8 performances of Akshay Kumar that should have won an award

There’s a popular phrase that goes, ‘Awards and stardom go hand in hand’. But it doesn’t seem to be the case when it comes to our B-Town’s Khiladi, actor Akshay Kumar. After working hard for more than 25 years in the film industry, the actor has achieved stardom but missed out on major accolades for his performances. The year 2017 started on a similar note when the credibility of a few popular Bollywood awards was questioned after Akshay’s name was missing (from the nominations) despite delivering two strong performances in ‘Airlift’ and ‘Rustom’ in 2016. As the actor himself believes more in ‘rewards’ and ‘audience acceptance’ than ‘awards’, he is now looking forward to the first release of this year, ‘Jolly LL.B 2’.

Looking at both the trailers of this movie, many of his fans and moviegoers are already predicting that finally he may pick the award for Best Actor for this satirical black comedy-drama film. Also it has been heard from sources that the people who have read the script of this film are sure that Akshay might win the prestigious National Film Award for it. And we do not hold a doubt on this either.

So, as we wait for a couple of days more to see whether Akshay finally hits the bull’s eye delivering an award-winning performance as lawyer Jolly Mishra, we list down eight performances of the ‘Khiladi’ star that should have won him an award that he truly deserved.
