2022 has been a tough year for Bollywood as only a few films like ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ and ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ have managed to excel at the box office. While the failure of several highly-anticipated Bollywood projects have left producers and filmmakers in a tough spot, actor Manoj Bajpayee shared his views on Bollywood’s dry spell at the box office in a media interaction recently.
In a conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Manoj Bajpayee 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.” Furthermore, he continued, “The pre-pandemic phase won’t be there but some new exciting phases of Hindi cinema will be there.”
While a couple of South films witnessed massive success at the box office, movie experts have been trying to figure out what is the missing factor that has resulted in Bollywood’s poor performance. Sharing his opinion on the same, Bajpayee continued, “We don’t lack anything. We have been entertaining for so many decades. Just course correction is needed. People are intelligent enough.”
Apart from the big screen, Bajpayee has been entertaining the audience with his stellar performance on the digital platform as well. With the first two seasons of ‘The Family Man’ turning out to be a huge success, the makers are expected to start filming for the third season soon. In addition to ‘The Family Man 3’, Bajpayee will also be seen in Rahul Chittella’s upcoming movie ‘Gulmohar’ co-starring Suraj Sharma, Simran Rishi Bagga, Sharmila Tagore and Amol Palekar.
