Ayushmann Khurrana who isn’t your conventional actor, shares that he doesn’t waste time wondering if a film has done badly or not, instead he focuses on the positives.
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Khurrana who has had a mixed spell of good and bad performing films at the cinema, says he goes back to the drawing board to see how he can make his next film a success. “Of course you feel bad when a film doesn’t do well. But as an artist, we can only give our best and make sure that our craft gets appreciated. Eventually, it has to connect with the masses,” says Khurrana who further added, “I feel, at the end of the day, it’s very subjective. For instance, Meri Pyaari Bindu, a lot of people liked it and some didn’t, so it got mixed reviews.”
Khurrana made his debut with ‘Vicky Donor’ (2012), which became a slow hit. However, inbetween a few films didn’t receive a warm response at the box office, such as ‘Nautanki Saala!’ (2013), ‘Bewakoofiyan’ (2014), and ‘Hawaizaada’ (2015). But fast forward to this year there was great response to two of his films this year – ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ (2017) and ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ (2017), despite ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ (2017) not doing as well.
Khurrana say he believes a films success depends on the release date. “In case of Meri Pyaari Bindu, it got stuck because of the release date. Baahubali 2 had just released and Hindi Medium was to release the next week. In such cases, you have to be confident about the content. I still believe our film could have done better. Shubh Mangal Saavdhan worked because it had a long run in theatres, as the next big release was Judwaa 2, which was only towards the end of the month. I guess we learn from our mistakes.”
