Actors Akshay Kumar are no stranger to memes and jokes about him and his decisions for inspirational films and biographical films. Star he takes it in good spirits and looks at it as a “badge of honor.” It started with memes about Akshay, who played Olympic gold medalist Neeraj Chopra last year, after 126-year-old Swami Sivananda and now 19-year-old midnight runner Pradeep Mehra.
Speaking to the Hindustan Times, Akshay said, “If meme is funny, I laugh. Aur nahi toh kya, normal hai … joke acha hota hai toh aap bhi haste him on (What else, is it normal. If the joke is good, laugh)? And who wouldn’t like a good laugh? ”Akshay was part of a series of patriotic and themed films, including Airlift, Pad Man and Mission Mangal. It has become a fodder for a lot of entertainment for social network users.

Akshay is glad to be the center of these memes because he feels it means he’s still relevant to the audience. He says that he ‘could not have been happier’ because he believes that he has created a space for himself where he fits into such roles. “It’s what helped me stay relevant and in the memory of my audience. The one with Pradeep, the one I saw, it’s a film from my upcoming film Raksha Bandhan, “he said.
Akshay was last seen in Bachchhan Paandey, who did not do as bright a deal as was expected of a cash register. He revealed that The Kashmir Files’ furious success was one of the reasons the film failed, but stressed that he did not blame Vivek Agnihotri for the film and called it a ‘storm’.
Akshay Kumar is preparing a number of films, including Prithviraj, Ram Setu and Raksha Bandhan.
