Akshay Kumar on his films failing at the box office: ‘If my films are not working, it is our fault’

Akshay Kumar's ‘Cuttputlli’ co-starring Rakul Preet Singh releases on September 2.

At the trailer launch of his upcoming film ‘Cuttputlli’, Akshay Kumar opened up about films meeting a tragic fate at the box office. His recently released film ‘Raksha Bandhan’ is his third consecutive flop after ‘Bachchhan Paandey’ and ‘Samrat Prithviraj’. The actor said, ‘no one but he is to be blamed’ if his films are not working. He said he will have to make changes and understand what the audience wants.

‘If my films are not working, it is our fault, it is my fault. I have to make the changes, I have to understand what the audience wants. I want to make changes, I want to dismantle my way of working and think what kind of films I should be doing. Nobody else is to be blamed but me.’ the actor added.

When the actor was questioned about stars taking up OTT projects to create a safe space. He responded, ‘It is not safe, that also requires people to say if they like the trailer or not.’ ‘Nothing is safe, it is not our safety net. Even on OTT people are watching, the media is watching it, the critics are watching it, the audience is watching it, they give feedback whether they like it or not. So, there’s nothing like creating a safe space, you have to work hard, period.’

On the work front, Akshay Kumar's ‘Cuttputlli’ co-starring Rakul Preet Singh releases on September 2 on Disney+ Hotstar. He will also feature in Abhishek Verma’s directorial ‘Ram Setu’
