Dubai, UAE, April 8, 2017: Bollywood megastar Akshay Kumar has been proclaimed the Best Actor for his magnanimous role as Naval Commander Rustom Pavri in the 2016 crime thriller Rustom.
Inspired by the 1959 Nanavati case, this Akshay Kumar starrer was a critically acclaimed and equally successful film.
The megastar took to twitter to express gratitude and posted a video. He wrote, “Best Actor for Rustom, countless emotions, very hard to express my gratitude right now but I still tried, a big THANK YOU”.
After delivering a high profile roster of successful films in 2016 with Airlift to Rustom, and kick-starting 2017 with a bang with Jolly LL.B 2, one can safely say that Akshay Kumar is the most bankable star in India, winning both critical and audience acclaim.
2017 also sees Akshay Kumar in a series of standout films including Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, Padman, and the mega budget sci-fi film 2.0 with Rajnikanth.
