Akshay Kumar decided to try his luck in acting on the insistence of his friends. He received an offer from Raj Sippy to act in his film Saugandh (1991), which couldn’t do well in the box office, after working for a few modeling assignments. It was the thriller’ Khiladi’ of Abbas-Mustan that made him a star.
He has performed mainly in thrillers and action films such as Main Khiladi Tu Anari (1993), Elaan (1994), Mohra (1994), Sabse Bada Khiladi (1995) and Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi (1996). He even made a couple of romantic movies like Yeh Dillagi (1994), Dhadkan (2000) and Andaaz (2003).

He became the first choice for comedy directors like Awara Paagal Deewana (2002), Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004), Garam Masala (2005) and Phir Hera Pheri.

His recent release at the box office, Namastey London (2007), was quite good.
