With her last two films having failed at the box office, Katrina Kaif recently caught up with the media to talk about it.
When the question of why ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ (2018) bombed at the box office, where she was seen in a small part, India Today reports her expressing, “Very honestly, I take ownership of everything I do. Thugs Of Hindostan was not my film. I’m not a big part of the film. So there wasn’t too much emotion invested in it.”
“The emotion I felt was more invested because they are really good friends of mine. Like, Adi (Aditya Chopra), I know how much he put into the film. Aamir (Khan) is dear to me. Victor (director Vijay Krishna Acharya) sir is dear to me. It went wrong. But why things go wrong, that we don’t know,” she went on to add.
Unlike’ Thugs Of Hindostan’ however, ‘Zero’ was a film in which she played a pivotal role, of an alcoholic actress, which also failed to bring in the masses. “In ‘Zero’, I was very nervous about how Aanand sir would wind up the film. Because I felt that was very tricky. He really went out there and in certain places, I think maybe it was a step too far which lost its relatability to the audience. That’s about it. There’s nothing more than that to analyse,” she explained about the Aanand L Rai directorial.
Kaif will next be seen opposite Salman Khan in ‘Bharat’, which she is hoping will have a much better reception.
