EXCLUSIVE: Akshay Kumar gets emotional about the lowest phase of his career and how he deals with failure
Akshay Kumar has seen the biggest highs and the most terrible lows in his career but the superstar has battled all of them with consummate ease. Here, he discusses what kept him going during his toughest times.
Akshay Kumar is undoubtedly one of the biggest superstars we have in Bollywood today. Also, the only Indian actor to be in the Forbes List of Highest Paid Actors this year. But the Khiladi too has gone through several ups and downs in his career. But each time, he's bounced back and how.
Recently, when we caught up with the team of Mission Mangal for interviews, we asked Akki how he manages to deal with failure. Talking about it, he told us, "I will tell you a few incidents. And it has happened many times. I have seen the lowest phases. I have gone through ups and downs at least three four times in my career which is a lot for any actor."
He further continued, "But every time I have gone through it, I just do one thing - I go down my building and see how many cars I have. Then, I look at my house, sometimes I go to my office and look at everything. Kyun ro raha hoon main? Fayda kya hai? God has been so kind so I don't think I have the right to feel even a little low because there are so many people who have nothing. If I start thinking like this, then I would be the most selfish person ever."
Although he's been ranked as the highest paid Bollywood actor today, he reveals that he had nothing when he started off. "I didn't even have 200 rupees in my pocket when I started off in this industry. Today, I have a lot," he laughed. But his journey has been nothing short of inspirational, to say the least.
