Akshay Kumar Breaks silence on back-to-back flops, says, "It is not that I have not seen…"

When asked if he feels ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ will end up breaking the chain of his consecutive box office flops, Akshay Kumar said, “I am keeping my fingers crossed, I hope so!”

“We keep on trying for every type of film. I don’t stick to one kind of genre. I keep on jumping from one genre to another, whether there is success or no success, that’s how I have always worked. I’ll keep on doing it, something that is social, something that is good, something in comedy, in action,” he added.

Kumar also said that he is often advised to stick to comedy and action films because that are the kind of movies that are working today. “I will always keep on doing different kinds of (work). I won’t be sticking to one kind of thing just because people say, ‘sir, aaj kal comedy and action bohot chal rahe hai. It doesn’t mean I should only do action. I myself start getting bored if I do one kind of thing. Whether it was Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, whether it is Airlift or Rustom, or many other films that I have done; sometimes success is there, sometimes it’s not.”

“It is not that I have not seen (this phase before), there was a time when I had 16 consecutive flops in my career. But I stood there and kept on doing work and I’ll still do that. This is one film this year for which we all have done lots of hard work and now we are going to see the results. We hope this is going to bring good luck to all of us,” he added.

Coming back to Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, the movie also stars Tiger Shroff, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Sonakshi Sinha, Manushi Chhillar and Alaya F. The actioner will be released in cinemas on April 10, coinciding with Eid 2024.
