Johnny Lever discusses Cirkus' failure
Johnny Lever is among the go-to comedy actors in Bollywood, who has a solid body of work in the Hindi film industry. Recently the veteran comedy actor opened up about the changing nature of comedy in Hindi films and the heartwarming love that he continues to receive from his fans all over the world. The comedian also spoke on Rohit Shetty's family entertainer Cirkus which did not do well at the box office. The comedian discussed the comedy's rejection by audiences.
Speaking about the films poor performance he said , “Every director thinks well about the film, nobody wants to do nuksaan (loss) because they invest heavily in the film — money wise and emotion wise, a lot of effort goes into making films. In Cirkus, humne jo kaam ki, humaare part ki taarif huiee (whatever work we did was appreciated)."
He added, "There could have been some mistakes in the film in totality that people didn’t like because of which the film didn’t work. What can one do about that? But one thing I know for sure that people look forward to comedy, people expect it from us all the time."
Johnny, who is otherwise quite choosy with the kind of work he picks or the filmmakers he works with, he says it was time for him to experiment and that’s why he chose to do a web series on OTT. Johnny will soon be seen in Pop Kaun, a comedy web-series that will stream on Disney+ Hotstar
