When Akshaye Khanna revealed his premature baldness OCN NEWS

When the late Vinod Khanna launched his son Akshaye with the 1997 film Himalaya Putra, he was touted as Bollywood’s next big star. Although the film exploded at the box office, Akshaye Khanna was noticed and soon cast in the same year in the legendary war film Border which earned him immense praise and recognition. However, he couldn’t match Border’s success with his next films and only a handful of them like Humraaz, Taal, Hungama, Dil Chahta hai and Race managed to do well. By the late 2000s, he had almost disappeared from the public eye, save for a few occasional appearances in supporting roles.

Many moviegoers as well as the media attributed his premature baldness as one of the reasons for his career decline. However, the actor says that although the hair loss bothered him at first, he is no longer bothered by it.

Akshaye mentioned losing her hair at a young age in a 2020 interview with Midday when discussing her looks and her hair. He said: “For me it was like a pianist losing his fingers because it started happening to me at such a young age.

“Until you accepted it and it started to bother you less, it was really like that for me throughout those days. It’s heartbreaking if you’re a sportsman and you find out that you have need knee surgery because you could miss a year or two of your career.

It wasn’t the first time Akshaye had broached the subject. When asked who had the worst hairstyle in Bollywood during the rapid-fire round of a previous episode of Koffee With Karan, Akshaye answered by name. “Some people need hearing aids, while others have back problems, eye problems or both. Some people might think I’m completely stupid, but to me that’s just part of the story. He went on to say that it was not a big problem for him but a minor problem.

Akshaye was last seen last year in a lead role in the Zee5 movie State of Siege: Temple Attack and a small cameo in Hungama 2 which was also an OTT release. He is currently filming for Drishyam 2 helmed by Abhishek Pathak.
