He has proved himself to be the talented artist in the Bollywood and there are few films which justify this statement. Based on this context “6 Amazing Roles of Akshay Kumar that makes all of us proud” shall be our today’s discussion. So let’s see what are those.
Navy officer in Rustom
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar won the best actor award for his portrayal of a patriotic naval officer in “Rustom”. And it came after over two decades being a part of Hindi film industry. Rustom was a crime-drama loosely based on the famous Nanavati case of the 50s’ that brought an end to the jury system in India. Akshay portrayed the role of Naval Officer Rustom Pavri who shot his wife’s lover and later, during a long-drawn court battle, revealed how the culprit had hatched a plan which could threaten national security. But Akshay played his part superbly and yes he truly deserves the award.
Businessman in Airlift
Akshay played an NRI Businessman named as Ranjit Katiyal, who leads a happy and successful life in Kuwait with his family. However, when Iraq invades Kuwait, he decides to risk his life to save his stranded countrymen. Indeed Airlift was a very special and excellent film of basic human nature or rather basic human trait of helping others in trouble even if you are in trouble, the victory of fighting out together rather than being selfish to sort own problems only. Hence Akshay Kumar’s role should definitely inspire the youngsters to do something great in life.
Officer Ajay in Baby
An elite counter-intelligence team of the Indian Intelligence system perpetually strives to detect and eliminate terrorists and their plots. Officer Ajay leads a team to destroy one such potentially lethal operation and prevent them from striking at the heart of India. While the common Indian fights for everyday issues, there are deeper and bigger and threats to him and his family that he will never know exists because it is the men and women in uniform that safeguard them. The men and women who put country before self, the men and women define history because they give a damn! Ajay is one such officer whom we were talking about earlier. As a true Indian patriot, he fought with all the odds and succeeded in suppressing terrorists and their plans.
An army officer in Holiday
Akshay Kumar gave a marvelous performance in this film and his role as an army officer truly inspires us because till his last breath he fought for his motherland against the terrorists and luckily he survived even. He plays as Virat, a solider, accidentally bumps into a terrorist who plans to rip apart Mumbai with a series of blasts. Virat gathers his team and it is up to him to save Mumbai from terrorists. Akshay Kumar over here represents the army and this film finely brings out the superiority of Indian Army.
As a CBI officer in Special 26
Based on real life incidents that occurred in 1987-88, the storyline revolves around a group of con artists led by Akshay Kumar(Ajay in the film) who pulled off many clever robberies during 1980s, and robbed famous businessmen and politicians by pretending to be the CBI or Income tax officers and conducting raids. On the pretext of conducting raids, they would take away all the black money hoarded by them. At the end, CBI was after them and even planned to capture them red handed but Akshay Kumar cleverly picked up 26 candidates and fooled the real CBI officers. Actually, it was a decoy and real CBI officers were of the view that the raid would be carried out with the help of those 26 candidates. But this is not the case, Akshay cleverly led his raid in the workshop of the gold jewelry shop which was intended to be raided originally and escaped from the country. Those stranded 26 candidates kept on waiting for their senior officers to give the order. Really what a raid!
Lawyer in Jolly LLB2
In this blockbuster Kumar played his part as a lawyer who hoodwinked a lady to start his own law firm. However, he feels guilty when he finds out that she committed suicide and her husband was a victim of injustice and tries to make things right. Things went from bad to worse as Judge orders temporary suspension of Jolly’s(Akshay) license as a lawyer, but later he got his license back with only 4 days in hand to prove himself correct. Then he fought extensively but his counterpart was in no mood to give away the battle to Jolly’s hands. Finally, we see jolly bringing a Hindu Brahmin Pandit and claims that he is the real terrorist. Relentlessly jolly went on asking questions about Hindu Vedas, but Pandit was wise and with confidence, he was answering all the questions. But luckily the Pandit broke down and committed that he’s the real terrorist and Jolly won the case. The film ends with jolly walking out of the court room along with his family and everyone praising him. At the end, his speech was really motivating and thus he justified his role as a lawyer as well as pulling out an exceptional case win.
