Akshay Kumar, the original Khiladi of Bollywood, is or rather was, quite the player! Before he met and fell in love with Twinkle Khanna, the man was a very different person. From being a very adorably notorious child to being one of the most good looking hunks in Bollywood, Akshay Kumar has done and been through a lot in life. Check out these unknown facts about the Khiladi of Bollywood here!

1. The real name 

Did you know Akshay Kumar’s birth name was not really the name he goes by now? When he was born, he was named Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia and only changed his name when he entered the Bollywood industry. In fact, people close to him still call him Raju and not Akshay!

2. Won a Filmfare Award only TWICE 

While all the other actors around him won more than one award for the best actor, Akshay Kumar has only won the Filmfare Award for the Best Actor twice in his career. The first time was for his brilliant performance as the Best Actor in a Negative Role in Ajnabee and the second time was for his amazing performance as the Best Actor in a Comic Role in Garam Masala.

3. The name Khiladi was NOT an accident 

While Akshay Kumar’s competition were called King Khan and Badshah, the name Khiladi did not come to this particular dude by accident. It was only after he worked in eight films (Khiladi. Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Sabse Bada Khiladi, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, International Khiladi, Mr. and Mrs. Khiladi, Khiladi 420 and Khiladi 786) with the name in the title did it stick to him and become his pseudonym of sorts!

4. Stole watches for fun 

While a lot of people have pet peeves, not many are open about their trysts with the law. Akshay Kumar, on the other hand, is someone who just does not care. The man has admitted to stealing watches from shopping malls when he was younger just to get the kick out of stealing things and getting away with the crime! Sticky fingers much?

5. Not an Indian citizen 

Just when you thought Akshay Kumar’s life could not get more interesting, it did. The Khiladi of Bollywood got himself a Canadian citizenship. However, with the Indian law being the way it is, he could not hold more than one citizenship at a time. Breaking the hearts of his Indian fans with one swift blow, he let go of the citizenship of the country he was born in and is now a full time citizen of Canada.

6. Played the same named character 8 times

If you think names like Raj and Vijay were only associated with characters played by Amitabh Bachchan or Shah Rukh Khan, think again! Did you know Akshay Kumar has played characters with the name Vijay 8 times and the name Raj 7 times on the silver screen? Who would have thought, right?

7. He played the role of a cop 13 times

Although Akshay Kumar has been typecast as the ultimate lover boy on screen, his real talent as an actor lies in the characters he played as a cop! Just like his on screen dad Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar has played this particular character over ten times in films like Kayda Kanoon, Mohra, Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Paandav, Sabse Bada Khiladi, Tu Chor Main Sipahi, Insaaf, Daava, Tarazu, Angaaray, Meri Biwi Ka Jawab Nahi, Khakee, Police Force: An Inside Story and Aan: Men at Work.

Akshay Kumar is quite the character and more than certainly stands apart from the other contemporaries of Bollywood. If you think we missed out on any facts about Akshay Kumar, comment and let us know!

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan: A Beautiful And Fun Movie That Addresses Homosexuality

Published

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan,Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Beautiful And Fun Movie,Mango Bollywood,Ayushmann Khurrana,Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Movie,Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Story,Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Review,Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Movie Rating,SMZS Movie Review

Rating: 4/5

Cast: Ayushmann Khurrana, Jitendra Kumar, Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta

Director: Hitesh Kewalya

Story:

The movie aims to address the deep rooted stigma in India  around homosexuality. Although homosexuality in India is decriminalised, people from the LGBT community find it hard to gain acceptance from family and society.  Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is the story of Aman Tripathi (Jitendra Kumar) and Kartik Singh (Ayushmann Khurrana,) a gay couple who reveal their orientation to Jitendra’s parents much to their chagrin and shock.  The rest of the story is about how Jitendra’s parents finally accept his choice to love Kartik.

Review:

The movie is set in Allahabad, where the Tripathi family stays.  Kartik and Aman visit Allahabad for Aman’s sister Goggle’s wedding.  The Tripathi family is taken aback by Aman’s choice for a romantic partner when he decides to display his love for Kartik at the wedding infront of all the guests.  Ayushmann Khurrana once again shines in the role of Kartik, a guy who was abused by his father during his childhood. Ayushmann and Jitendra Kumar, both of them subtly take the topic of homosexuality and break down the stigma surrounding it for the movie audience so they understand the trouble and pain a homosexual couple go through to find acceptance.

Director Hitesh Kewalya takes meticulous care to build up individual character arcs without affecting the pace of the movie and ties it up beautifully in the end.  Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao provide excellent supporting roles as the mother and father of Aman Tripathi, portraying the mentality of a small town family.

The entire movie is a family entertainer till the climax, which appears to be  rushed in order for the movie to reach a happy conclusion. The climax however does not take away the credit from the rest of the film which is beautifully told with some amazing acting talent.
