Box Office King ‘Akshay Kumar’
Akshay Kumar is one of the most popular superstars in India and has a huge fan following across the globe. He is known as the busiest actor in Bollywood and also the king of the box office. Usually, he does 3-4 movies in a year and adds a whopping amount to his account. Some say he is the only one who can compete with Khans, while some say, one day he will have a clash with himself.
In the year 2015, he was at the 9th position among the world’s highest-paid actors as per the list compiled by Forbes Magazine. Despite brilliant performances, this versatile actor rarely gets awards. But in the year 2014, he won the title ‘Box Office 1000 Crore Hero’ in Star Box Office India Awards.
