In a recent interview with the Calcutta Times, actor Parambrata Chattopadhyay expressed his belief that Bengali audiences have "tremendous double standards" when it comes to films. He specifically mentioned Shah Rukh Khan's recent action blockbusters, Pathaan and Jawan, stating that if they were made in Bengali, they would not be successful.Parambrata Chattopadhyay argues Bengali audiences won’t watch Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan and Jawan; says, “This spectacle is connected to machismo”
"SRK's films do very well here, but if you make a Jawan or Pathaan in Bengali, nobody is going to watch it," Chattopadhyay remarked. "This is the era of homegrown family dramas, fantasy adventures, sleuths. That's the maximum we can think of."
The Pari actor further elaborated on his observation, suggesting that the national audience is drawn to larger-than-life spectacles on the big screen, often associated with machismo. He noted that this trend is not as prevalent in certain states, including Kerala, Bengal, and Maharashtra.
"This spectacle is connected to machismo, and the machismo as defined by RRR or Jawan in our country unfortunately is all about men," Chattopadhyay explained. "There are a handful of states where this spectacle does not always work – Kerala, Bengal, and Maharashtra. Will you say it speaks of progressivism? Not really."
For the unversed, the above-mentioned film of SRK, released this year, made several records at the box office. Now, Shah Rukh is gearing up for his third release of the year, Dunki. The Rajkumar Hirani directorial is slated to release on December 21.
