He said it’s time to introspect

Answering the same, Akshay Kumar was quick to say, “No, see, Films are not working, it is our fault, my fault. I have to make the changes. I have to understand what the audience wants. I want to do some changes. I want to dismantle the way I think and the kinds of films I should do. There is nobody else to be blamed for it but me.”

When asked about OTT released, he said, “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 here (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.”

“Akshay has rediscovered himself so many times, if there is someone who can get people back quickly to theatres it’s him,” read a comment.

Another fan said, “At some level you have to admire the dedication and focus he has for making money. He doesn’t care about reddit comments or Twitter trends. He will try to reinvent and sell what the audience wants.”

Another Reddit user said, “For once, i am happy someone is not putting the blame on the audience.”

Talking about his back-to-back releases, Akshay said that many of these films were made during the lockdown and couldn’t be released. “During the pandemic, many films were made, while some released, many couldn’t be released because theatres were shut, and there were many issues during the lockdown. Hum kaam karte rahein, filmein jamaa hoti rahi. I have four films ready which we couldn’t release in the last two years, if there was no pandemic this wouldn’t be the scenario, there would be at least two to four months gap between my films.”
