Salman Khan had launched Katrina Kaif and Sonakshi Sinha in Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya and Dabangg respectively. However it was Akshay Kumar who has done more movies with both the actresses. So there was Singh is Kiing, Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, Tees Maar Khan etc. with Katrina, while Sonakshi was his heroine in Rowdy Rathore, Holiday, Joker etc. Recently Mouni Roy, our TV’s favourite Naaginn, was being eyed by Salman Khan to be launched in his home production, but she is now making her debut with Akshay Kumar’s Gold.

From lighting up villages to helping people with their surgeries, Salman Khan is known for pushing his Being Human agenda as he helped people who were needy. But in 2017, he gets a serious and a fierce competition from Akshay Kumar, who is now christened as ‘Bharat Kumar’ by his fans for his nationalistic views, his efforts to help the soldiers and his recent drive to build toilets to promote his recent movie.

Playing the good-boy character

Salman Khan’s characters in some of his recent ones have been having that holier than thou attitude with a mentality to help people selflessly. There is Kick, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and Sultan to cite a few examples. Now even Akshay is trying to build up an image for himself in a similar vein, as many of his recent characters have this do-gooder attitude with a patriotic tinge. Like, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Rustom, Airlift, Jolly LLB 2 etc.

Getting Salman’s Manager

For years, it was Reshma Shetty who used to be Salman Khan’s business manager and there was often a buzz that it was her efforts that helped Salman Khan change his brand image and get himself endeared to more fans. Now that Salman has split with his business manager, Akshay wasted no time taking her into his fold. And the decision is working well for him!

Now do you believe us? There cannot be so many co-incidences, and we are sure that Akshay Kumar has adopted all of these success mantras willingly. And it seems to be working just fine for him!
