There’s no reason a film fails other than its no good content, Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor said on Wednesday as he opened up about his film’s poor performance. last outing. “Shamshera”. Ranbir Kapoor was speaking at the press conference here to promote his latest release “Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva”with his actress wife Alia Bhatt.
When asked if he thinks Hindi movies have been treated unfairly lately, Ranbir Kapoor said, “I’ll give the example of my own movie. I won’t talk about other movies. There are a few weeks away, my film ‘Shamshera’ has been freed. I didn’t feel any negativity.” “The movie didn’t make it to the box office, it’s probably because the audience didn’t like the movie. Ultimately, it’s about the content,” he added.
In recent times, mainstream Hindi movies like Ranveer Singh’s “Jayeshbhai Jordaar”by Akshay Kumar “Bachchhan Paandey“, “Samrat Prithviraj” and “Raksha Bandhan”with Aamir Khan-starring “Laal Singh Chaddha”failed to register big numbers at the box office.
Ranbir Kapoor, known for films such as “Rockstar”, “Barfi! » and “Sanju”said audiences will only be entertained if they receive good content.
“Who doesn’t want to go to the movies to experience a different emotion, to be moved by the characters, to have fun, to laugh, to cry and to feel something? We all want to feel that. If a movie doesn’t work, there’s no another reason. It’s because the content isn’t good,” he added.
“Brahmastra”directed by his frequent collaborator and close friend Ayan Mukerji, has been in the works for a long time and has faced several delays for various reasons.
Ranbir Kapoor said no one, including his father, late movie icon Rishi Kapoor, understood what it takes to make a movie like “Brahmastra”, which was put together with a huge budget and is loaded with visual effects.
“It’s been so long… Nobody really understood what it takes to make a movie like this because nobody really did that, especially the people you know.
“The movie has been going on for so many years. I remember when my dad was alive I used to lie and say I was shooting ‘Brahmastra’. I would hide it and say I was shooting for another movie,” said the said l 39-year-old actor.
He also credited Ayan Mukerji, the director of his two blockbusters “Wake Up Sid” (2008) and “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” (2013), for his growth as an actor.
“I have known Ayan since 2008 when he told “Wake Up Sid” volume. I didn’t know him before that. He is someone who has just come to tell his whole story. He was sitting on the floor and he was narrating the movie for me, saying it would only take an hour but it would take 5 hours to narrate this movie.
“I really felt the energy of a young filmmaker and I was like, ‘Wow, this guy really has a story to tell.’ He is passionate about every word, every character and I could feel that energy. I think art is about energy. You have to feel the energy in other people. Kapoor said he was aware that he wouldn’t have another opportunity to make a film like “Brahmastra” Again.
“It’s not like that after ‘Brahmastra’, I will only make these kinds of films. I know I will never have such an opportunity again. I hope that in the future, I will have other opportunities to introduce other different characters that I can play,” he added.
“Brahmastra, first part: Shiva”, which also features megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy, is a joint production of Star Studios, Dharma Productions, Prime Focus and Starlight Pictures.
The film will be released in theaters in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam on Friday.
