Superstars Aamir Khan with his Dhoom 3 and Salman Khan with 'Kick' box office collections have become the sole criteria on which to judge the success of a film and that crucial question was put to Akshay Kumar on Entertainment's release.

Check out what he says in his own words.

There is no point in expecting anything in this life; we have to play whatever cards we are dealt. I have never and will never put a price or pressure and definitely never an assumption on any of my films. Id be a fool if I did, every time I release something, and if it does better or worse than my estimate, it would only make me look ill-informed about what I do, for no-one can truly judge what any audience accepts or trashes on a week to week basis.

There are some things that people just cannot get me to do and playing the predicting game is one of them. What people need to remember about me is, Id still make films whether only a handful of people went to see them, or the whole country.

But as for my honest predictions, all Im saying is, everybody needs ENTERTAINMENT; ENTERTAINMENT is all we need (smiles).
