"Bollywood is in bad shape again", Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri on Films not doing great at Box Office!
In his most recent tweet, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri stated that Bollywood is once again in "poor shape." In response to a recent box office report, he remarked that Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan's commercial success couldn't be duplicated by movies like Bholaa, Shehzada, and Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar. In response to the report, Vivek stated that despite subpar performances, actors are joyfully paid "unrealistic and expensive rates."
Vivek wrote, “Bollywood is in bad shape. Again. Seems as if the entire industry is happy giving unrealistic and exorbitant fees to stars who can’t even guarantee an opening. Most money is wasted in vanity and lifestyle of stars. What’s going wrong?”
Vivek Agnihotri has said during The Carvaka Podcast, "Pathaan worked purely because of the charisma and fan following of Shah Rukh, the way he marketed it and the way he took it on his shoulders that ‘it is my film and I am responsible for it’, which is pretty good.”
“I also think that some credit should also go to people who were making stupid statements against the film and people who were unnecessarily protesting and asking for boycott. These are different people from regular ‘boycott Bollywood gang’. There is one kind that is always saying ‘boycott Bollywood’ for everything for many years. These were new players in the market and there was no need for them to do this. There were some violent factors who were saying we will burn this and burn that and that, I think, also contributed to this. And of course, our media channels,” he added.
