We all know this fact that Shah Rukh Khan’s movie will definitely be a blockbuster without any doubts but less we know now, after the release of his latest Bollywood movie it was a complete disaster on the box office.
People were bashing Shah Rukh Khan and team for coming up with such pathetic storyline this time. This was not expected from you Shah Rukh Khan. Now what we see is that Kannada a Hindi dubbed movie is doing better than Zero and well that’s a shame.
This should be cause for concern not just for SRK, but other Bollywood superstars who have dominated the pan-India box office. According to trade sources, Prashanth Neel’s KGF is not only a blockbuster in its home state Karnataka, but it has also scored a victory in the Hindi belt as well.
The leading character of Kannada was gratified with the response and he mentioned: “I won’t say that doing better than a Shah Rukh Khan film in Hindi-speaking belts is something I aspire to do.”
He further elaborated: “Ideally, I would want both films to do well. But yes, the way North Indian audiences have responded has surprised all of us in the KGF team. In North India, they don’t know who I am. Yet, they are clapping and cheering at my entry.”
Obviously, no one was thinking about this devastating situation with the movie of King Khan of Bollywood. Yash was shocked with the success and he also mentioned: “We knew we had made a film that would do us proud,” he replies. “We wanted to take Kannada cinema to another level. So far, we were seen as underdogs. We wanted that to end and we have succeeded.”
Yash feels the Hindi, Tamil and Telugu dubbed versions of KGF were not treated as typical dubbed products.
“We worked really hard on the dubbing to ensure that there were no overlaps in the lip-sync. Also, the cultural references in the dialogues had to be changed. Certain words and phrases in Kannada have entirely different connotations in Tamil or Hindi.”
Well, Bollywood has lost scriptwriters I guess and they need to work really hard to get back to it.
