Actor Akshay Kumar is often seen delivering 3-4 films in a single year. His upcoming movie list is huge; however, not all his movies turned out to be successful. Akshay’s previous movies like Mission Raniganj, Selfiee have not fared well at the box office. Now, he is coming up with an action-packed movie titled Bade Miyan Chote Miyan with Tiger Shroff. During the trailer launch of the movie, he was asked about the back-to-back box office failures.

Akshay Kumar on doing different genres and its success

The OMG 2 actor said, “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.”

Akshay continued, “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. (I am told comedy and action is working these days)’. It doesn’t mean I should only do action. I 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.”

Akshay Kumar recalled when he had 16 consecutive flops

He shared, “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.”

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan is scheduled to release on April 10.
