“Theatres to be empty again after Jawan, Gadar 2,” says Sanjay Gupta; speaks about medium, low-budget films 

en Bollywood News “Theatres to be empty again after Jawan, Gadar 2,” says Sanjay Gupta; speaks about medium, low-budget films 

Gadar 2 was released in August while Jawan hit the theatres on September 7. Both achieved massive BO success. 

The recent success of big-budget films like Jawan and Gadar 2 has led to some speculation that the audience is returning to theatres. However, director Sanjay Gupta believes that this is only a temporary trend.

In an interview with ETimes, Gupta said that until medium or low-budget films start doing well, one cannot say that the audience is back. He pointed out that Jawan and Gadar 2 are both big-budget films that took several years to make. He believes that theatres will be empty again after a few weeks, as people wait for the next big film to arrive.

He asserted, “Gadar 2 and Jawan are big-budget films and they have taken 2-3 years to be made. Theatres will be empty again after a couple of weeks, waiting for the next big film to arrive." He explained that all the big stars do only one film a year. "It can’t be the case that only these top 5-6 stars’ films work. When people go to the theatres to watch a combination of films then I'd say that the audiences are back.” 

Gupta's comments echo the sentiments of many in the film industry. There is a growing belief that the audience is not returning to theatres in large numbers. This is due to a number of factors, including the rise of OTT platforms, the high cost of tickets, and the convenience of watching movies at home.
