It’s that point of time when I used to watch only actioners and suspense thrillers wherein my favourites were Sunny deol, Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Mithun. I was in class I, when all the girls were gossiping about Akshay and I had not seen his film yet. Kayda Kanoon was playing in a nearby video parlour and I asked my mother to give me 2 rupee so that I can catch that flick. I was impressed by his looks, dance, style and last but not the least his energy during action scenes. By that time other 2 new entrants Ajay Devgan and Sunil Shetty started their journey and even they become my favoutites. The 90s era was dominated by this trio.
There was negativity whenever their names cropped up at places even within my family and relatives. No one liked to talk about them as Shahrukh Khan was playing in everyones mind, no doubt, he brought back the romantic affairs but one should not forget Sunil Shetty’s Bhai clashed with Dil toh pagal hai and Soldier clashed with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai wherein both the films worked big time.
When I came to Mumbai for my college, the first film I saw was in New Excelsior dated 21st June 2002 Awara Pagal Deewana. The crowd greeted Akshay’s entry with seeties which I had not expected. In 2007 when he delivered 4 hit films in a row thus creating a record, he was named hit machine. Since last 5 years he has re-invented himself in such a way that made the industry superstars to sit and think. I won’t delve into his minute details just wanted to show my liking towards him. The person whom I call as my favourite bollywood actor has not only lived up to my expectations but exceeded in terms of persona, good social work, versatility, suits for any script, his respect towards his parents, a family man, daily routine that he follows is beyond imagination and so on and so forth. Oneday if this post reaches to him, he must feel good of his achievements.
