Akshay Kumar”s latest film Selfiee failed to score big at the box office, and exhibitor Manoj Desai angrily questions him for appearing on The Kapil Sharma Show after repeated failures at the box office.
Akshay’s back-to-back failures
Akshay Kumar has a magnificent career span of 32 years, he is one of the most celebrated actors in Bollywood. But it seems the last couple of years have been difficult for the actor in terms of box-office hits. His latest release ‘Selfiee’ also tanked at the ticket window. Since Sooryavanshi, he has been catching back-to-back failures in terms of impressing the audience. All his films that were released in theatres in 2022 have failed to record huge numbers. Last year’s Raksha Bandhan and Samrat Prithviraj were also big box-office flops.
Recently, Mumbai’s popular theatre Gaiety Galaxy’s owner and executive director, Manoj Desai lashed out at Akshay Kumar for appearing repeatedly on The Kapil Sharma Show despite delivering yet another flop in his career.
Manoj Desai lashed out at Akshay
He told ETimes, “Why do you regularly go there? Do you have any investments there? That is Salman Khan’s show. Why do you go to that Kapil? My friends and my audience have told me Akshay Kumar goes to The Kapil Sharma Show regularly, does it suit you? Now I am asking you, does it suit you?”
Manoj also claimed that Akshay should limit his annual releases to two films, instead of the usual four to five releases that he has.
“Akshay Kumar should not feature in four-five films per year. You were on Kapil’s show recently, what did you get? He just needs to earn his money and Sony pays him for fooling people and, making them laugh.”
Recently, Akshay admitted that it is his fault if his films have not been working. He told Aaj Tak in an interview that it is an alarm for actors to reinvent themselves if their three or four films do not work in a row.
