Akshay Kumar, a well-known Bollywood actor, recently released his latest film, Selfiee, co-starring Emraan Hashmi. The movie is an action comedy and a remake of the Malayalam film Driving License. Despite receiving positive feedback for the trailer and the remake of the song, ‘Main Khiladi Tu Anari’ from the film, the audience’s response to the movie has not been very favourable.

In a recent interview with Aaj Tak, Akshay Kumar opened up about the performance of his recent theatrical releases and took responsibility for their lacklustre box office performance. He stated, “It is a great alarm, aapki film nahi chal rahi to galti aapki hai (If your films are not working, it is your fault). 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 (I am trying to change, that is all I can do).” He continued, “Do not blame the audience or anyone else. It is my fault, 100%. Aapki film na chalna is not because of the audience. It is because of what you selected. Maybe you have not given the right ingredients in the film.”

The actor also discussed experiencing similar disappointments in the past, such as when he had 16 consecutive flops. “This is not happening with me for the first 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,” he maintained.
