New Delhi- Prateik Babbar is counted among the best actors of Bollywood. Now this actor is going to make a bang in Bollywood with an unseen avatar. Prateik Babbar is going to be seen in filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘India Lockdown’. His character in this film is going to be completely different from all the characters of this actor seen till now. In an interview given about his upcoming film, Prateek talked about the plight of films after the lockdown. He told during the interview that after the lockdown even nonsense films seem to be successful in theatres. Although the condition of the OTT platform is quite good in this matter.
Prateik is playing the role of a migrant laborer in the film ‘India Lockdown’. Who faces the outbreak of increasing cases of Kovid-19 in India during 2020 and is forced to return home on foot. Shweta Basu Prasad and Aahana Kumra will be seen in this film along with Prateik Babbar. Madhur Bhandarkar was also present during the interview along with the star cast of the film. During the conversation, Shweta told how the audience sees things differently in the post Kovid era.
Shweta Basu Prasad says that there has been a change in the selection of films by the audience. Earlier the films which used to do well at the box-office, now those films are not able to show any wonder at the box-office. She further says that now these films may go on OTT. According to Shweta, despite earning money from films that hit the box office, they do not have a recall value. She says, “Of course, films should make money and bring money into the industry. I am happy with it. But, I don’t think those films have a shelf life and that’s okay too.”
taking the discussion forward Sign It is said that the choice of the audience has definitely changed regarding films. It is a matter of 50-50. I do not want to name any film or actor, but these days nonsense films are also running at the box-office.
South films are winning the hearts of the audience
Expressing his opinion on this subject, Madhur Bhandarkar says that after the lockdown, the audience has got to see all kinds of shows on OTT. He says that many films from the South like ‘Kantara’, ‘RRR’, ‘Kartikeya’ and ‘Pushpa’ have managed to pull audiences to the theatres, while only two Bollywood films, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ and ‘The Kashmir’ Only ‘files’ have been able to do this.
