Indian superstar Akshay Kumar's journey - One of grit and triumph

Akshay Kumar's real-life journey is a quintessential tale of the triumph of the human spirit. From his humble beginnings to becoming one of the biggest superstars of the Indian film industry, his story is an inspiration to millions. It's important to note that the actor's path to success was not paved with ease but marked by relentless hard work, perseverance, and an unwavering belief in his abilities. His rise from a martial arts instructor to a global icon, even today, epitomizes the essence of defying odds to carve one’s destiny.
Akshay's early life was a blend of struggle and determination. After obtaining a black belt in Taekwondo in India, he ventured to Bangkok, Thailand, where he learned Muay Thai and worked as a chef and waiter. His journey continued through various jobs in Kolkata, Dhaka, and Delhi, including working at a travel agency, a hotel, and selling jewelry. These experiences not only tested his resilience but also fueled his dream of achieving something greater. Returning to Bombay, he began teaching martial arts, a decision that would inadvertently steer him towards his true calling.
Kumar's foray into modeling came through a serendipitous recommendation by a student's father, a model coordinator. He toiled as an unpaid assistant to a photographer for 18 months, crafted his first portfolio, and even worked as a background dancer in films. Later, his breakthrough came with the 1992 suspense thriller "Khiladi," directed by Abbas-Mustan. Akshay Kumar’s impressive screen presence and ease in the lead role caught the industry's attention, marking the beginning of an illustrious career with no looking back.
Over the past 33 years, Akshay Kumar has showcased an incredible range of talent, from action films like the "Khiladi" franchise and Mohra, comedic classics like "Hera Pheri" and "Singh is Kinng" to poignant dramas such as "Airlift," "OMG", "Padman," and "Mission Mangal." His discipline, hard work, and endless rigor have become legendary, inspiring countless fans across the globe.
Akshay Kumar's ability to adapt and excel in diverse roles highlights his dedication to his craft and his constant drive to stay relevant. His journey from a common man with big dreams to a celebrated superstar for over 3 decades is a powerful testament to the human spirit’s capacity to overcome adversity and achieve greatness.

It’s been quite a roller coaster ride in these 30 years: Palash Dutta on his Bollywood journey

Actor, writer, and producer Palash Dutta, who has produced the award-winning short-film Thanks Mom, says this is his 30th year in the industry. He started as a model in 1994, and in 1996, he accidentally got into casting work, but he admits that it has been an interesting journey.“For the past 26 years, I've been casting and coordinating talent for ad films, web series, and films. I've also been doing theatre for 24 years, performing English plays and traveling globally for these performances. From 1994 to 2024, it's been nearly three decades in the industry, and it's been quite a roller coaster ride,” he said.
He pointed out that the industry was quite different when he started out. He added, “We knew most of the industry people, and it was easier to approach directors and producers. You could go to an office, get an appointment, and meet them. Now, things have changed. It's much harder to meet directors personally. Even if you know them, there's a system to follow. You have to go through casting directors who will test and audition you.”
He further said, “Earlier, only hero and heroine roles had managers, but character actors got work through managers and agents too. However, it was still difficult to get work because there were fewer mediums—only television, feature films, TV commercials, and Doordarshan. There was no social media or Internet.”
Palash believes that the industry has changed significantly, both for better and for worse. “On the positive side, there are many new content platforms now, like social media and Instagram, providing more opportunities for actors to earn money. Unlike when I started, there are more mediums available now. Although the supply of actors has increased, so has the demand, leading to stiff competition,” he said.
“In the past, actors had a good shelf life, lasting 10–12 years. Nowadays, there’s a high turnover of actors, with hundreds coming to Bombay daily to pursue acting and modeling,” he added.He mentioned that today everyone wants to be an actor because of the glitz and glamour of the Bollywood industry, however, not many are aware of the reality. “The reality is much darker. It's challenging for actors to survive and sustain themselves because their shelf life is very limited.An actor might have work today, but not tomorrow. Even if a show is a hit, it doesn’t guarantee more offers,” he said.
“I advice new actors to have a backup plan because it's difficult to sustain oneself solely through acting. There's no guarantee of an acting career. One day you could be at the top, and the next, you might fall. It also depends on what medium the actors are targeting—television, theater, or OTT platforms. Some actors have done theatre for years and now find good work in the OTT space, avoiding television because of its regressive nature. They prefer quality work in films, theatre, and OTT platforms, horning their skills and finding contentment in their craft,” he ended.

