Mukesh Bhatt Believes Bollywood Is Trading And Not Making Films Anymore

Mukesh Bhatt shared his thoughts on Bollywood’s dry run right now.

Indian film producer and actor Mukesh Bhatt is renowned for producing several Bollywood films. The brother of Mahesh Bhatt has produced critically acclaimed films like Jurm in 1990, Aashiqui again in the same year, and Sadak among others. He is well known to produce a lot of Emraan Hashmi films, namely Raaz, Footpath, Zeher, Gangster, Woh Lamhe, Tum Mile, and more. Coming from the time when films used to win hearts with the story and became hits, Mukesh Bhatt shared his thoughts on Bollywood’s dry run right now.

Post lockdown many movies were released but only a handful could mint good money while others drowned. Meanwhile, movies like KGF 2, RRR, and Pushpa from the South film industry have earned a whopping amount. In recent times only Gangubai Kathiawadi, Kashmir Files, and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 have caught the audience and registered them on a high level at Box Office. However, movies including Bollywood biggies Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh, and Kangana Ranaut failed for Bachchhan Paandey, Jayeshbhai Jordaar, and Dhakkad respectively. 

Mukesh Bhatt believes that in Bollywood nobody is making a film anymore, they’re all trading. Talking about the unlucky streak of Bollywood movies Bhatt said in a conversation with Bollywood Hungama, “The narrative must change. Due to the pandemic, the OTT has come to the forefront. Audiences are now aware of good kinds of content. You can’t provide them with content that was being given to them before the pandemic. We are done with that kind of narrative. We have to change with time. The generation is changing and if you don’t change, you’ll be left behind. What’s happening in Bollywood right now is that people are making setups, not films. Setups don’t work, films work”. 

He added: “Nobody is making a movie anymore. They are all trading. Itne mein bana lo, itne mein becho aur itna paisa andar karo. It’s a con game happening. We used to never do that. We’ll be like ‘Kahani excite karti hai. Toh chalo banate hai’! That imaandari is gone. (They’re just discussing budgets and how to sell a film).

Take a look at how much movies have made at the Box Office. Directed by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri ‘The Kashmir Files’ earned over Rs 250 crore at the box office. Aneez Bazmee’s film Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has roughly reached the 175 crores mark. However, Dhakkad was announced to be the biggest flop and on another hand, Samrat Prithviraj made on a budget of Rs 200 crore could barely earn Rs 62 crore. Meanwhile, pan India films KGF 2 and RRR crossed the Rs 1000 crore mark at the global box office.
