Akshay Kumar reveals being criticised for working on multiple films in a year

Akshay Kumar and his upcoming movie, Raksha Bandhan, have been trending in the entertainment news for a long time. The actor’s film was called for a boycott too. In fact, it wouldn’t be the first time Akshay’s films have been called for a boycott of late. Moreover, he has been announcing films upon films. The last couple of which have been disasters as far as box office is concerned. When asked if the dull response at the box office should make an actor more responsible with the types of films, Akshay admitted that a lot of people are bothered but the box office number and hence, the current scenario in the industry where Bollywood has only given a handful of hits needs to be changed. While talking about working in films back to back, Akshay Kumar said that he got a lot of suggestions and advice from the industry insiders asking him to go slow on the films and go easy in his professional life.
