MUMBAI: Bollywood breathes a sigh of relief as box office reports of Akshay Kumars new film �Housefull� begin to arrive. The film has broken the dry spell at the cash registers, earning Rs.64 Crore in the opening weekend worldwide.
In his almost two decade long career, Akshay Kumar has worked in more than 90 films. In the beginning, he concentrated on action movies like �Khiladi�, �Elaan�, �Mohra� and �Main Khiladi Tu Anari�. He also did romantic films like �Yeh Dillagi�, �Dhadkan� and �Dil Toh Paagal Hai�.
It was with Malayalam director Priyadarshans 2000 hit film �Hera Pheri� that Akshay Kumar began experimenting with comedies. He followed it up with blockbusters like �Mujhse Shaadi Karogi�, �Garam Masala�, �Phir Hera Pheri�, �Namastey London�, �Bhagam Bhaag� and the adorable �Singh Is Kinng�.
The star says that he is a natural at comedy scenes because his inspiration comes people whom he sees around him.
