The gummy grin’s gone and there’s no goofiness in his gait. Looking every bit a gentleman, or as the magazine puts it l’ homme extraordinare Akshay Kumar poses confidently in a black Dior homme suit, exuding that ‘I mean business’ kinda look.

Surrounding the 42-year-old star on the cover of the latest issue of L’ Officiel are three women, dressed in fetching Dior black gowns.

After a rather forgettable 2009, Akshay is now geared up for an eventful 2010, with four films - home production Khatta Meetha, Sajid Nadiawala’s Houseful, Nikhil Advani's 'Patiala House' and Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan - secure in his pocket.
