Known to be the ‘Showman’ of Bollywood, Subhash Ghai has directed some iconic films over the years. ��However, the veteran filmmaker feels the younger actors do not acknowledge him and that is why they would not attend his birthday party.
Speaking to��DNA India, Ghai said, “I guess the GenNext doesn’t want to acknowledge me till I give a big hit (laughs). ��For them it doesn’t matter what you did in the past. ��They don’t realise that in Hollywood, many good directors are above 70 years. ��They are not my friends and also for most of them like Sonam (Kapoor), Sonakshi (Sinha) and Tiger (Shr0ff), I am an uncle. ��They must think��inke saath thodi��dance karenge. But they give me love and respect when they meet me and that’s enough for me. ��It’s not necessary that they have to come for every event of mine. I have done and seen it all.”
Ghai last directed ‘Kaanchi: The Unbreakable’ (2014), which launched new faces to the industry. ��Unfortunately, the film failed to live up to expectations. ��As a director, Ghai’s last success at the Box Office was ‘Taal’ (1999), after which he has gone through a low phase professionally.
