At the recent event, actor Chiranjeevi spoke about the failure of his film Acharya (2022) at the box office and the importance of a good script.
“After the pandemic, there’s this constant worry that people coming to theatres has come down. But this doesn’t mean they don’t want to come to theatres altogether. If the content is good, they will! Bimbisara, Sita Ramam and Kartikeya 2 are the best examples. If we don’t concentrate on the script and good content, the audience will reject the films,” Chiranjeevi said.
“The philosophy of cinema has changed. Bad films get rejected on the second day of their release. I am one of the victims of this trend (referring to Acharya‘s failure)”, he added.
The actor is awaiting the release of his film Godfather in October directed by Mohan Raj, starring Salman Khan and Nayanthara in the lead. It is the official remake of the Malayalam film Lucifer (2019), starring Mohanlal.
