Since most big-budget films today easily surpass the 100 crore mark, it’s time to start the 200 crore trend in Bollywood says TV and film producer Ekta Kapoor.
“Today, every film does Rs 100 crore business.. even a film which earns Rs 95 crore, joins the Rs 100 crore club. So it’s time now to create a new trend. Shootout at Wadala is unique and I hope it makes it to the 200 crore club. Is there any such club, or should we start one?” she asked reports here in Noida.
The filmmaker was in the city to launch the trailer of her upcoming crime thriller Shootout At Wadala, which is based on the real-life incident involving the Mumbai mafia. It’s also Mumbai police’s first registered shootout in which gangster Manya Surve was gunned down in 1982 at Wadala.
“I have made a film and the film is based on a book (Hussain Zaidi’s Dongre to Dubai), so if the book is doing great, then why should I be scared? I think one should remain true to their heart, rest will fall into place” Ekta said.
Shootout At Wadala, directed by Sanjay Gupta, is the prequel to 2007 hit ‘Shootout At Lokhandwala. The film which is set to hit theatres on May 1st, features John Abraham, Kangna Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor and Sonu Sood.
