Thank you, Filmfare!

He might come across as another surprise on the list. Not much has been written about Akshaye Khanna though a lot has been seen and heard about him. Akshaye had a big hit with Race where he repeated the negative act in Abbas-Mustan film with finesse. Add to that he is the only actor to have an additional film on his list that met with average to above average success – Mere Baap Pehle Aap .


Akshaye has had a very good year so far box-office wise, much better than many bigger stars and this is the first time a film mag even mentions it.

Yeah!! It's Filmfare's kindness to mention Akshaye Khanna as a star at Box-Office. Akshoo deserves the successes. I wish him all the best for Shortkut which is being scheduled for December 2008 release. If he happens to get third hit with Shortkut this year itself, then I'll jump and scream with joy!!! I'll say "Bravo, Akshoo"!!

^How sweet! :)

Akshaye Khanna could have had a very good year box-office wise last year too.

Salaam-E-Ishq first release of Akshaye Khanna was good but the critics were trying to be too harsh towards Nikhil Advani. Otherwise, it could have been a hit. Akshaye Khanna was too good in that movie. Naqaab the second movie of Akshoo was a good thriller. It could have been a hit too. Because of Akshaye Khanna's exceptional performance and Urvashi Sharma's confident debut. Gandhi, My Father is a landmark film and it could have been a big hit like Chak De India. It has international standard as a period film. Aaja Nachle was a nice film that should have been at least a moderate hit.

Humraaz (Hit) and Deewangee (Above Average - Moderate Hit). But, it's now that Filmfare mentions Akshaye Khanna for his two succcesses - Race (Big Hit) and MBPA (Semi-Hit). Better late than never! Thank You, Filmfare!
