People produce movies for their friends to watch: Rakesh Roshan on the decline of Bollywood

According to Rakesh Roshan, a “huge chunk of the public” is no longer able to relate to the themes chosen by the filmmakers. In a recent interview, the seasoned actor and director, who turned 73 on Tuesday, discussed the reasons Bollywood movies were struggling at the box office. Rakesh Roshan also discussed how it was now exceedingly challenging to “become a superstar” because songs had lost importance in movies.

Songs are an essential component of movies, according to Rakesh, who has directed successful films like Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai (2000) and Koi… Mil Gaya (2003), both of which starred his son, actor Hrithik Roshan. He added that Bollywood should take notes from “Pushpa or RRR” because “every song” from the pan-India films ‘became a craze’. He added that Bollywood filmmakers were trying to make ‘so-called modern cinema’ but it works with ‘only one percent of the population’.

Rakesh said to Bollywood Hungama, “People are making movies that they and their friends enjoy to watch, hence that’s why Hindi films aren’t doing well at the box office. They choose topics that only a very small portion of the audience will find interesting. A sizable portion of the audience cannot identify with it. Another significant issue is that the songs are leaving the movie. There were formerly 6 songs. The actors would become celebrities thanks to these tunes… Currently, it’s quite difficult to become a superstar. You hear Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan’s music… Their songs used to be such a crucial component of the film, and they had a major impact on how successful their movie ended up being. Consider Pushpa or RRR for example. Each and every song became a craze. So, we should learn (from their success).”

Rakesh added that, in contrast to Hindi films, Telugu and Tamil movies continued to offer “rooted storylines” in a “highly upgraded fashion,” all the while keeping in mind the “commercial sensibility.” Although Baahubali and RRR featured “beaten-to-death plots,” and Baahubali was strikingly similar to his 1995 film Karan Arjun, he claimed that these movies’ songs were “larger-than-life,” and as a result, “people were persuaded” to watch them.

Additionally, Rakesh mentioned how past movie promotions “began with songs” before the trailer was unveiled. The director continued, saying that the frantic and multi-city advertisements for recent movies “served no purpose.” He referred to it as “wasting money” and claimed there was “no point” in doing it. He continued, saying that if a movie’s teaser or trailer hadn’t been successful, “such promotional travels were unnecessary’. Rakesh also spoke about Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which was also heavily promoted, yet worked at the box office.

Sunny Deol in the middle of a storm: Film producers accuse her of lying, cheating, and forging

Actor-MP Sunny Deol is the target of alarming accusations of cheating, extortion, and forgery made by film producer Sorav Gupta (of Sundawn Entertainment Pvt Ltd). The real estate developer turned producer Gupta claimed in a press conference earlier this week that Sunny Deol had taken money from him in advance to film a movie in 2016, kept taking more money while he promised to start the project, but ultimately never finished it after his most recent movie, Gadar 2, became a big hit.

Gupta reveals that he agreed to pay 4cr to get Sunny Deol play the lead in his movie in 2016. We paid him 1cr in advance, but he chose to film for Poster Boys instead of beginning my film (2017) as an alternative. Despite my repeated requests for more money, my ₹2.55cr is currently in Sunny ji’s account. In addition, he forced me to hire an executive producer, book Filmistaan studio, and pay money to another filmmaker, according to Gupta.

Additionally, the producer claims that in 2023, Deol falsified a contract with his business. He reveals, “After reading the agreement, we were shocked to learn that the beech wala had been changed. Jahan par fees ka amount ₹4cr ko badha kar ₹8cr kar diya aur profit to ₹2cr kar diya.”

During the same press conference, filmmaker Suneel Darshan, who is best known for films like Janwar (1999) and Andaaz (2003), defended Gupta and claimed that he had experienced the same problem with Sunny Deol. “Sunny Deol only paid a portion of the rights to my 1996 film Ajay, which she obtained for international release. The remaining amount was never sent,” Darshan continues. “Eventually, Sunny asked me to collaborate on a project with him, telling me to “have faith in me, help me out,” and obtaining payment from me once more.

Under condition of anonymity, an industry source informs us that Deol has a reputation for breaking deals he signs with multiple producers. He has a long history of stirring up problems. A producer in Mumbai built a massive set for a movie named Ram Janmbhumi, which Sunny had handed him the bound script for. Sunny agreed to pay ₹5cr for the project. However, after delivering a hit film, he later declined to visit the sets and wanted ₹25cr in remuneration (Gadar 2, 2023).

Gupta discloses that he has reported Deol to the police. On April 30, the police sent [Deol] a notice. According to Gupta, his staff sent a letter stating that he was out of town on the day he was supposed to appear.
