Talking about working with big directors, Akshay Kumar had recently shared in an interview: "I work with new directors because big directors don't take me. That is the truth. Let me just tell you. See, when big people don't take you, you have to start your own journey. If you don't get a job in a big publication, you will go through a smaller one. From there you jump. It is just like that. That is how you make your life. You cannot just be sitting at home and wondering why people don't take me despite me being so capable. That is what exactly happened."
Another fan shared a list of some the actor's most popular movies. The tweet reads: "Airlift , Rowdy Rathore , Hera Pheri , Bhool Bhulaiyaa , Rustom , Toilet , Baby , Housefull, OMG, Singh is Kinng, Namaste London, Bewafaa, Welcome, Aitraaz, Chandni Chowk to China, De Dana Dan, Dhadkan and a few more. My all time FAVORITE. 29 YEARS OF AKKIWOOD".
Akshay starred alongside southern actress Shanthipriya in his debut film, "Saugandh". The film was directed by Raj Sippy'.
This year, Akshay will be seen in "Sooryavanshi", "Laxmmi Bomb" and "Prithviraj".
