He has been a great devotee of former Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee and the same faith has brought him close to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Akshay had once accepted this in an interview and had sung and recited the lines written by Atal ji. Today, when one after another of his films is flopping and he is working towards maintaining his stardom with the same energy, I remember a poem written by Atal Bihari Vajpayee –

Another film of Akshay Kumar on the path of big disaster
"haar nahin maanoonga, 
raar nahin thaanoonga, 
kaal ke kapaal par likhata mitaata hoon, 
geet naya gaata hoon."

It is worth noting that another film by Akshay Kumar seems to be going on the path of disaster. The collection report of 'Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan' (Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff) has been shaken at the box office, and in the first week itself, it has been said that this film is heading towards disaster. This film is declining in collection just like the graph of his last 11 flop films had fallen. And, the interesting thing is that according to the news, Akshay has got contracts for two films these days. That is, despite giving many flop films, his stardom has not been affected much.

It is worth noting that even before COVID-19, Akshay Kumar had a line of flop films. Last year in 2023, where many stars (Shahrukh, Salman, Ranbir Kapoor, Ajay Devgan) had given successful films and there was a lot of success in Bollywood. Yes, there was no Akshay's film in those successful films. Now in 2024, with the news of the deteriorating situation of 'Bade Miyan...', discussion about Akshay Kumar's flop films has started. His films considered unsuccessful in the last four years are - 'Lakshmi' (flopped on OTT), 'Bellbottom', Suryavanshi (this film of director Rohit Shetty did not fare well), and 'Atrangi Re' (on OTT). Apart from these, 'Bachchan Pandey', 'Samrat Prithviraj', 'Rakshabandhan', 'Ram Setu', 'Selfie', 'Misson Raniganj' and 'omg2' (this was also an average business), etc. Now names are going to be added to this list. It is from 'Bade Miyan Chote Miyan'. The film, made for Rs 300 crore (Eid release film on April 11), did not even touch the figure of Rs 100 crore. If 'Bade Miyan...' does not show a miraculous collection in the second week, then this film will become the 12th film in the series of flop films by Akshay Kumar.


Surprisingly, the producers are in discussion with Akshay Kumar to sign a contract for the new film. Despite so many flops, he has 10 films on the floor. If he signs 2 new films then he will have +12 (on the floor) films in response to -12 (flop). That means - Akshay Kumar's ground standing is strong. Perhaps it is the influence of late Atal ji's poems - "Haar Nahi Manunga, Rar Nahi Thanunga... Geet Naya Gaata Hoon" that has affected Akshay, who is standing where he is in stardom.
