4. Irrfan Khan

Who would have imagined this big gun to ever not be associated with the film industry? Irrfan Khan is not only a name in Bollywood but Hollywood has had its fair taste of perfection with Irrfan being a part of huge projects like Life of Pi, Jurassic World and the upcoming Inferno, where he will be seen with Tom Hanks.



This National Award Winner ran a tire business back in his struggling days. Talk about progress!

5. Akshay Kumar

Akshay has been the perfect Khiladi in the game of life. He is a classic example of how hard work takes you a long way. Akshay worked as a waiter and cook in Bangkok. He did small jobs like selling jewelry and clothes. He learned Marshal Arts in Bangkok and eventually bagged a modeling gig. Today, he is superstar Rajesh Khanna’s son-in-law and one of the most amazing actors we have. He is an underrated gem of a performer.
