What does DP has to say about the current figures? Read on to find out...
December 18 was one crucial day for Bollywood as two of the most awaited films- Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani hit the screens on the same day! Although critics have favored Bajirao over Dilwale by giving it rave reviews but if trade figures are anything to go by then Dilwale has clearly won the battle at the box office by already minting Rs 100 crore business worldwide! Usually in such situations, the actors prefer keeping a close watch on the box office figures wanting to know if the film has managed to impress the masses or no! But Deepika, who plays the pivotal role of Mastani in the Bhansali film is barely interested in knowing how Bajirao Mastani is faring at the box office in comparison to Shah Rukh Khan's Dilwale! Yes!
In a recent interview, when DP was asked if she is aware of Bajirao Mastani's box office position, she retorted, ""Not at all and I don’t want to know. I don’t understand why we equate creativity and success to numbers. I think films now need to go beyond that. The sign of a successful film is the repeat value and the films you want to watch years later. Whether it’s Piku, whether it’s Tamasha or whether it’s Bajirao Mastani I have never kept a track on Box Office figures and I don’t intend do. I am not aware of the collections at all."
For all that we know, while Dilwale marked a whopping sum of Rs 65.09 crore in the opening weekend. Bajirao Mastani comparatively lags behind with a total collection of Rs 46.77 crore in its first weekend! Do you think box office queen Deepika is doing right by not following the box office trends?
