Sorry, you're wrong mate!

OK. There was a time when Akshaye got such malicious press, it's a miracle how he managed to turn it around without even trying. This exmple is from The Tribune which still maintains one of the narkiest columns on Akshoo:

Akshaye Khanna is already history; I mean, as in gone gone long ago! And the next guy joining this (retired) category club is very likely to be Saif Ali Khan. Actually, there’s a whole pile of fading out going on in Bollywood right now... and, who knows, by next Sunday, a (large) number of stars — heroes and heroines alike — may have reserved their seats on this wagon (sans band) for a long, lonely journey to nowhere.

What on earth is happening, you’d definitely want to know, right? Well, it’s quite simple, really. With the Hindi film industry (and film makers) having gone into totally impractical and uncontrolled overdrive in making megabuck movies for quite awhile now, the time of reckoning is finally here. The biggest of film makers — be it Yash Chopra, Yash Johar, Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra, Harry Bawaja, Gulzar, Manjrekar... or just about anyone/everyone have come to realise (with dismay) that names (Neither theirs, not their stars) don’t sell no more. film hindia has turned into a free-for-all. May the luckiest win!

Ya think? Saif is now a big star and Akshaye has been in Dil Chahta Hai and Gandhi--My Father, two cult hits that no other Bollywood actor can boast of in his resume, besides giving half a dozen hits.

Hey loser, Akshoo just proved you wrong!

Yeah, I still remember that there were mockery and negative remarks against Akshaye loss, box-office failure, moody attitude, etc... Now, I'm happy that he's really a wonderful actor to be alive in the industry.

Me, I'm still waiting for top directors like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Rakeysh OmPrakash Mehra, Yash Chopra, Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar, Rajkumar sign Akshaye Khanna in their movies. Wonder when they will like Akshaye Khanna or have a meaty and special role for this natural actor of high caliber.

I'm proud of Akshaye Khanna and I'll be prouder if the wish of the anonymous Number 2 is fulfilled. Like you, I'm too waiting for Akshaye Khanna to be directed in a special way.
