Akshay Kumar was always meant to be an action hero. Many, many years ago when Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia wasn’t the ‘Akshay Kumar’ that we know today, he was training in martial arts.
After getting a black belt in Taekwondo during his days in India, Akshay Kumar took off to Bangkok, Thailand to study Muay Thai, a Thai combat sport. On returning to Mumbai, Akshay Kumar began training students in martial arts.
From there, Akshay took to modelling and finally after working as a background dancer in films, he stepped into Bollywood in a full-fledged hero’s role in the 1992 film Deedar though it was Saugandh that released before this film.
Now, a little more than an hour ago, Akshay Kumar took to Twitter to share a video of himself fighting a martial artist on a stage. The video shows a young Akshay throwing punches and kicks with ferocious dexterity and one cannot help but wonder when will Akshay show such moves on the big screen again.
On the work front, Akshay Kumar will soon be seen in a cameo role in Naam Shabana starring Taapsee Pannu. Directed by Shivam Nair, Naam Shabana is the prequel to the 2015 film Baby.
