Selfiee becomes Akshay Kumar’s worst first weekend film; his lowest in a decade

Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi starrer ‘Selfiee’, which turned into released in cinemas on Friday, February 24, 2023, failed to electrify audiences and critics alike. The movie have become considered one of Akshay Kumar’s lowest career openers and continued to carry out underwhelmingly over the weekend. This is the fifth consecutive movie that has underperformed at the field workplace for Akshay Kumar. The actor has had a series of underperforming films such as Ram Setu, Bacchan Paandey and others.

While its establishing day had sealed the movie’s destiny, its negligible growth on day 2 further cemented the truth that this Akshay Kumar starrer is heading toward disastrous box workplace popularity. ‘Selfiee’ field office series started out with round Rs 2.60 crore, earned Rs three.Seventy five crore on its 2nd day and has now were given Rs 3.90 crore on its 0.33 day, in line with early estimates from enterprise tracker Sacnilk. The film’s overall collection after 3 3 days stands at around Rs 10 crore.Akshay’s all movies that have been released in theatres in 2022 have failed to document large numbers. Last yr’s Raksha Bandhan and Samrat Prithviraj have been also field-workplace flops. Talking approximately his 3-four flops in a row, Akshay advised Aaj Tak, “This isn’t happening with me for the first time. In my profession, I even have had 16 consecutive flops at a time. There became a time after I had eight films in a row that did no longer work. Now, I have had three-four films in a row that did not work. The factor is that it takes place due to your own fault, film ka na chalna (a film not running). The target audience has modified, you need to exchange, you need to dismantle yourself. You should start again due to the fact the audience calls for to peer some thing else.”

Akshay added, “It is a outstanding alarm, aapki film nahi chal rahi to galti aapki hai (If your movies are not working, it’s miles your fault). When your films flop in a row, it is an alarm for you that it’s time so one can trade. Mai koshish kar raha hun, wahi kar sakta hoon (I am seeking to alternate, this is all I can do).” He additionally stated that he’d like to inform anyone that once films do not paintings, the target audience should now not be blamed. “Do not blame the target audience or everybody else. It is my fault, a hundred%. Aapki film na chalna is not due to target market. It is because of what you chose. Maybe you haven’t given the proper ingredients within the film.”Helmed by Raj Mehta, ‘Selfiee’ is an official Hindi remake of the Malayalam film ‘Driving License’, which starred Prithviraj and Suraj Venjaramoodu within the lead roles.
