Akshay Kumar: “It’s my fault. I failed.”

Akshay Kumar: "It is my mistake.  I have failed."

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar recently reacted to his recent failures. He admits that he failed. The 54-year-old actor says that he has listened to the public and needs to make the necessary changes.

The last three films by Akshay Kumar, Bachchhan Paandey, Samrat Prithviraj and now Raksha Bandhan have failed to attract audiences to theaters. His latest film, Raksha Bandhan, also took on the current trend of boycotting Bollywood on social media. “The movies have not worked. It’s our fault; my fault. I have to make changes, understand what the public wants and there is no one else to blame,” he says.

Akshay is one of the busiest actors with various projects. He also indicated during the interview that many of his films have been put on hold during the pandemic. This was not the launch scenario he had in mind. “All my movies were released in theaters pretty quickly after the pandemic. We’ve worked hard for the last two years, but because all the theaters were closed, the movies naturally piled up. If there wasn’t a pandemic, there would be at least two or four months between my movies.”

Akshay was asked if actors are now more likely to opt for an OTT project because of the “safe space” it offers them and where they are less likely to experience film failure. “That space is also not safe. There, too, the audience judges your film based on the trailer. It is not a safety net. The public is also critical of OTT, media surveillance and feedback on content is given. There is no such thing as a safe space. You just have to work hard.”
