In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Tigmanshu Dhulia opened up about Bullett Raja’s poor performance at the box office. 

Tigmanshu Dhulia's 2013 action-thriller Bullett Raja was one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. Starring Saif Ali Khan in the lead role, the film promised to be an adrenaline-pumping ride filled with action, drama, and suspense. However, despite the hype and the star power, the movie failed to live up to expectations at the box office. Speaking of the same, Tigmanshu Dhulia, in an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, opened up on the poor performance of the Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha starrer.

While candidly sharing his thoughts, Dhulia said in Hindi, “I really like Bullett Raja personally. The writing is really good, I don’t think I’ve ever written dialogues that good — very commercial, hard-hitting dialogues. Everyone did well; Jimmy, Saif. The songs were great. It’s not that the film bombed badly. It did well on satellite, and ‘Tamanche Pe Disco’ was a superhit song. We didn’t fall on our faces. But I was expecting it to do well… But people were like, ‘What in the world has Tigmanshu Dhulia done?'”

As the conversation progressed further, the filmmaker also talked about his 2018 film Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3, the least successful entry in the crime drama trilogy. He stated that he knew before the film was released that he’d made mistakes on it. Elaborating on the same, the renowned director said, “I wouldn’t say that I don’t get upset when a film doesn’t work. I feel terrible, I don’t leave my house for three or four days. It’s like when you fail the 10th board. It’s still the same feeling to this day. I can’t take it when my film doesn’t do well, it upsets me greatly.” 

He concluded by saying that he believes the “audiences prefer directors to stay in their lane and not experiment too much.”
