Akshay Kumar might have become one of the most successful actors of Bollwyood today but the situation hadn’t been all the same for him during his career as an actor. Speaking to the media recently, the actor shared some shocking facts about the way he was treated in the industry during the initial days of his career. He said that the luxury of an actor on the films’ sets depends upon the number of his hit and flops films.

The Times of India quotes him further saying:

“Yes, I was made to feel (outcast). I remember while doing a two-hero film, my three-four films didn’t work, but his (the other hero) did. We were having an equal role but he gets a suite room and I get a single room. He gets an amazing car, but I get that ‘you come in the bus,’ yes it really happens.”

Akshay Kumar revealed that the moment his films started doing well, his relations with a lot of people in the industry changed. He further said:

“If my films work, I would get a bigger room. Sometimes from business class I was shifted to the first class when my films were running. When my films were doing exceptionally well I would get a private jet as well.”



The actor said that in his “27 and a half years” career, he has seen low phases “three to four times” but these transitory failures did not bother him. He said:

“Never take lull or success seriously. They will come and go. It (the ups and down) is bound to happen.”

The actor is now all set for the release of his film ‘Padman’ also spoke about the government imposing GST on sanitary napkins. He said:

“People ask me what do you feel about GST (on sanitary pads). I say, why should there be a GST? It should be free! There are countries which give it for free, there’s no GST on it. It’s an essential thing to make the women strong. I feel it should be free for women.”
