The Bollywood industry is indeed going through a rough patch, with much-anticipated and big budgets films like Samrat Prithviraj, Laal Singh Chaddha, Raksha Bandhan, and others failing at the box office, it is now becoming hard to perform well at the theatres.

Manoj Bajpayee On Hindi Films Failing At Box Office

Apparently many big-budget and star-studded Hindi films like Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha and Akshay Kumar Raksha Bandhan among others have witnessed an extremely disappointing performance at the box office. Despite good reviews and scripts, many films are performing badly at the box office.

Commenting on the same, the Family Man actor Manoj Bajpayee opened up about the ongoing failure of Hindi films at the box office. In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, the actor said, “Sometimes, we make too much out of a bad phase. Cinema cannot die. Hindi cinema will not die. It will course-correct and come back to its normal self. The pre-pandemic phase won’t be there. Some new exciting phases of Hindi cinema will be there.”

While being asked about whether the industry was lacking something to attract the audience to the theatres, Manoj said, “No, we don’t lack anything. We have been entertaining for so many decades. Just course correction is needed. People are intelligent enough. Some new directions and fine actors are coming.”

Anees Bazmee On Hindi Films Failure At Box Office

Apart from Manoj Bajpayee, the Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 director Anees Bazmee recently opened up on the Hindi film’s failure at the box office. In an interview with E Times, he said, “We need to learn that we need to make good quality films. Whatever the audiences liked 5-10 years ago, they don’t like it anymore. Because they have global exposure. They have watched content from across the world during the pandemic while sitting at home for free. So now, if you want them to step out of their homes and buy a ticket to watch a film in the theatre, you need to give them something better.”

Akshay Kumar Opens Up On Films Failure At Box Office

While the Raksha Bandhan actor, Akshay Kumar recently opened up about the topic at the trailer launch of his film, Cuttputlli. He said, “No, see films are not working it is our fault, it is my fault. I have to make the changes, I have to understand what the audience wants, I want to do my changes, I want to dismantle my way and the way I think about what kind of films I should do. So nobody else is to be blamed but me.”

With films like Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, Taapsee Pannu’s Dobaaraa, and Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan among others failing at the box office, it would rather be fair to say that the Hindi film industry is indeed going through a ‘rough patch’.
