AKSHAYE Khanna is the new kid on the block. The most promising of all star-kid newcomers, with looks, style, flawless diction and acting ability to boot. Apart from which, he has worked and is working with some of the best banners in the film industry.
Apart from his father’s fabulous looks, part of Akshaye’s inheritance was also the recognition that came with being Vinod Khanna’s son.
Akshaye Khanna started film career with Himalayaputra produced by his father. The film flopped but Akshaye's performance was appreciated and his intense, brooding aura and surprisingly sweet smile have won the audience's attention. He proved his acting abilities by his second film J P Dutta's Border and his role, though a tiny one, won praises for him. Spanning six years Akshay’s film career has been extremely tumultuous. There was a time when his film career was on the verge of a virtual collapse. Taal put this talented actor back in the reckoning.
Even before he has become a star Akshaye has developed a mystique. In his real life, he's a complete normal guy and an extremely private person. He refuses to let anyone into his private and personal matters and because of this he lacks the media's good graces. Self-belief has been Akshaye's strongest asset.
Today Akshaye Khanna is accepting the hectic pace of showbiz life. He is content to concentrate on just one project at a time, instead of rushing from set to set. This talented actor will surely prove himself opposite the establish actress and will come in the lot of superstars within no time.
