Akshay Kumar, who had made his big Bollywood debut with the 1991 release Saugandh, has done over 100 movies in his career of three decades so far. And while he had established himself as an action hero initially, Akshay is now an all-rounder and is known as the man with the Midas touch. Although the COVID 19 pandemic has taken a massive toll on the entertainment industry, the Kesari star does have some interesting movies lined up. However, talking about the year 2020 and the time before that, Akshay has managed to be on the Forbes list of highest-paid male actors for the fifth consecutive year. Interestingly, he has been the only Indian star to make it to the Forbes top 100 celebs list for two consecutive years. As per Forbes, Akshay net worth as recorded in 2020 was USD 48.5 million.

A Filmy Love Story

Twinkle, during her appearance of Koffee With Karan, had stated that her relationship with Akshay had started as a fling and later culminated into marriage. “There he was, six feet of chocolate ice cream. So, I decided that I am going to have a fling with him and it is going to last for 15 days (the length of their outdoor schedule). That was my plan. I ran out of books in Calgary, there was no TV and I was really bored. And there he was. It was kind of perfect”. And while Akshay and Twinkle managed to stick around with each other, their marriage wasn’t a cakewalk either. Interestingly, Twinkle had put forth a condition to marry Akshay if her 2000 release Mela failed at the box office and it did. Quipping about the same, Akshay said, “She was very confident about Mela and said that if the film didn’t work, she would get married. Fortunately for me, Mela flopped, and we got married”.

Business ventures
