September 10, 2020 10:54 IST

We continue celebrating Akshay Kumar's birthday, with a list of his 20 biggest blockbusters over the years.

You saw PART 1 of this special.

Joginder Tuteja brings you the second part:


Box office collection: Rs 113 crore

A film with immense recall value, Holiday was a solid hit on its release. Now, it has achieved a superhit status of sorts on the satellite and OTT circuits.

This A R Murugadoss action drama was a good entertainer and boasted of some solid twists.


Box office collection: Rs 105 crore

Gold, a sports movie, entered the Rs 100 crore club.

It got a lot of competition from Satyameva Jayate, which released on the same day.


Box office collection: Rs 95.50 crore

Baby is one of Akshay's earlier films before he started scoring centuries at the box office.

He delivered a good performance in this thriller directed by Neeraj Pandey.


Gabbar Is Back
Box office collection: Rs 87.59 crore

Another film that narrowly missed entering the Rs 100 crore club, Gabbar Is Back featured Akshay as a no-nonsense vigilante.

Packed with masala ingredients, the film saw a lot of action as well as Akshay's solid chemistry with Kareena Kapoor.


Box office collection: Rs 81.82 crore

PadMan came at a time when Akshay was working on films with a nationalist and patriotic feel to them. The film won him a National Award.

Directed by R Balki, the film took on the issue of menstrual hygiene and saw critical appreciation as well.


OMG: Oh My God!
Box office collection: Rs 81 crore

IMAGE: Akshay Kumar in OMG: Oh My God!.

Akshay had an extended special appearance in OMG: Oh My God!, which hinged on Paresh Rawal's power-packed performance and made for a solid impact right through the narrative.

This Umesh Shukla directorial went on to be a huge winner at the box office.


Box office collection: Rs 75 crore

IMAGE: Akshay Kumar in Welcome.

Anees Bazmee's Welcome has enjoyed an immense shelf life for more than a decade.

The coming together of Akshay Kumar, Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar along with Katrina Kaif and Mallika Sherawat was a huge draw amongst the audiences, who laughed all through the narrative.


Singh Is Kinng
Box office collection: Rs 74 crore

Singh Is Kinng saw Akshay as a Sikh in this Anees Bazmee comedy.

A follow-up to Welcome, the film boasted of some chartbuster music.

Akshay and Katrina Kaif's successful pairing made sure the film became a superhit, ensuring the former's rapid climb in his career.


Tees Maar Khan
Box office collection: Rs 68 crore

IMAGE: Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar in Tees Maar Khan.

Tees Maar Khan may not be among Akshay's most remembered films, but it took a good opening and went on to be a reasonable success at the box office.

One expected Director Farah Khan to deliver a superhit again after Om Shanti Om, and though Katrina Kaif's Shiela Ki Jawaani remains a rage till date, there isn't much of recall value here.


Special 26
Box office collection: Rs 67 crore

IMAGE: Anupam Kher, Akshay Kumar, Rajesh Sharma and Kishore Kadam in Special 26.

An intelligent thriller directed by Neeraj Pandey, Akshay and Anupam Kher were in their element. Surprisingly, the film did not cover the distance it truly deserved.

But it has aged like fine wine since then.
