When it comes to the box office, Akshay Kumar is truly a Khiladi! Despite being in the industry for almost three decades now, the superstar is still one of the most sought-after actors, and why not? With each passing year, Akshay has just cemented his credibility as the most bankable star. Speaking of his recent track record, the actor managed a hattrick of 200 crore grossers with Mission Mangal, Housefull 4 and Good Newwz. Also, his upcoming projects like Sooryavanshi and Laxmmi Bomb are expected to be much bigger successes than all his previous releases. But amidst all such successful outings, do you know when he delivered his last Flop? Read on.
It was in 2013 i.e. six years ago, when delivered his last Flop in the form of Boss. The film ended up collecting 54 crores and was a Flop (as per Koimoi verdict).
