Akshay Kumar is an Indian film actor and producer who made his debut with a minor role in the 1987 Mahesh Bhatt-directed Aaj.[1][2] He appeared as the lead actor in Saugandh (1991) before making his breakthrough starring in suspense thriller Khiladi (1992), the first film of the Khiladi series.[3][4] In the same year, he appeared in Pramod Chakravorty-produced film Deedar. In 1994, Kumar earned his first nomination for Best Actor at the Filmfare Awards for his performance in Yash Chopra-produced romance Yeh Dillagi and starred in Mohra.[5] The following year he appeared in Sabse Bada Khiladi. Kumar played a supporting role in Chopra-directed romance Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), for which he received his first nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor.[6] However, many of his later releases, including Lahu Ke Do Rang, Insaaf: The Final Justice, Daava, Tarazu, Angaaray, Barood and Zulmi performed poorly at the box office leading to a setback in his film career.[7][8][9][10][11]

Kumar's performance in the Suneel Darshan-directed crime drama Jaanwar (1999) received critical acclaim and marked his comeback.[7][12] In 2000, he starred in the Priyadarshan-directed comedy Hera Pheri and received a nomination for IIFA Best Actor Award for his role in romantic drama Dhadkan.[13] The following year Kumar played a negative role in Ajnabee, which won him the Filmfare Best Villain Award and the IIFA Award for Best Performance in a Negative Role.[2][14] In 2004, he starred in Abbas-Mustan-directed romantic thriller Aitraaz and David Dhawan-directed romantic comedy Mujhse Shaadi Karogi. His performance in the latter earned him his third nomination for supporting actor at the Filmfare Awards as well as a nomination for best comic role.[15] That year, he presented the television series Seven Deadly Arts with Akshay Kumar[16] and received a nomination for the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award for his role in action thriller Khakee. His role in the comedy Garam Masala earned him the Filmfare Award for Best Performance in a Comic Role in 2006.[2][14] In 2007, Kumar starred in four consecutive commercially successful films; romantic comedy Welcome, psychological thriller Bhool Bhulaiyaa and comedies Heyy Babyy and Namastey London.[17]

Kumar earned nominations for the Asian Film Award for Best Actor and Filmfare Best Actor Award for his performance in the comedy drama Singh Is Kinng (2008). In the same year, he founded Hari Om Entertainment production company,[18] and hosted the first season of the reality game show Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi. The following year Kumar was awarded the Padma Shri, India's fourth highest civilian award, for his services to the Indian film industry.[19][20] Kumar hosted the first season of MasterChef India in 2010. The following year he founded another production company Grazing Goat[21] and produced the Indo-Canadian hockey-based film Breakaway, which became the highest grossing cross cultural film at the Canadian box office.[22] In the same year, Kumar voiced Optimus Prime in the Hindi dub of Transformers: Dark of the Moon[23] and appeared in comedies Housefull 2 and Rowdy Rathore. The latter two films grossed over INR100 crore (US$16 million) at the box office.[24] He played the role of Lord Krishna in the Umesh Shukla-directed satirical comedy drama Oh My God (2012). The following year he starred in heist thriller Special 26 and crime drama Once Upon ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara! In 2014, he starred in action thriller Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, which became his third film to gross over INR100 crore (US$16 million) at the box office[25] and hosted the reality show Dare 2 Dance.
