Arjun Kapoor slams critics and says that he works for audience, not for them!
As we all know that Chetan Bhagat’s novel, Half Girlfriend has been converted into a movie starring Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. The movie released in the theatres last Friday and has managed an average collection at the box-office. There have been mixed reactions from the audience but the film has been given very bad reviews from the critics.
It was at the Kashish Mumbai International Queer Film Festival 2017, where the lead actor Arjun was asked as to what he feels about such bad reviews. To this, Arjun responded by saying that he doesn’t work for critics but works for the audience. He also said that he feels good when the audience doesn’t go in the theatres with a preconceived notion.
IANS quoted him saying, “Each individual has a different point of view and I am no one who will change their opinion. Most of the time people (critics) want to see a certain type of film, but I feel, people should watch a film with an open mind just the way the audience watches it.”
He was also quoted saying, “The audience is more open to giving the film space and time to enjoy what it is meant for rather than having preconceived notions. I feel the audience is the most important part of filmmaking because at the end of the day, you are making a film for them and not for a limited bunch of people who call themselves critics.”
He also said, “I feel really happy when my film works at the box office, because eventually, good box office numbers is the barometer of success for any film. If people are buying tickets at the box office, then why should I feel negativity around me? I thrive on positivity in life rather than negativity.”
