Filmmaker Kunal Kohli, the director of films like ‘Hum Tum’ and ‘Fanaa’, has mocked Bollywood celebrities for attending reality and comedy shows – when the stars of India’s biggest blockbuster ‘Bahubali 2’ didn’t make national television appearances – nor did they answer “silly Q&A’s” in various interviews that are said to be a part of film promotions.
“So the stars of Bahubali 2 didn’t go on reality & comedy shows & make an ass of themselves doing silly things & answering silly q&a’s” Kunal said.
The director also made a valid point when he questioned why people are only discussing the record-breaking numbers – but not the content of ‘Bahubali 2’ which is getting those numbers.
“The juggernaut of Bahubali 2 rolls on. As amazing as the numbers are. Why aren’t people discussing the content which made the numbers?” he said in his second tweet.
‘Bahubali 2’ became the first Indian film to cross the 1000 crore mark on Sunday, just 10 days after its theatrical release. The marketing spend was less than the money that gets spent on marketing low to medium budget Hindi films – yet the Hindi version of the film will eventually break the record of ‘Dangal’ to become the highest Hindi grosser of all time.
