Akshay Kumar turns 50!

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, one of the biggest success-stories the industry has ever produced, turns 50 today. Born as Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia, his journey from Amritsar and Chandni Chowk to establishing himself as a film-industry legend in Mumbai, has inspired millions of strugglers who arrive in the ‘city of dreams’ with hope of making it big in the industry.

The biggest lesson or takeaway from Akshay’s glorious career is the way in which he has handled failure. For an actor with limitations and back-to-back flops in the first half of his career, Akshay has become one of the most consistent and versatile actors in the country today.

The last couple of years beginning with ‘Airlift’ last year to ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ this year, have been glorious for the actor. The post ‘Bahubali 2’ phase has seen many actors and big films fall, the only exception being Akshay’s ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ which is the only big success in the last 6 months.

The actor has also showed all-round improvement in the last two to three years. His choice of films have changed for the better, he is as fit as ever, critics like his films and the audience trust is now second only to Aamir Khan, even though he does six to eight times more films!

2018 could well be the best year of his career. The superstar has the north-south biggie ‘Robot 2.0’, followed by films like ‘Padman’, ‘Gold’ and ‘Mogul’. That’s one release every 3-4 months.

Here’s wishing Akshay Kumar a very happy 50th birthday. We hope he remains in the best of health and continues to entertain his fans for many more years.

P.S: Given the natural way he has led his life and his level of fitness, we wouldn’t be surprised if he doubles the numbers that he tweeted on his 50th birthday.



  • Happy bday akki paaji keeping fanwar aside I wish for your good health and may you continue to give successful films in future and hope your winning streak never ends once again wishing you from bottom of my heart

  • flop doesnt matter to a star when he has fans and talent to bounce back to have a long career.for example some stars have hit movies in his initial career but dissappears after 5-7 years lyk imran khan,sanjay kaapor,akhay khanna etc.

  • Happy Birthday Akshay Kumar.
    Who keeps reinventing himself from a so called wooden actor to one of the greatest entertainer of bollywood.
    Once an action hero, then a comedy king and now doing brilliant films with social input as well as some patriotic one. With 2.0 he will showcase his talent in a zoner he never tested year. Great 2016 & 2017 with biggies of them 2018 is awating. Its look like in 2018 he will replace either Salman or Aamir in top2 race. Best of luck. Stay healthy and inspiring, entertain fans and audience, stay away from controveries. Awaiting 2.0 probably biggest pan india movie of 2018 and second most awaited after TOH so far. Gold and Moghul will be great too.
    Happy Golden Jublee day.

    All da best akki …out of all his upcoming releases i m luking forward to Padman

  • He’s the fittest, one of the most hard working, the fastest movie machine, a parallel industry and completely self-made talented actor. And his fitness may not even be matched by a 25 year old. Who would believe that this man is 50?
    Happy Birthday Akshay sir!

  • Very nice tribute from you guys at Indicine… for a true Indian movie star who despite his limitations stood his ground and now we are witnessing one of independent India’s greatest success stories.
