Akshaye Khanna, who has appeared in favorite films like Hungama, Hustle, and Dil Chahta Hai, is now 46 years old. Akshay made his Bollywood debut with the multi-starrer film Himalaya Putra in 1997. Starring father Vinod Khanna, Hema Malini, Satish Kaushik, and Johnny Liver, the film did a disappointing performance at the box office but Akshay’s performance was well received. He was also awarded the Star Screen Best Male Debut Award for the first film. Akshay, who gave many hit films, achieved success in his career but still lacks a spouse in his personal life. On the special occasion of Akshay’s birthday, let us know some special things related to him-
Could have become the son-in-law of Kapoor family
Even at the age of 46, Akshaye Khanna, who was sitting single, continued to become a son-in-law of the Kapoor family. Karisma’s father wanted his daughter to get married to Akshaye Khanna, for which he had a relationship with Vinod Khanna, according to the film Beat’s news. At that time Karisma Kapoor was giving hit films one after the other.
Karishma’s mother Babita did not want any kind of barrier in her career, so she was unhappy with this relationship. Due to this decision of Babita, the marriage of both of them could not progress further. Karisma’s name was later associated with Abhishek. Abhishek Bachchan’s mother Jaya wanted Karishma not to do films after marriage, due to which their relationship also broke up. While Karisma has divorced after marrying Sanjay Kapoor, Akshay is still a bachelor.
Why Akshay does not want to get married
During an interview, when questioned about his marriage to Akshay, the actor made it clear that he never wanted to get married. Explaining the reason for this, he said- I like to be alone. I can stay in a relationship for some time but I cannot run a relationship for a long time. Along with this, the actor said that he does not like children and this is also a reason for not getting married.
There are many ups and downs in a career
Akshaye Khanna gave films like Taal, Border, and Hamraj in his early career but the actor never achieved a big name. Gradually Akshay started being typecast. He started getting the same roles and films. Akshay received many accolades for the 2008 film Race but these accolades did not last long.
In 2010, Akshay’s three films No Problem, Tees Maar Khan, and Aakrosh were released and all three proved to be a flop at the box office. After 2012, Akshay’s hand could not do any film for 4 years, after which he made a comeback in 2016 with the film Dishoom.
