Mumbai, May 4 Completing 30 years in Bollywood with great success, Akshay Kumar seems to be in no mood to stop as he strides forward to greater heights.
Yash Raj Films celebrated the three decades-long milestone of his career in the film industry by sharing a video in which the actor can be seen unveiling a digital poster of ‘Prithviraj’ (his next movie).
The poster features posters of every single film that Akshay has been a part of.
YRF captioned the video as “Celebrating @akshaykumar and his 30 years of incredible cinema! Watch the unveiling video NOW! Celebrate Samrat #Prithviraj Chauhan with #YRF50 only at a theatre near you on 3rd June.”
In the video, Akshay is heard saying, “It didn’t even cross my mind that this activity is happening to celebrate my 30 years in cinema. It’s fascinating that 30 years have passed since my first film ‘Saugandh!’ The first shot of my film career was at Ooty and it was an action shot! Thank you very much for this gesture. This is really special.”
Reposting the video, Akshay Kumar tweeted “30 years of cinema, a lifetime filled with your love! Thank you for this amazing journey and thank you @yrf for piecing it together so beautifully with #Prithviraj, releasing in cinemas on 3rd June.”
The actor will currently be seen donning the mantle of the gallant and heroic Rajput emperor Privthviraj Chauhan of the Chahamana dynasty or the Chauhans of Ajmer in Rajasthan in his latest film, the Chandraprakash Dwivedi directorial “Prithviraj”.
The emperor is a historically renowned and legendary figure in India who defeated the Islamic tyrant Mohammad Ghori of the Ghurid dynasty in 1191 but lost to him a year later in 1192 when Ghori returned with Turkish archers — which is seen as a landmark to the rise of Islamic reign in India.
Akshay Kumar started acting in 1987 with Mahesh Bhatt’s “Aaj” and had his first lead role in 1991 in the film “Saugandh”. He most recently appeared in the film “Bachchan Pandey” and will star in “Raksha Bandhan”, “Ram Setu”, “Mission Cinderella”, “OMG 2” and “Selfiee”.
