We are eternally grateful for the love Karthikeya 2 has recieved I had all believed in this film , because when you do good work with an artistic touch it’s bound to create wonders “

Coming from Tollywood Nikhil on receiving immense love for the movie said , “ Today the terms like bollywood, tollywood are not being used its all about Indian Cinema , that’s a great opportunity for actors like us . We are grateful that people are going to the theatres and watching our movie”

Karthikeya 2 is now termed as a content driven film as it receives both critic and audience appreciation , “Whatever is good for the country and its people should come out and should be told to the world” , Said Abhishek Agarwal .Anupam Kher added , “I believe cinema of any country should showcase the truth, that makes us proud of being part of our culture we got distracted to hollywood culture but the its very important to understand the culture of your country and how the audience will like it”

To which Nikhil added , “Today being politically correct is very important but that doesn’t mean we demean someone in anyway everyone should be treated equally and today’s generation has understood the thought that the country is important. Our film is not made for any particular region or culture its made for the country which is established way before than 1947 , termed as bharat varsh “

Anupam Kher on content being the king said , “If we tend to please everyone we won’t be able to please anyone and would end up completing a project and not a film . We are participants of the required change in the industry” To which Nikhil added , “The hero of the film is the story , if there’s no story a movie with a superstar also may fail at the box office “

Director Chandoo Mondeti said , “ I am feeling more pressurised to deliver good work now i never expected such an overwhelming response , we want to blend our culture and heritage into a story and present it to our youth”

Anupam Kher on being fearless and putting his point straight across said , “ I am friends with everyone , I am grateful for all the film makers but I want to be popular on my ownself and that can happen only by being truthful so i have nothing to be scared of “

On exploring new content driven movies he added , “When I stopped working with people who I used to work with I saw a new horizon on films , so when pushed against the wall you find new avenues “

Commenting on the recent statements made by Anurag Kashyap on The Kashmir Files and Oscar Lobby Kher said , “ Nobody can stop that film , the atrocities that the pandits have faced and the love that movie has garnered cannot it should be presented at global level . So it’s all good and play if the movie is nominated for oscars or not “
