Jolly LLB 2 star Akshay Kumar is busy promoting Taapsee Pannu’s film “Naam Shabana” reveals why he opted for name change earlier in his career.
I worked in Mahesh Bhatt’s directorial film Aaj(1987) having a role of 4.7 seconds. After seeing Kumar Gaurav in his lead role in the film having his name Akshay inspired me to go in Bandra court and filed a name change application instantly.
Akshay said what triggered me to go for name change I myself don’t know, but as I got my visiting cards of my new name although having no films to my credit, it somehow favored me and since then I never had a look back, so name Akshay become my lucky charm from Rajeev Bhatiya.
Akshay kumar is known for his action packed films like Khiladi series never wanted to become an actor, but destiny has chosen something else for me, who always wanted to become Marshal artist and my ideal was Broos.
