Akshay Kumar earlier revealed that, a few years ago, he thought he should probably relocate and seek employment somewhere else because nearly 14–15 of his films had failed. At that time, he also mentioned that one of his friends was a resident of Canada, and he advised Akshay to do the same if he was unsuccessful in India.
