When Arshad Warsi Interviews, expect to be nothing less than sincere. Arshad was recently spotted in Bengaluru to open a café. There, he interacted with the media and was asked to comment on his latest film, Bachchhan Paandey, starring Akshay Kumar. The film was unable to exceed 50 million rupees a week.
The reporter described the film’s presentation at the box office as a “success”. Arshad laughed and joked, “Don’t lie, it’s not a success.” Then he continued: “It was a good movie, but unfortunately it happened, some things work, some don’t. I feel like it just went through the wrong patch, there were various things that didn’t make it as successful as it should be. It’s a big movie, he was supposed to make a lot more money, but it’s still not a loss, he covered his money. “
Further investigating whether the film’s underperformance was due to the OTT release boom, Arshad said: “No, I don’t think it’s the OTT effect. Okay, I have the answer, but I won’t say it. Let’s not get involved, it’s a different space. “
In a recent interview with the Hindustan Times, Akshay Kumar admitted that Bachchhan Paandey’s performance at the box office was influenced by the enduring success of The Kashmir Files. He said: “First of all, let me tell you that I am excited about the success of The Kashmir Files. It tells us about the power of cinema and that there is no formula for initial budgets and films that would guarantee success. It proves that the audience is who we make our films for, and when they give something, it just flies. Yes, I would like Bachchhan Paandey to be better than what he does, but I do not blame the Kashmir authorities for any of this. That movie is a storm and we came to his eye. “
Arshad also shared an update on the next season of his Asur streaming show. He said, “Asur is going out now, in June or July.” I find Asur 2 more exciting and exciting than Asur 1. When people liked Season 1 and Season 2, they will like it, which means it can become Season 3. ”
