Actor Kriti Sanon says she doesn’t believe that Bollywood has reduced making larger-than-life ‘masala’ entertainers.
“I don’t think we have stopped making those big, commercial entertainers, it is just that we haven’t had those many releases. There is a lineup of films, all blockbuster potential, waiting to come. We feel like that because in that short period of time, few South films that came and made a mark, which was fantastic. These films do really well, they clock in huge numbers as there is a huge audience for it. So, as long as the audience is there, these films won’t ever go out of style, they will keep getting made,” Sanon told PTI.
“It is a healthy time for all. Today a lot of bilingual, trilingual films are being made which earlier wasn’t the case. Technicians would still work across the industries, many of them during my first film were from the South. But for actors it’s happening now, which is great,” she added.
“It had all the elements, action, comedy, drama, thrill which worked for me. It is smartly done and within that world, I feature as this urban girl, a role I hadn’t played in a while. She is a gutsy girl who enters this poles-apart world to make a film on a gangster who can kill her any moment. I found that hook very interesting.
“What also worked for me was that my chemistry with Akshay in the film is different from what we had done in Housefull 4, it is an entirely new space so there was a chance to do something I hadn’t done before,” she added.
