India is known for star studded film industry called Bollywood . Although, there are various talented actors excelling in action, romantic or drama movies, Akshay Kumar has a special place in comedy roles. He has been in the industry for almost three decades doing all kinds of roles, but since last 10 years he has made a name for himself in the comedy circle. I became his diehard fan after watching the movie “Singh is king.” It is one of those movies which can be seen again and again without getting bored. Apart from having an excellent sense of humor, he is a complete disciplinarian as far as his lifestyle and physical fitness is concerned. Millions of young men and women have gained inspiration from his strict exercise regime and teetotaler habits. He has a huge fan following because of his contributions to charity of soldiers of my country. Being a black belt in martial arts, he does all his action stunts on his own which has made him a youth icon. It won’t be wrong to say that he’s a multitalented personality and his movies are a complete entertainment package. (198 Words)
