Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has made a statement that is sure to capture everyone’s attention. He mentioned that nobody in Bollywood liked Yash’s KGF 2. Thus, he is left confused about the film’s Box Office success.
“When a film you didn’t like does such numbers, you’ll be confused and you don’t know what to do,” RGV told Bollywood Hungama. He then claimed that a huge Bollywood director told him that he ‘couldn’t watch the film beyond half an hour,’ even after his fifth attempt. The director then went back to working on his script, Ram Gopal Varma claimed.
“There’s a line in Hollywood, ‘You can argue with content, but you can’t argue with success’! Hence, whether or not you liked it, you can’t ignore its success,” the filmmaker said, but not before claiming that KGF 2 and The Kashmir Files have f**ked up everything. “They are the opposite ends of the spectrum,” he shared.
While KGF 2’s success can be credited to how huge the first part was, The Kashmir Files, on the other hand, was hailed as a movement. KGF 2 became the highest grossing film of the year while The Kashmir Files is by far the highest grossing Bollywood film of the year.
The Kashmir Files started with lower screens at the Box Office but soon, people went to watch the movie and the screens increased. By the end of week two, the movie had collected a massive sum at the Box Office, making history, especially since COVID-19 affected films.
Interestingly, Ram Gopal Varma had criticized KGF 2 over Twitter when the film released in theatres. He called the movie a ‘dark cloud’ and added that KGF 2 is an enormous tree under whose shadow, no other tree is growing.
