What unites the rich and the poor in India? It's…*drumroll* Akshay Kumar!
With his recent movies like Airlift, Rustom, and Gold, it is easy to mistake him as an actor that only does drama films, however, whether it's drama, action or romance, he has paved his way across all these genres diligently. However, if one thing Akshay Kumar is particularly known for across all age groups, it is comedy.
We all were disappointed with who was made the king in Game of Thrones, but don't worry, these 9 movies prove that the King of Comedy's position is well deserved:
