When Akshay Kumar first took up the role of Raj in Khiladi in 1992, he would have never thought the movie series would go this far. We doubt it if he would have even guessed that post few movies in the Khiladi series, he would be nicknamed Mr. Khiladi of Bollywood. From 1992-2012 he has done 8 movies in this series and would still do another if the there was a script. Here’s a list of all the movies he has done in those series.
Four college youngsters enjoy their life. Raj portrayed by Akhsay Kumar is the cool dude who never loses any bets in life. He confidently says that he can extort money from Kailsah (Prem Nath). He devices a plan to kidnap Sheetal, Kailash’s daughter. All four friends act according to the plan and Raj manages to get the money. Trouble stats when someone stabs Sheetal and she dies in front of them.
Mai Khiladi Tu Anari 1994
Akshay Kumar comes back with another movie in the Khiladi series. But this time, unlike the arrogant and carefree teenager he portrays the role of a cop who seeks to avenge his brother death who was killed by a drug lord. Complications arise when the only witness who had agreed to testify against him get murdered.
Sabse Bada Khiladi 1995
This movie has quite a complicated plot. Akshay Kumar is first introduced as Lallu and then next as Inspector Vijay Kumar and then again as Lallu and then again as Vijay Kumar. Huff! i’d be lying if i said I did not get confused while I watched this movie the first time.
Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi 1996
We would think that Bollywood could or rather would only produce/direct/manufacture three movies in a series? Well we were wrong. Post the success of Sabse Bada Khiladi, Akshay starred in another blockbuster, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi. Akshay goes to Canada to meet his beloved brother. He soon realizes that he has got himself in the deepest pit of crime and sleaze!
Mr. and Mrs. Khiladi 1997
After all the action movies, Mr and Mrs Khiladi was the first rom com. Raja has a strong belief in astrology and gets his future predicted. As luck would have it, the astrologer predicts that Raja is going to have an amazing life ahead. Knowing this, he gets lazy and doesn’t work for anything. Enter Shalu (Juhi Chawla) daughter of a rich millionaire and Raja’s life interest. Will he get everything? Or will he have to work around?
International Khiladi 1999
The shrill icy voice of the female background score still rings in my ears to this date. A not so innocent love story turns innocent when news reporter Payal, falls in love with the world’s most feared and dreaded criminal Devraj portrayed by Akshay Kumar.
Khiladi 420 2000
Unlike in Sabse Bada Khiladi, Aksahy Kumar actually portrays double character in this movie. He plays the crooked twin, Dev and the sensible guy Anand. Ironic that the names when joined sound like Dev Anand? That’s just Bollywood’s way of keeping things interesting.
Khiladi 786 2012
Believe it or not! The story revolves more around Himmesh than Akshay. In a very twisted way, the story of this movie would have base or structure without Himmesh’s involvement.