Sanjay Mishra and Vineet Kumar rescued Rohitashv Gour!

In the ever-glamorous world of Bollywood, moments of true heroism often occur behind the scenes. Such was the case for Rohitashv Gour, widely known for his portrayal of Manmohan Tiwari in &TV's popular show Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai. Gour recently shared a harrowing experience from the early days of his career, highlighting the lifesaving actions of his close friends and esteemed actors, Sanjay Mishra and Vineet Kumar. Reflecting on the incident, Rohitashv Gour recounted, "It was the 1990s, and Sanjay, Vineet, and I were sharing a rented apartment in Santacruz, Mumbai, close to the airport. One sweltering summer night, we decided to sleep on the terrace due to ongoing birthday party of landlord’s son and seeking relief from the heat, unaware of a water spill from the tank above. Despite the constant noise from airplanes, we eventually fell asleep. The next morning, I woke up to a terrifying reality. I could barely move. Sensing something was wrong, Sanjay and Vineet sprang into action without hesitation. They struggled to help me stand and walk, but their determination was unwavering. They managed to get me to the hospital just in time. The doctor said that my spine had been exposed to the water throughout the night, leading to my near-paralyzed state. And if my friends had not acted so quickly, I could have suffered a severe injury. It was a terrifying experience, but I was grateful for Sanjay and Vineet’s quick actions and unwavering support. The actor adds further, "Following the incident, I faced a long and painful recovery, decided to leave Mumbai and return to my hometown, where I spent several months on bed rest. Once I regained my strength, I joined the National School of Drama Repertory Company in Delhi, dedicating six years to honing the craft before returning to Mumbai in 1997 to restart my journey. That experience left an indelible mark on me. What Sanjay and Vineet did for me during that difficult time is a memory I will forever be thankful for. I truly admire and appreciate them from the bottom of my heart. In an industry often dominated by stories of rivalry and competition, this tale of friendship and heroism serves as a reminder of the deep bonds that can form amidst the glittering lights of the entertainment industry."Keep watching Rohitashv Gour as Manmohan Tiwari in Bhabiji Ghar par Hai at 10:30 pm, airing every Monday to Friday only on &TV!

I have done maximum number of lead and centralised roles on television, in spite of being very choosy and refusing more than what I accepted. I was busy doing two shifts a day and what mattered the most was the choice of roles to me, at that time,” adds Seema, who has been part of Trikaal, Yug, Betaal Pachisi, Gul Sanobar, Inteqaam, Vilayti Babu, Miss India, Chandini, Apradh, Airhostess, Hum Hain Anari, Nagin, Saath-saath, Hum Saath Aath Hain, Gharwali- Uparwali and Hasi Toh Phasi.

It’s actually not easy to be a TV actor: Saarvie Omana

Saarvie Omana, who is currently seen playing Meera in the show Pyar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan, is proud to be a TV actor. She admits that people label TV actors so much that they can’t even try for movies or web because they think we TV actors do more drama.“They don't understand that without any rehearsal, or practice, we shoot our scenes. We get the script on the spot many times, and we have to prepare it on the spot, keeping everything in mind, like the emotions of the scene and the actor itself, to remember the lines so that we don't forget or fumble in between the shots, to keep the body language, to convey the exact feel of the scene that the writer has written for the character, etc. So it's actually not easy to be a TV actor; not everyone can do it,” she said.
“I just want to say that if we can perform the scene in one go, then for sure we can perform very well if we get a chance to act in web or movies because there we will practice and polish one scene for months. So just imagine we can perform so well in an on-the-spot given script; then what magic can we create if we perform after months of practice? Because practice makes man perfect, right? I just want to say that an actor is an actor; no one should label them. One has to start somewhere, and if we started with TV, that doesn't mean we only belong to TV,” she added.For Saarvie, keeping herself busy is the most important thing, and that’s why she loves to work for television.
“I'm young, and I can work hard right now. So I just want to work and keep myself busy with shoots, which I get from the television industry. I'm not sitting at home searching for another job; I'm just working daily, and that's what I love the most,” she ended.
