Akshay Kumar has been the most versatile actor throughout his career – he may be known for his comic or action roles, but now this man has again redefined himself by taking up social, realistic topics for his movies.
On his birthday today, here’s recollecting those movie which gave us a new Akshay Kumar, which we still totally love.
‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’
Even when taking the topic of love, and in the name of saving a marriage, Akshay Kumar got out the very important topic which was ignored in India since a long time – open defecation.
Akki’s Padman is about sanitary hygiene. It truly takes guts for a superstar to speak up on such looked-down-upon topics.
‘Jolly LLB 2’
This movie dealt with the corruption in the law system present in India. It dealt with the topic sensitively, yet keeping the comedy in place, where needed.
‘Baby’ and ‘Holiday’
The world of ‘Baby’ and ‘Holiday’ showed us the terrorizing effects of terrorism, and how the armed forces fight to make the world a better place to live in.
‘OMG – Oh My God!’
Playing Lord Krishna in the movie, Akshay Kumar preached not to keep blind faith, but to held Lord close to your heart, because he’s your friend, even more than a masterpiece.
Here’s wishing Akshay Kumar a very happy birthday!
