Akshay Kumar is one of the busiest actors in Bollywood. However, his recent films did not work well at the box office. Selfiee, released this Friday, tanked at the box office. Akshay Kumar’s last hit film was Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi in 2021. After Sooryavanshi, Akshay worked in films like Bachchhan Paandey, Samrat Prithviraj, Raksha Bandhan, Cuttputlli, and Ram Setu, all of which are flops. Even his latest release Selfiee did not find audiences at the theatres. In the latest interview with Aaj Tak, Akshay Kumar talked about his consecutive flops. He said,
“This is not happening with me for the first time. In my career, I have had 16 consecutive flops at a time. There was a time when I had eight films in a row that did not work. Now, I have had three-four films in a row that did not work. The thing is that it happens due to your own fault, film ka na chalna (a film not working). The audience has changed; you need to change, you need to dismantle yourself. You have to start again because the audience require to see something else.”
Akshay Kumar said that this is not the audience’s fault. But it is my fault. He said,
“Aapki film nahi chal rahi to galti aapki hai. When your films flop in a row, it is an alarm for you that it is time for you to change. Mai koshish kar raha hun, wahi kar sakta hoon. Do not blame the audience or anyone else. It is my fault, 100%. Aapki film na chalna is not because of audience. It is because of what you selected. Maybe you have not given the right ingredients in the film.”
Though some of his films that became flopped have very good storylines. Akshay Kumar has exciting upcoming movies lined up. Hope he will come back stronger.
