In an interview to leading daily, Akshay said, "When my film flops, I don't wallow in self-pity. I continue working. Then why should that change when my film is doing well? I started my career with smaller movies, which were called B-grade films. That was my bread and butter, and I have no shame admitting that. Back then, I used to be nervous before every film. Even now, before every release, I feel like I'm appearing for an exam."
Akshay further added, "Certain people will always try to distract you, but you must stay away from such negativity. I have learnt to concentrate on my work. About 10 years ago, I had 14 flops in a row. I didn't know what a hit or a flop was. Now I have started to understand all this. I'm a better businessman now."
Well, after giving a superhit like Rowdy Rathore we can surely say action works for Akshay!
