Akshay Kumar on his 16 consecutive flops: 'Standed there and kept working'

New Delhi:

It’s no secret that Akshay Kumar is considered one of the most bankable stars in Bollywood. Over the years, the superstar has proven his mettle in all genres: comedy, action, romance and more. However, the actor’s last few releases have failed to impress audiences, with mediocre to poor box office figures. Recently, at the trailer launch event of his upcoming action thriller Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, Akshay Kumar looked back at some of his recent releases and their box office performances. He said: “We will keep trying every type of film. I don’t stick to one type of genre. I keep jumping from one genre to another whether there is success or not, that’s how I’ve always worked. I will continue to do it… something that is social, something that is good, something in comedy, in action.”

Akshay Kumar added, “I will always continue to do different types of work. I won’t stick to one thing just because people say, ‘sir, aaj kal comedy and action bohot chal rahe hai (I’m told comedy and action works these days)’. That doesn’t mean I have to take action alone. Personally, I start to get bored doing one thing. Whether that was the case Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, or it is Airlift or Rustom, or many other films I have made; sometimes there is success, sometimes not.”

Akshay Kumar’s last few theatrical releases that failed to impress at the box office include Samrat Prithviraj, Raksha Bandhan, Ram Setu, Selfiee, And Mission Raniganj. Talking about their achievements and how he deals with failure, Akshay Kumar said, “It’s not that I haven’t seen this phase before, there was a time when I had 16 consecutive flops in my career. But I stood there and kept working and I still will. This is a film we have all worked hard for this year and now we are going to see the results. We hope this will bring us all good luck.”

In Bade Miyan Chote MiyanAkshay Kumar will be seen alongside the likes of Tiger Shroff, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Manushi Chhillar, Alaya F and Ronit Bose Roy.
