Bollywood Blind Item – February 2020 – 2
This film has gotten itself in controversy even before its release. The controversy happened because of something the actress decided to do or rather who she showed her support for.
That aside, the controversy is not that powerful to make people stop watching her film. The only thing that could have happened is if powerful people stopped her film from playing in certain theaters.
But the thing is, those who watched it said it was not that appealing. The film was not as “fun” as they thought it would be, it was too raw. Well, it’s a film about a tragic incident so it can’t possibly be fun, right? And let’s not forget, the actress’ performance was also talked about.
Other than the “raw” storyline, people also thought it was a bad idea to release the film right after the controversy and some more, opposite a big budget film. This disappointing box office result comes after the director gave one of the biggest hits of her career 2 years ago. So naturally, she must be upset about the response this film got.
Anyways, so the film didn’t really work out and ended up with abysmal box office results, which brings us to this blind item from Mumbai Mirror.
THIS acclaimed director is not pleased with a recent film’s box-office performance. Blaming the production house for the cold-go, the filmmaker has apparently told the company it should have delayed its release and changed the distribution strategy.
We say it’s not cool for someone of this stature to pass the buck. After all, success is not final and failure is not fatal.
Director: Meghna Gulzar
