In a recent media interaction, Akshay Kumar spoke about the consecutive flops he faced in his career in the past and the recent ones. The actor also spoke about taking the sole responsibility of his films not performing well at the box office.

"This is not happening to 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 work. Now, I have had three-four films in a row that did not work. The thing is that it happens due to your own fault, film ka na chalna (a film not working). The audience has changed, you need to change, you need to dismantle yourself. You have to start again because the audience requires you to see something else," he said.

"It is a great alarm, aapki film nahi chal rahi to galti aapki hai (If your films are not working, it is your fault). When your films flop in a row, it is an alarm for you that it is time for you to change. Main koshish kar raha hun, wahi kar sakta hoon (I am trying to change, that is all I can do)," Kumar continued.

He also said that he'd like to tell everyone that when films don't work, the audience must not be blamed, "Do not blame the audience or anyone else. It is my fault, 100 percent. Aapki film na chalna is not because of the audience (a film not working is your fault only). It is because of what you selected. Maybe you have not given the right ingredients in the film," he added.

Kumar was last seen in Selfiee directed by Raj Mehta, the film also stars Emraan Hashmi, Nushrratt Bharuccha.
