“I just wanted to earn around 1 crore rupees, that’s it. But I’m a human being, and when I made my first, I thought, why can’t I make 100 crores. To be honest, there was no stopping me”, he shares.

Forbes listing puts Akshay’s collaboration with the streaming giant Amazon Prime Video for the actor’s digital debut series The End as one of the reasons for him being in the list of highest-paid celebrities this year.

While locked down at home amidst the pandemic, Akshay Kumar is keeping himself busy by binge-watching TV shows and spending time with his family.
