All set to embark on the release of his next project, film maker Milan Luthria recently caught up with the media and spoke about how the Indian Film Industry has developed on from the typical drama style of story telling.
“Drama has reduced (from Bollywood films). Heroes’ machoism, heroines’ elegance (‘nazakat’) and the fear of villains have been diluted…International cinema is also going towards period drama…It is larger than life. It appeals to me personally,” Business Standard reports Luthria explaining.
He went on to say, “Audience don’t look at the period that the film is set in, but at the story.”
As well as his last two films ‘The Dirty Picture’ (2011) and ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ (2010), Luhthria’s next titled ‘Baadshaho’ will also be set in the 1970’s. When asked about his interest in this period, he explained, “I don’t have a fixation with the period. It (‘Baadshaho’ also set in the 1970 era) is a coincidence.”
Releasing on 1st September, ‘Baadshaho’ will star Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D’Cruz and Esha Gupta.
