Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan are two filmmakers who have certainly given Bollywood some really larger than life films. And now the Om Shanti Om director feels this trend is dying in the industry.
The choreographer-director, who was speaking at the Big Cine Expo, said, “You can’t say there’s no content in event films. Rohit makes films that are completely enjoyable. They have a social message, they’re not vulgar. The same goes for me. It’s just that we like to make larger-than-life films, the trend of which is fading away slowly.”
Farah Khan, who has announced a collaboration with Golmaal director Rohit Shetty, feels that she and Rohit are two of a kind. Elaborating the same notion Farah said, “People are making big movies but they are scared to make these big musicals because filmmakers constantly feel that if they will do something (in that genre) then critics will criticize them. But Rohit (Shetty) and I are the two filmmakers who want to make happy and entertaining movies like the ones we used to watch in our childhood.”
While speculation has been rift that the duo is planning a remake to Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini’s iconic Satte Pe Satta, and Hrithik Roshan has been approached for the films lead Farah has responded to the same.
The filmmaker quipped, “We haven’t announced anything from our side in terms of what kind of film we will make and which hero we have taken in the film. It is all created by the media, so you (media) should also tell me how much money my movie is going to earn at the box-office!”
