In an interview with AajTak, Akshay said that it is his fault that the films haven't worked. "This is not happening with me for the first time. In my career, I have had 16 consecutive flops at a time. There was a time when I had eight films in a row that did not do well. Now, I have had three-four films not working. The thing is that it happens due to your own fault, film ka na chalna (a film not working)."
He also went on to add:
"The audience have changed so you need to change, you need to keep up with the times. You have to start again because the audience wants to see something new and I am trying to do that - all I can do is try.Akshay Kumar, Actor
