Nawazuddin Siddiqui says 'salahiyat gayi tel lene' amid recent big budget hits

New Delhi: 

Bollywood Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is anticipating the release of his film Heropanti 2 also starring Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon, is not happy with the success of big-budget films. Saying that these films only create awe and shock, he stated this is not real cinema. In an interview, Nawazuddin said that these are visual experiences. He added that he still feels that there has been no change and superficial entertainment trumps skills in films. Nawazuddin also said that such big-budget films take over theatres which left him wondering if small budget films will get theatre releases. The actor further thanked OTT platforms for saving film culture and said that’s where you can watch good films. Talking about his versatile characters in every film, the actor said that I did not come here to beat around the same bush. I only chose this field for the distinction and the variety it provides. 

Indian cinema has been flourishing post pandemic. The box office collections of recent films have shattered every record that there has ever been. What started with Pushpa: The Rise was followed by RRR and is now taken forward by KGF: Chapter 2. KGF 2, which released on April 14, earned ₹134.50 crore on its opening day. It crossed the ₹700 crore mark in worldwide earnings as it completed one week of its release. RRR entered the ₹1,000 crore club worldwide within 16 days of its release. Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files, released in March, became the first Hindi film to cross the ₹250 crore mark at the box office post pandemic. 

He also replied when asked about playing lead character in Thackeray. He said, “I don’t think it’s changing…I played lead in Manto too but how many people are there to watch it? I thought after pandemic of two years people might have watched world cinema and there will be a change. But jiss tarah ki picture abhi hit ho rahi hain aisa lagta ke salahiyat gayi tel lene, yaha entertain karo aur superficial level pe entertain karo logo ko (The films that are being hits now, it looks like skills be damned, entertain people on superficial levels).”
