His last few films may not have done well at the box office but actor Akshay Kumar says he has seen a rougher patch earlier in his career when he delivered 14 flops.

Except for 'Desi Boyz', Akshay's recent outings including Priyadarshan's 'Khatta Meetha', Vipul Shah's 'Action Replay', Farah Khan's 'Tees Maar Khan', Anees Bazmee's 'Thank You' did not fare well with the audience, but the actor is least perturbed with flops.

"Flops don't bother me, I just work harder in my next film. Every human being has to go from high to low and from low to high. If you understand that, then you will never have a problem," Akshay said.

"Seven years ago, I delivered 14 flops... big deal! You just keep on working," the 44-year-old actor added.

At a time when actors like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn and others are vying for Rs 100-crore mark on the opening weekend at BO, Akshay says records will keep on happening and breaking.

"I was the first guy whose film 'Singh is Kinng' raked in Rs 70-80 crores but soon some other film came in and the record was broken. That benchmark is going to increase every year, today it is Rs 100 crores, tomorrow it will Rs 150 or 200 crores, one day after five years, Rs 400 crores would seem less. So it (records) will keep breaking," he said.

However, Akshay has an eventful year this time, with Sajid Khan's multi-starrer comic-caper, 'Housefull 2', besides Prabhudeva-directed 'Rowdy Rathore', where he would be seen as a action hero, Shirish Kunder's fantasy adventure film 'Joker', action-comedy 'Khiladi 786' and a heist drama, 'Special Chabbis'.
