He maybe the Khiladiyon ka Khiladi but his remarkable comic talent is no secret. However, before the superstar set foot into the realms of comedy, he was typecast as an actor who could only do action roles. But Akshay Kumar proved everyone wrong, and how! As his career progressed, he went on to appear in a series of hilariously insane roles that left the audience in splits. Seriously, who would have thought that this alpha male of Bollywood could pull off comic roles with such ease? In fact today, we can say Akshay pioneered the idea of action-comedy in Bollywood. 😛
Haven’t seen any of his comedy films? Here’s his best 5 so far that will definitely make you laugh out loud.
‘Ayee Raju!‘ Akshay’s role as a young fella who wants to get rich quick tops our comedy list. Remember the ‘Golmaal Hai Bhai Sab Golmaal Hai‘ scene? If you’ve watched it, I’m sure you’re smiling right now.
After Hera Pheri, there was no stopping the Khiladi turned Comedy King! He appeared in numerous roles and struck the right chord again with Heyy Babyy. The scenes where he makes his ex-lover meet suitors for marriage are hilarious.
If Vidya Balan gave us the creeps as Manjulika, Akshay Kumar literally made us fall off the seats as the ghost-hunting psychiatrist. From the moment he appears on screen to the last scene, we bet you won’t stop laughing.
Om Shanti Om (Cameo role):
Though it was just a two-minute cameo, Akshay nailed it with his bang-on comic timing. Check it out in the video below:
Singh Is Kinng:
How can we forget Happy Singh, the naive and good-for-nothing chirpy fellow who goes on a trip to Australia. Akshay’s shenanigans were so funny that people are already excited for the sequel Singh Is Bling!
Here’s wishing the star a very Happy Birthday! 😀
