    In this Milap Zaveri directorial, Akshay played himself who performs during a shoot of his film.

  9. Om Shanti Om (2007)

    Probably one of the best cameos that Akshay has done in his 25-year long career. His act as The Return of Khiladi in this SRK starrer was the best compared to other stars that had a blink and miss cameo. His action scenes and the scene where his misses out on the award were worth the price for the ticket, and this performance was underrated and deserved more attention.

  10. Dil To Pagal Hai (1997)

    He had a special appearance in this Yash Chopra romance which also had Shah Rukh, Madhuri Dixit and Karisma Kapoor. He got to romance Madhuri in the film who happens to fall for SRK and finally walks into the sunset with the latter leaving a smiling Akshay behind. The title track however, was picturized on Akshay and Madhuri. Take a look.
  11. Aaj (1987)

    Not many know that Akshay faced the camera for the first time in this Mahesh Bhatt film where he appeared as a Karate instructor. The film though is remembered for its lilting music and numbers by Jagjit Singh which starred Kumar Gaurav, Anamika Pal, Smita Patil, Raj Babbar and Raj Kiran.
