In an interview to PTI, Akshay Kumar says, "Flops don't bother me. I just work harder in my next film. Every human being has to go from high to low from low to high. If you understand that, then you will never have a problem. Seven years ago, I delivered 14 flops... big deal. You just keep on working."
Superstars like Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Ajay Devgn have crossed Rs 100-crore mark at the box office in the first week. Despite having more number of releases compared to them, Akki has not been able to achieve this mark. When asked about it, Akshay Kumar says, "I was the first guy whose film Singh is Kinng raked in Rs 70-80 crore but soon some other film came in and it was broken. Every year that benchmark is going to increase, today it is Rs 100 crore, tomorrow it will Rs 150 or 200 crore, one day after five years, Rs 400 crore would seem less. So it (records) will keep breaking."
Akshay has an eventful year this time, with Sajid Khan's multi-starrer comic-caper, Housefull 2; Prabhu Deva's directorial venture Rowdy Rathore, where he will be seen as an action hero; Shirish Kunder's fantasy adventure film Joker, action-comedy Khiladi 786 and a heist drama Special Chabbis.
