Will these mutual funds help me to make Rs 50 lakh in 10 years?

I am investing Rs 6,000 every month through SIPs. I am planning to invest for 10 years and want to get the maximum returns. I hope to create a corpus of Rs 50 lakh. I am investing in the following schemes:
Axis Bluechip Fund: Rs 1,000
Axis Growth Opportunity Fund: Rs 2,500
Axis Mid Cap Fund: Rs 1,500
Axis Small Cap Fund: Rs 1,000

I have been investing since March 2022. My risk appetite is aggressive.

We typically ask long-term investors to choose their equity mutual funds based on their investment horizons and risk profile. For example, we ask investors who want to create wealth without too much volatility and risk to invest in large cap mutual funds. If the investor is ready to take a little more risk, he can invest in flexi cap funds. Investing a small amount in too many schemes won’t help you to diversify meaningfully or maximize returns. It seems, you are not clear about the basics and chose some schemes from a fund house. If you don’t know much about investing in mutual funds, seek the help of a mutual fund advisor.

Assuming an annual return of 13%, you need to invest around Rs 21,500 every month to create Rs 50 lakh in 10 years. It seems, you have unrealistic expectations from your mutual fund investments. Please don’t treat your mutual funds like a lottery. You can create wealth over a long period if you invest regularly over a long period in a disciplined manner. However, if you chase returns and take unnecessary risk, you may lose money.
