After Training in Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting Institute in Mumbai, Akshay Khanna made his acting debut in Bollywood in 1997 with the movie Himalaya Putra, which was produced by his father and could not show much success at box office. His next release was J. P. Dutta-directed Border (1997) which earned him the Filmfare Best Debut Award and a nomination for Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1998. After that, a serial of unsuccessful films followed such as Mohabbat (1997), Kudrat (1998), Laawaris (1999), Love You Hamesha (1999) and Dahek: A Burning Passion (1999). Akshay Khanna appeared in Rishi Kapoor’s Aa Ab Laut Chalen in 1999, though the film did average business and he was admired for his performance in this film. His next release in1999 was Subhash Ghai’s Taal opposite Aishwarya Rai. The film emerged with huge critical and commercial success. In 2001, Khanna was starred in Farhan Akhtar’s cult classic Dil Chahta Hai which turned out to be a breakthrough of his career. The film was successful both commercially and critically. Khanna’s performance in the film was particularly admired, later certified by first Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2002. Akshay Khanna appeared in Abbas-Mustan thriller Humraaz and his role as a convincing con-artist in this film brought him much critical acclamation and a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Performance in a Negative Role. Khanna then moved to the comedy genre with Priyadarshan’s Hungama (2002) and Hulchul (2004) that became commercially successful and box office hit. He then appeared in a string of unsuccessful and moderate box-office films like Shaadi Se Pehle (2006), Aap Ki Khatir (2006), Salaam-e-Ishq (2007), Mere Baap Pehle Aap (2008) and Naqaab (2007). Akshay Khanna appeared in the Abbas-Mustan’s 2008’s thriller race which was the fourth highest-grossing Bollywood film in 2008 and Khanna’s performance in a negative role earned him a couple of awards in the Best Villain category including iifa awards. Khanna’s portrayal of Harilal Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi’s eldest son, in the 2007 film Gandhi, My Father was critically acclaimed which was collectively acknowledged his best performance yet as an actor. In 2010 he was starred in Anees Bazmee’s No Problem along with Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor and Kangna Ranaut. His later performances in Aakrosh (2010) and Tees Maar Khan (2010) were well-received by critics as well as audiences. In 2012 he appeared in Gali Gali Chor Hai and after a huge gap he appeared in 2016 in the movie dishoom where she played a negative role.
