Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar said in his close to three-decade-long career, action has been one of the biggest reasons for his consistency in Bollywood.

The 51-year-old actor, who started his career in 1991 with "Saugandh", went to on to become one of the biggest action stars in the Hindi film industry courtesy his performance in "Khiladi" series -- "Khiladi", "Main Khiladi Tu Anari", "Sabse Bada Khiladi", "Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, "International Khiladi", "Khiladi 420" and "Khiladi 786".

Akshay is currently filming director Rohit Shetty's next venture "Sooryavanshi", the fourth film in the filmmaker's cop universe.

"From the day acting became my destiny, action has been my lifeline. Pure, unadulterated action in #Sooryavanshi will tell you'll why it still fires up my core," he wrote on Instagram alongside a set video of him performing some tough stunts.

This post has a video in which Akshay features in car and bike chases as well as a death-defying stunt in which he is seen hanging from a helicopter, while Shetty directs him.

Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is producing the film, tweeted: "Behind the scenes of India's very own cinematic universe. Oh... and trust me, this is just the tip of the iceberg. That's what happens when Rohit Shetty and Akshay Kumar get together."

"Sooryavanshi" also reunites Akshay with his longtime collaborator Katrina Kaif after a gap of nine years.

The movie is scheduled to be released on March 27 next year.
