There was a time when the success of a movie was measured by how long it runs in the theatres. But these days if a film makes it into the hundred crore club, then only it is declared a hit. But superstar Akshay Kumar says that he is not worried about his movies entering the 100 crore club.
Akki's last film Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara (OUATIMD) was a dud and now the pressure on him to deliver a hit has increased. Akshay was in New Delhi to promote his next film, Boss, which releases tomorrow and said " I am not concerned about my movies making 100 crores. Oh My God(OMG)was made in 12 crores and it earned around 85 crores, which means we got a return of almost 300-400 percent. OMG was a huge hit, in fact my biggest hit till date, despite not earning 100 crores. Boss is made on a budget of around 50 crores and I am not worried about it crossing the 100 crore mark."

Akshay is playing the role of a Haryanvi gangster in Boss, which is an action-comedy. When asked about whether he is repeating himself as in his last outing OUATIMD, he also played a gangster, Akshay said " In Boss my role is of a person with a golden heart and to do things for good causes, he does a lot of odd jobs. My role in Boss and OUATIMD have different mindset."
Boss is hitting the theatres tomorrow. Mithun Chakraborty is playing the role of Akki's father in the film. The movie also stars Aditi Rao Hydari, Shiv Pandit and Ronit Roy in pivotal roles.
