Kumar does not disappoint his audience with this out of the box tale of love. His performance allows people to sympathize with the acute problems of rural India while also not sacrificing on entertaining. A neat balance of storytelling and sending a strong message to its viewers, Akshay Kumar redefines the art of relevant storytelling!
Pad Man (2018)
Following the trend of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Akshay Kumar gives his audience yet another flick to break stereotypes. This time about the highly tabooed notion of menstruation. PadMan is based on a true story of a societal hero, Arunachalam Muruganantham. He invented a low-cost sanitary napkins machine and reformed the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India. Overall, the movie provides heavy emphasis on the relevance of women in any society. Pad Man is yet another example of Akshay Kumar’s thoughtfulness pertaining to filmmaking.
The movie releases on January 25th 2018. We cannot wait to watch Akshay Kumar in this all new avatar!
