Vivek Agnihotri After the film ‘The Kashmir Files’, he has been in constant discussion. Vivek’s film has done a great job at the box office. The filmmaker, who has openly expressed his opinion, recently spoke on many problems and many issues related to Bollywood, including Anurag Kashyap’s comment on ‘The Kashmir Files’. Vivek says that errogance has affected the perception of the audience about favorite actors. Also told why Bollywood movies are not playing.
Recently, the ‘Do Bara’ director had said that I would like Vivek Agnihotri’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’ not to be sent for Oscars. Talking to ETimes on this, Vivek Agnihotri said that ‘I want to talk about Anurag Kashyap that either you are very smart or you have some personal resentment with me. Either you are naive or you have a political agenda. It is okay to wish for a film to go to the Oscars, but no one can say that such a film should not go to the Oscars’.
Vivek slams Anurag Kashyap
Vivek further said that ‘You say that political film should not go for Academy Awards and you want ‘RRR’ to go in its place. But when you say that ‘The Kashmir Files’ should not be sent for Oscars, you are playing a political game. In such a situation, people who do not like me get involved in the discussion. Then you also get a biased jury. I felt it was more important for me to protect my film and the sentiments of all Kashmiri Hindus associated with the film.
no good story
When Vivek Agnihotri was asked if you think that ‘a section of the film industry is working against you,’ Vivek said, ‘Look, earlier the power was in the hands of many people. There were many independent producers. Money was coming from many sources. There was a lot of pressure on the filmmakers that the films do well at the box office because they used to take money on interest. When corporate studios came, they belonged to some big filmmakers. They don’t even know what a good story is. They started giving him big money, then OTT came and he started doing films. budget Started paying more than So if I am making a film for 150 crores and OTT is giving me 180 crores then why should I bother about the audience or anyone? Then there is brand endorsement. Stars even directors are making a film in 2-3 years. Meanwhile, brand endorsements are being done.
Targeting Karan Johar
Vivek said, ‘Karan Johar says that he has not made films for a long time but keeps doing reality shows, brand endorsements and fashion etc. 80 percent of the time is working other than films. This leads to errogance which completely disconnects from real life and starts ridiculing its own audience in that process. I will give you academic insight as to why movies are not playing. Look at the films released after Kovid, ‘Jayeshbhai Jordar’, ‘Shamshera’, ‘Do Bara’ are not talking about their films in any promotion. If the ego has increased so much, then films will also work in the same way.
