Rakesh Roshan Criticizes Filmmakers For ‘Drifting Away From Roots’ While Talking About Bollywood’s Lean Run At Box Office

Veteran actor-turned-filmmaker Rakesh Roshan is the latest celebrity to weigh in on Bollywood’s poor run at the box office. The ace filmmaker, who is currently busy working on the next instalment of the popular ‘Krrish’ franchise, praised South filmmakers for ‘sticking to the roots’ while sharing his opinion on the recent success of South films like ‘RRR’, ‘Pushpa’ and ‘KGF: Chapter 2’.

In a recent interaction with Bollywood Hungama, Roshan said, “If you see films like RRR and Baahubali, they have beaten-to-death stories. Baahubali is very similar to Karan Arjun. But it was presented on a bigger scale. Even the songs were larger-than-life and hence people were enticed. Aur hamare Bollywood filmmakers ko pata nahin kya ho gaya hai. They have drifted away from the roots of Indianness.”

Furthermore, he continued, “People are making films that they and their friends like to watch. They are picking subjects that appeal to a very minuscule section of the audience. A big chunk of the audience cannot relate to it.”

Meanwhile, according to various reports making rounds on the internet, Rakesh Roshan won’t be helming the next ‘Krrish’ instalment but would be closely associated with the project. With the pandemic affecting the audience’s choice, Hrithik is reported to be looking out for a filmmaker with a modern vision.
