Kangana tweeted 10 times, is there displeasure with ‘face value’ in Bollywood?
In fact, Kangana returned to Twitter on Tuesday, tweeting that the film industry is “idiot”. Here the success of the art project is reportedly measured by the earnings of the films i.e. box office collections. Kangana’s comment comes on the day of the release of Shah Rukh Khan’s much-awaited film Pathan. Film critics believe that Shahrukh’s film can break records on Wednesday. In 10 tweets one after the other, Kangana has also mentioned Shah Rukh’s old film DDLJ and her movie Gangster.
What did Kangana say on box office collection
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday morning, Kangana wrote, “The film industry is so cheap and crude that whenever they want to project the success of an effort/creation/art, they mention box office collections to your face.” It seems as if art has no other purpose than earning. According to Kangana, such an attitude exposes the small mindedness of the film industry and their deprived life.
film industry not for profit
Kangana, who has proved her mettle in films like Manikarnika and Queen, also said that cinema is not made for “major economic gains” like other industries. This is the reason why artists are worshipped. Initially the art blossomed in the temples and gradually it spread to literature/theatre and eventually to cinema, he said.
Do not work to pollute the industry
According to Kangana Ranaut, film is an industry, but unlike other billion/trillion dollar businesses, its main motive is not economic profit. That is why art or artists are worshipped, not industrialists or billionaires. He said, even if artistes are involved in polluting the art and culture in the country, they should act judiciously and not shamelessly in the industry. Of course, Kangana did not take anyone’s name, but its implications will definitely be drawn.
When did 100 crores come in the box office collection?
He spoke eloquently on the collection of films as well. Kangana said, it is interesting to see when and how the industry became obsessed with money. “We don’t know how much Pyaasa/Guide/Shree 420, counted among the great classic films, made. Growing up, I never saw such films. DDLJ or Hum Aapke Hain Koun’s weekend collections looked like Thappad. I did Gangster, I was told the film is a hit. No one told me about the box office collections, I didn’t know how much money films like Fashion or Once Upon a Time in Mumbai (OUTIM) made. All I knew was that the movies were hits. Where there are numbers, there are toxic comparisons. Somewhere from 2012-13 I started hearing 100cr too much. Around this time Queen did a business of 85cr in India.
Is there a game of showing fake numbers in Bollywood?
Queen became a modern classic but it was not enough, says Kangana. It can be seen how the system corrupts you. Over time this trend has become so toxic that now major studios pay commercial websites to show fake numbers. Spend crores and buy their own tickets. According to Kangana, this digit drama started only a decade back, no person should show how much money they have or how much money their film has earned. Please don’t compromise when it comes to movies. You made good money for yourself, now work on your next project. Even if you have not continued to work.
