Kiccha Sudeep draws comparison between struggling Virat Kohli and Bollywood films' failure
Kannada movie superstar Kiccha Sudeep, who is promoting his upcoming movie, Vikrant Rona, has come up with an unpredicted thought on the current dying situation of the Hindi film cinema. He also compared it to the struggling form of the former Indian skipper, Virat Kohli.
The 50-year-old Kannada actor talked the box office success of South films rather than Hindi films at a press conference. He emphasised that Bollywood could not have developed as it has without a foundation of high-quality content. In the same way that a bad day on the field cannot erase Virat Kohli's records, a rough patch at the box office cannot erase past success.
He added that there are a lot of films that are made every year, so some work and some don't. Kiccha also said that if Hindi cinema had not been making good movies with good actors, how could they sustain for a long time?
Drawing a comparison between the Hindi film industry and the form of Virat Kohli, he said, "It's just a matter of time. It's like Virat Kohli being out of form for a while. Are you going to take away his records? It doesn't work that way... Every industry is standing by its potential."
Notably, Salman Khan also attended the promotion event for Vikrant Rona in Mumbai. However, in the past few months, movies from South film industry, like RRR, Pushpa, and KGF: Chapter 2, have achieved tremendous success as compared to Bollywood films. Fans have also liked the South films compared to Bollywood movies.
Salman Khan also spoke on this topic. He said, "There’s no formula to making a blockbuster. We all try and make the best film, we want it to reach everyone. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. There’s no formula to this, that something will work 100 percent."
Anup Bhandari is the director of Kiccha Sudeep starer, Vikrant Rona. Actors such as Neetha Ashok and Nirup Bhandari will also play key roles in the movie. This pan-global 3D drama will be available in various languages like Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Hindi, Arabic, Russian, German, Mandarin, and English.
