Celebrations are in order. But the Wanted party has been postponed by a week. “Our director Prabhu Deva got caught up in an assignment in Kerala. So we’ve postponed the party for next week. We can’t celebrate without Prabhu,” says Boney emotionally.
Boney has not been so excited in a long time. “The collections of Wanted speak for themselves. In the first week, it has done better business than Kambakkht Ishq did in its entire run. There was gun-firing between two sections of clashing Salman fans in a theatre named Rishi in Bulandshaher.”
Commenting on Dil Bole Haddipa(which released along with Wanted), Boney says, “Their intended USP was the Punjabi culture. Ironically, the film didn’t even open well in Punjab. How does one explain this? Their other USP was Rani Mukherjee dressed as a man. But old-time heroines like Asha Parekh and Saira Banu have done the man thing long ago. And they were buxom ladies therefore tantalizing in their cross-dressing. With due respects to her amazing talent, Rani looked like a school boy.”
Apart from the No Entry sequel, Boney will also finally start a film with his mesmeric wife Sridevi. “If I don’t, her fans will kill me. I’ve heard a script I’ve liked.”
