Anupam Kher had a heart to heart talk with the star where he discussed challenges and testing times he had experienced, before winnings accolades and achieving success.

Talking about his days in Bangkok the actor said that he moved there after his intermediate as he considers it the only place where he could learn good martial arts at a reasonable cost. His father took a loan for his returning tickets, the actor recalls.

Akshay said that his first job was of a waiter there and he stayed at the top of the restaurant where five-six boys would live together.

“I would work at the restaurant and in the evening I used to practice Thai boxing on the streets,” he said.

Akshay told that it was when he worked as a light boy with still photographer Jayesh Seth the idea of acting clicked in his mind. During his term as a light boy he worked with popular actors like  Govinda, Sangeeta Bijlani, Jackie Shroff and Rekha.

Akshay recalled an incident when Govinda had said 'Oye chikne, tu hero kyun nahin banta? Beta hero ban, hero!’

Talking about his portfolio Akshay said,  Jayesh made my portfolio for free. while shooting the portfolio, I stood on top of a wall and the security guard of that plot made me get off it, saying it was private property. Today, coincidentally, my house is on that very plot!

The actor who had initially done B-grade films said he liked it being called a B-grade actor as he thought a B-grade actor was a ‘bread and butter’ actor. “I considered every film as a film, regardless of what grade it was. Automatically, I became an A-grade actor. From C, I became B, then B-plus, then A and now A-plus” he said.

Anupam Kher the show host took to Twitter to post a picture with the Khiladi star of Bollywood. “Chalo apne TV ke Saamne baith jao. This season's last episode of #TheAnupamKherShow with @akshaykumar is starting.:),” he tweeted.
