Akshay Kumar, who is riding high on the success of Airlift, credits his fans for making an actor a “star”.

“What I have understood with these many years in the industry is that an actor is a star because of his (or her) fans and should do anything in power to entertain viewers,” Akshay said in a statement.

Akshay added that when he joined the Hindi film fraternity, he “didn’t have much of a choice. “All I was ever really good at was stunts as I had to make my mark. That was what I focused on the most. There was a time when I delivered 14 flops in a row. I was down in the dumps, and suddenly the 15th film worked and then there were 16 films which were box office hits,” he said.

The actor feels great to know the audience love the movies. “There is lot of hard work put in by a lot of people to make the movie and bring it to audiences. I like doing film which offer wholesome entertainment to the entire family, and the ‘Singh’ series is a perfect blend of comedy, romance, action and a lot of masti.”



  1. I don’t think Airlift is collecting only because of Akki Sir.
    It’s only for its content & WOM.
    because it opened with 12 Cr with a Clash from 3000+ screens.
    It is showing his FAN following.

    Most of the people who are watching Airlift are not Akki Sir but They are Airlift FAN.

  2. Akshay is d best. A true indian. Srk thinks bollywood is his patternal property. Jo v karega chal jayega. True star is akki and bajrangi bhaijaan. I think u ve not ur right state of mind. Its only for akki airlift is going smoothly.
