Mumbai: Actor Akshay Kumar, who has over millions of well-wishers across India, credits his fans for making an actor a 'star.'

The Khiladi actor added that he didn't take things for granted and had gone through highs and lows in his over a decade long movie career.
"There was a time when I delivered 14 flops in a row. I was down in the dumps, and suddenly the 15th film worked and then there were 16 films which were box office hits," said Akshay, star of films like like Singh Is Bliing and Welcome.
The actor said it felt 'great to know' the audience loved the movies he did and that he liked doing films which offered 'wholesome entertainment to the entire family'.
"There is lot of hard work put in by a lot of people to make the movie and bring it to audiences. I like doing film which offer wholesome entertainment to the entire family, and the Singh series is a perfect blend of comedy, romance, action and a lot of masti," Akshay said.
