Akshay Kumar will be seen next in 'Khiladi 786'
Rajeev Bhatia waited tables in Bangkok before he dashed off to Mumbai, became Akshay Kumar, and started ruling Bollywood's Box Office tables. He has now become one of the top stars of Indian Cinema.
His upcoming film 'Khiladi 786', the latest from the action-comedy series, hits screens on December 7.
"I feel great about it. It (the "Khiladi" tag) had never gone away from me, I always used to take risks and it's great because 'Khiladi' is a word which means a player, a sportsman. You can connect it with anything, so it's great coming back to it," Akshay said of his comeback to the "Khiladi" franchise after almost a decade.
Here is a pictorial salute to the Khatarnak Khiladi.
