It took a little Dhadkan and a couple of Hera Pheris before Akshay could convince his superstitious distributors about his abilities to deliver hits sans a Khiladi in the title.
Even if the Khiladi roles were one-dimensional, the actor added spice to his look. On a few occasions, he hung around in uncombed, ruffled hair (Sabse Bada Khiladi, Mr and Mrs Khiladi), on others he sported a gelled, pony tailed look (Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi).
Contrary to the song in KKK, Hum hain seedhe saade Akshay (I am plain ol' Akshay!), the man seemed anything but.
