Akshay Kumar has added yet another feather in what has been a glorious career stretching for over two decades. The superstar has won the National Award for Best Actor for his performance in ‘Rustom’, a commercially successful film which released during the Independence Day weekend last year.
Akshay becomes one of the few mainstream heroes to win the prestigious award. He joins Ajay Devgn and Amitabh Bachchan as one of the few major stars to have won the National Award for Best Actor.
Inspite of excellent performances in several films during the last decade, Bollywood awards haven’t really given Akshay his due. He wasn’t even nominated for Rustom or Airlift.
But the actor who turns 50 later this year, enjoying arguably the best phase of his career so far, has finally got his due.
