Who doesn’t know Akshay Kumar? Action hero, comic genius and actor par excellence, Akki is a legend in his own right. From action blockbusters to wooing the leading ladies of B Town, he’s had a meteoric rise to stardom. But Akshay also managed to do something most Bollywood heroes haven’t- he’s worked with some of the best names in entertainment around the globe. Here’s a few times when AK went worldwide:
Kylie Minogue in Chiggy Wiggy:
Akshay was the first Bollywood star to get grooving with the gorgeous Kylie Minogue in the song Chiggy Wiggy, in Blue. Although the film sank (pun unintended!), the song scorched dance floors across the world!
Snoop Dogg for Singh is Kinng:
Fusing hip-hop and bhangra, Akki did the unthinkable – he got Snoop Dogg to do the balle-balle with him, in Singh is Kinng, and that too wearing a pagdi! #DesiSwag
Denise Richards and Sylvester Stallone in Kambakkht Ishq:
What happens when you have Denise Richards, Sylvester “Rocky” Stallone and AK in the same frame? The screen explodes obviously! #TwoMuchMuscle
Andrew Symonds in Patiala House:
For his cricket based drama, Patiala House, Akshay bowled us all over. He roped in Andrew Symonds and what’s more is that Symonds became a fan of our very own Khiladi’s brilliant bowling! #KhiladiyonKaKhiladiForReal
The Undertaker in Khiladiyon ka Khiladi:
As if battling baddies on screen wasn`t enough, Akki took it a step further, and filmed a full fight sequence with the dreaded Undertaker from WWE! #DesiDaredevil
So there you have it, proof that Khiladi Kumar is much more than just flying fists and high kicks, he’s truly a global phenomenon! Akki’s next release is Baby, where he will play an Indian spy, which hits theatres on 23rd January! Catch it at a theatre near you!
