2022 has been a tough year for Bollywood, its actors and filmmakers. While we have seen many films like RRR, Brahmastra, Drishyam 2, Gangubai Kathiawadi, The Kashmir Files, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and others making a mark at the box office with their theatrical releases, others, which were expected to do well at the box office like Laal Singh Chaddha, Bhediya, Raksha Bandhan, Samrat Prithviraj, Bachchhan Paandey, Shamshera and others failed miserably and doomed at the box office. Now directors Anurag Kashyap and Karan Johar who spoke about films not working at the box office are weighing the same.

Kashyap was recently in the news for his observation in The Kashmir Files when he compared it to RRR. In one of his interviews he had stated that TKF does not deserve to go to the Oscars.

Now in a latest interview, Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap have spoken about the ‘Anti-Bollywood’ claim and stated that there is no such thing. KJo went on to add that if that was the case, then why would a film open at 35 crores while referring to Brahmastra.

When Anurag Kashyap was asked about the opposite view from Bollywood being considered the reason for the decline in ticket sales, he told Galatta Plus Roundtable, “This is not true at all, Bollywood is the most capitalist. There is no left or right there.” Adding “The problem is most of these opportunists, the way they use, then it becomes propaganda. And the opposite view is also counter-propaganda.” When Rangan pointed out that the opposing view from Bollywood is being blamed for the decline in ticket sales, Anurag said, “That’s not true at all. Bollywood it is the most capitalistic. There is no left or right there.”

Supporting Anurag Kashyap, Karan Johar added, “A lot of it is just ridiculous and it’s just theories and conspiracy theories that can go on and on. People want to see your movie, they will watch it. No one is aiming Bollywood because if that was the case, why would a film open to 35 crore at all? No one is like ‘anti-Bollywood, but not for this person’.

“We make great movies, they’re going to do amazing, you don’t make a good movie, it’s not going to (work). We no longer have a forgiving audience. We once had. There was a time when riding a superstar, we watched a substandard film. Now, even a superstar has to deliver a super product,” added the Brahmastra producer.
