Akshay Khanna is son of the Bollywood star turned politician Vinod
Khanna. He made his debut in Bollywood with the movie "Himalayputra",
went without much success at box office. Akshaye Khanna gave remarkable
performance in his next movie "Border", directed by J. P.
Dutta and received a couple of awards for his performance. After that a
string of flop films followed. Perhaps it was his imprudent choice of
films such as "Mohabbat", "Kudrat", "Lawaris",
"Love You Hamesha" and "Dahek" that turned the tide
against Akshaya Khanna. Then, there came a ray of hope in the form of
Rishi Kapoor's "Aa Ab Laut Chale". Though the film did average
business but he was praised for his acting in this film. Since then he
has given remarkable performance in a number of movies like "Dil
Chahta Hai", "Deewar", "Gandhi, My Father", "Hulchul",
"Humraaj" and Hungama. Akshay Khanna won the Filmfare Best
Supporting Actor Award for his performance in the film "Dil Chahta
Hai". In his recent released film "Gandhi, My Father" he
portrayed the character of Harilal Gandhi, Harilal was eldest son of
Mahatma Gandhi. He was praised by critics for his performance and was
mentioned as his best performance so far.
