Ahead of Faraaz release, Hansal Mehta opens up about box office figures determining success; says, “Every film cannot be a blockbuster”

en Bollywood News Ahead of Faraaz release, Hansal Mehta opens up about box office figures determining success; says, “Every film cannot be a blockbuster”

Directed by Hansal Mehta, Faraaz is scheduled to release on February 3.

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta ruled the year 2021 with his critically acclaimed web show, Scam 1992. Now once again, he is back with a film, Faraaz, which has been in the headlines for the past few days. As the release is around the corner, Hansal opened up about the box office figures determining the success of a film. During a press conference, Hansal stated that he feels baffled by the “obsession” with the commercial performance as he believes not every movie can turn out to be a blockbuster on the day of its release.

The director asserted, “The box office has become the yardstick for a film’s success or quality, something that has upset filmmakers like me… There has to be organic growth of a film. Every film has an audience and you have to allow it to breathe. Every film cannot be a blockbuster on Friday and Saturday.”

Speaking of Faraaz, Mehta said, “We want the audience to slowly discover the film, like go to the theatres and have conversations. Faraaz could have been a film that would have directly gone to OTT but I believe that like there is a spectacle film RRR, Pathaan, there is also Faraaz that should be enjoyed on the big screen.”

He further elaborated, “The potential, the immersive nature of the film, the sound, it is a different spectacle. It is meant for the big screen. I want the audience to not only enjoy but also get immersed.”

Talking about the film, the upcoming action-thriller is based on the 2016 attack on Dhaka’s Holey Artisan Bakery, which shook Bangladesh. The ensemble star cast of the film will feature Juhi Babbar, Aamir Ali, Pallak Lalwani, Aditya Rawal and Zahan Kapoor. The film is slated to release on February 3.
