Once there he lived with his uncle. His uncle got him job at Metro Guest House where his first salary was, just Rs 1,500. He studied martial arts in Bangkok while working as a chef.
Akki even worked in Kolkata for a travel agency for a year and a half. At this time one of his friends suggested modeling. Although he must have laughed at the very word for the first time, he surely gave a thought...his first salary for modeling is Rs 4000. After his successful start as a model, he changed his name from Rajeev Om Bhatia to Akshay Kumar.
After modeling, a friend suggested to akshay should join films.
Since Akki family was not connected with films and he did not know anyone from the industry, Akki became an assistant to Jayesh Sheth in order to meet people from the profession.
After working with him for eight months, instead of remuneration he ask him to shoot his portfolio.
But whenever he went back, he would be told that the photos had been misplaced.So he made giant sized prints. At least no one could say they had been displaced!
The large prints worked in Akshay favour and he immediately got his first film. Although he had to struggle for survival before he entered films, He fortunately didn´t have to struggle much for film role.
Akshay will never forget "Khiladi" because it was his first hit. Like everything else in his life, "Khiladi" own his own.
"In Akshay words - I remember one incident that took place after the film was released.
A beggar came up to my car at the traffic signal, tapped on the window and ask for ten rupees. "Why ten rupees?" I ask him. He said: Sir, aapki picture dekhni hai" (comment of the writer: Sir, I want to watch your movie). I liked his style of begging! So I gave him fifteen rupees and told him to eat "samosas" in the interval too."
Akshay Kumar's personal life has provided more than enough grist for the gossip mills. He has been in news for his numerous dates with co-stars like Raveena Tandon, Shilpa Shetty, Pooja Batra and even Priyanka Chopra. Whether his love affair is a true story or not is a mystery to the common man. However his married
life seems to be a fairy tale, where every one is seen smiling. After being engaged to actress Twinkle Khanna, the daughter of veteran actors Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia, they married on January 14, 2001. Their son named Araav was born on September 15, 2002.
In Akshay Words - From success and failure I have learnt a lot. Today, the most important people in my life are my parents. Over the years I have learnt that friends come and go. Only your parents & Family love you unconditional.
