Director Amit Ravindernath Sharma is currently enjoying the success of his recent release Badhaai Ho. He recently gave an interview to a leading daily where he said that there has to be a positive approach of a filmmaker while writing or directing a particular movie.
A moderate budget film, Badhaai Ho has crossed Rs. 50 crores at the box office, in its first week of release.
A humorous family drama Badhaai Ho revolves around an old married couple becoming parents again. The movie stars Ayushmann Khurrana who plays son of the elderly couple who finds out that his mother is pregnant with her third child.
On Tuesday, in an interview filmmaker Amit Ravindernath Sharma was asked if he ever anticipated this level of overwhelming response to his movie to which he said, “You can’t write or direct a film thinking that whether it will work. When you write a film, you hope that it will do well. There has to be a positive demand or approach that the film on which we are working on should do well.”
“There was positive response all around when we narrated the story of the film to the people who were supposed to associate with the film,” filmmaker added to his statement. He also mentioned that if someone has doubts about their own work, then there isn’t a point of doing the same, one has to be sure of what they’re making and presenting to the audience.
Its Amit’s dream for his film to reach the 100 crore club now after it has already touched 50 crores until now. “It is like a dream. When we were writing, we didn’t think about whether this film will enter in 50 crore or 100 crore club. We were only concentrating on making a good film.”
Sharma also talked about his upcoming project in the same interview, and we are equally excited. “I am working on a film which will be a footballer’s biopic and we will start shooting from next year. As of now, we don’t have dates of the actors who are working in it. We will make an official announcement soon,” he revealed.
Along with Ayushmann Khuranna, one of the top ten superhit movies of this year, Badhaai Ho also features Sanya Malhotra, Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao in lead roles. It’s almost been a week since this movie hit big screens and it surely is a must watch for everybody who still hasn’t!
