Kumar’s professional story is pretty extraordinary. For starters, you should know that he is a professional martial artist, who obtained a black belt while living in Taekwondo (India) and later studied martial arts in Thailand. Upon his return to Mumbai, the future millionaire started working as a teacher. The salary for this job was very small and Akshay had difficulties trying to make the ends meet. Everything started to change when one of his martial arts‘ students, who was pursuing career in photography, recommended Akshay as a model for one of his friends. The paycheck Kumar has received for his two-day stunt in front of the camera exceeded his monthly salary! Excited about the easy-money, the he decided to do modelling for living. Everything seemed to be going pretty well, until one day Kumar has missed an important flight, putting his whole career as a model in danger. The man was extremely disappointed with himself and upset, but eventually missing that flight turned out to be one of the greatest things that has ever happened to him.

I guess his martial arts‘ skills and model looks have a lot to with it… By the way, there is another important source of Akshay Kumar net worth besides of acting: he is a successful producer!
