Akshay saw a lot of rejections and days of anonymity. His first screen appearance was an uncredited martial art instructor in Mahesh Bhatt’s Aaj in 1987.

Then after his initial few flops, he got his break with Abbas Mastaan’s Khiladi which launched him with the screen name Akshay Kumar.

The Khiladi films went on to make eight films with the last on being Khiladi 786 in 2012. Akshay worked for as many as 15 films in a year while doing his own stunts in many of them and most of them turning out to be a blockbuster.
