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.

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.
