Akshay Kumar Net Worth Revealed

Akshay Kumar is an Indian film actor and producer who has a net worth of $150 million. He has acquired his net worth by appearing in more than 100 Hindi films. Although he has been nominated for Filmfare Awards multiple times, he has managed to win it only twice in his career. During the initial stage of his film career, Akshay featured in action films only and was very popular for his appearances in the ‘Khiladi’ series. He has also starred in a number of action films such as Mohra (1994), Suhaag (1994), Angaaray (1998), Sangharsh (1999) etc. 

In the early 2000s he decided to shed the image of an action star and opted for comic and romantic roles. His performances in Dhadkan (2000) and Namastey London (2007) convinced the critics of his acting ability and people started accepting him as the new romantic hero of Bollywood. His comic timing in films like Hera Pheri (2000), Garam Masala (2005) & Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007) was well appreciated by the audience. 2007 was a golden year for Akshay as he delivered 4 consecutive commercial hits at the box office. In February 2013 the media reports suggested that the total box office collection of his films crossed $330 million making him the only Bollywood actor to achieve this. 

Akshay Kumar has performed a number of dangerous stunts in his film career earning the nickname of ‘Indian Jackie Chan’ in the process. In 2009 he founded a production company and in the same year he was awarded the Padma Shri by the Government of India. Akshay Kumar was also honoured in the 2011 Asian Awards for his long standing contribution to Indian cinema. He married Twinkle Khanna in 2001 who also happened to be his co-star in 2 of his films in 1999. They have 2 children.
