Ahead of its release, he recently sat down for a detailed interview where he spoke about Bollywood being all about a star-driven film. Scroll down for details.

Speaking to Bollywood Bubble, Vivek Agnihotri said, “The journey started long back when I made Buddha In A Traffic Jam. There was a time when I got sick with how Bollywood works and operates because everything was so star-driven that nobody cared about stories. Then came a phase when films meant only entertainment, entertainment and entertainment. I think that was a very very wrong signal we gave because if films were only entertainment, then there is no difference between films and circus.”

He added that Bollywood has become a laughing spot for people who are often told that their costumes are good and are copies. He, however feels nobody wants to copy the stories.

Vivek Agnihotri added, “I don’t have a grudge but I say things about Bollywood because I want Bollywood to change. I want Bollywood to reinvent itself and become the world’s best film industry. I want Bollywood to become a soft power for India and not a laughing stock. Everywhere you go, people are, ‘Ha ha ha, your songs are good, your costumes are beautiful and everyone wants to copy costumes, nobody wants to copy our story. So, with good concern I say that.”
