Welcome to Youth Motivator. I would like to tell you the success story of  Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia, popularly known as Akshay Kumar, a well-known Bollywood superstar.
This article is the biography of Akshay Kumar.
He was born on born 9 September 1967 in Amristar, Punjab. Currently, his net worth is over $150 million. He acted in over 132 films.

Akshay Kumar  grew up in Delhi but later shifted to Mumbai. His father Hari Om Bhatia was an Army officer.
Since, his childhood Akshay Kumar had a passion about acting and dancing.
He dropped out of college as he was not interested in studies and later went to Bangkok to learn martial arts. He was helped by his father, who loaned him around 8000 rupees.

As his father was also a wrestler apart from being an army officer representing the state of Punjab, he was in high spirits to participate in any sport; also Akshay was a fan of Bruce Lee.
He later gained Black Belt in Taekwondo.

In Bangkok, he also worked as a waiter, chef in a restaurant and boxer.
For livelihood, Akshay also did many odd jobs like selling jewelry in Mumbai, he used to buy jewellery in New Delhi and sell it in Mumbai for a profit. He earned about 6000 rupees from selling jewellery, by which he bought some items in Mumbai and was going by train to sell them in Delhi, but unfortunately, his items got stolen in the train.
 He also worked as a chef in Bangladesh, sold greeting cards, and worked as a travel agent in Kolkata for making a living in his initial days. He decided to do any work for living, as for him no work was too small and no work was too big. He says that talent attracts talent and so money attracts money, so if you have talent, you will definitely get recognized.

Then, he returned to Mumbai where he began to teach martial arts.
He was suggested to try modelling by one of his marital art student’s father. Then, Akshay tested his luck in the modelling and then he earned a handsome amount of money in modelling.
 By doing modelling for two days, he earned so much money which he was not able to earn for even one month of teaching martial arts. So, he focused on modelling, where he used to act in advertisements. He was also acting as a background dancer for movies.

The turning point of his life-

One day, he was to go for a modelling assignment in Bangalore. He was sent plane tickets, the time was 6 AM, but Akshay thought it as 6 PM, as a result he missed the plane. He received taunting for missing the flight and being unprofessional and as a result, he missed a big modelling project, so Akshay was very gloomy and was on brink of crying.
But it proved to be his day, when he went to Natraj Studio, he met a make-up artist by name Narendra, who took his portforlio to Pramod Chakravorty.
 Luckily Pramod Chakravorty sensed his potential and signed him for a film and handed over him a sum of 5000 rupees and signed him for his three upcoming films.

To improve his acting skills he joined an acting school. He also learnt dance from Asha Chandra Dance Academy.
 In his initial days, he wished to establish a martial arts school or join Army or Navy, but life had other plans for him, that is to make him a Bollywood superstar.
 So, this proves that whatever happens in our life happens only for good.
If Akshay would have boarded the flight, today he would be just a martial arts trainer, but now he rose to become a superstar.

How Rajiv changed to Akshay?

Then, he acted in a film by name Aaj, in which his role was only for a very small duration of seven seconds. In the movie Aaj, the hero’s name was Akshay, Rajiv liked the name Akshay, so he changed his name to Akshay.
So his first film in which he was a lead actor was Saugandh, which was released in the year 1991.

His film Khiladi was a blockbuster, in which he proved himself as an action hero. He never left practising martial arts; this helped him for his role as action hero.


During his initial days, Akshay Kumar was participating in a photo shoot near a wall, but unfortunately, he was forced to leave, later when he settled well he bought a big house in that same location.
 Later he opened his own production company by name Hari Om Entertainment, which was named after his father. And Akshay also acted in many reality shows like - Dare 2 Dance, India’s Got Talent.
The popular films of Akshay Kumar are Jolly LLB 2, Rustom, Airlift, Baby, etc.
He is one of the rare actors, who with his hard work, honest and dedication became a superstar without any god father and background support.

Achievements of Akshay Kumar-

He was awarded with Padma Shri, in the year 2009.
National Film Award for Best Actor in the year 2017.

His suggestions-

He wishes that each and every child must specialize in at least one sport, so that the country becomes free from drugs, as in sports majority of energy is invested by youngsters. And also the country can win in sports events.

He is a living example to prove that one can achieve his dreams through smart and hard work and dedication.
