Deepika says that even though last year’s fashion suggests that female-centric films had been extra successful, she believes that a movie’s fulfillment depends at the script now not the big name.
On the ebook release of The Dot That Went For A stroll in Mumbai, Deepika Padukone said, “it is pleasant for us to say ‘ladies centric’ or ‘girl centric’ while we are at a podium like this. But with regards to creativity, we ought to look past male and woman if the film didn’t paintings.”
Speaking of the Khans and their films this year which obtained bad evaluations; Shah Rukh’s zero, Aamir’s Thugs of Hindostan, Salman’s Race 3, Deepika replied, “It’s miles extraordinary when you say that the Khans’ films didn’t paintings, however say a movie like Andhadhun, that become led through Ayushmann Khurrana, labored. So, it really boils right down to the script itself.”
“However yes, I see a trend that movies led by women are doing plenty higher. Also, we’re in an area these days wherein administrators are converting roles, and that become remarkable. You’ve got a script which has a male protagonist, then all at once administrators are like ‘wait, let me simply flip that, permit me make that a girl protagonist and then go to so and so with the film’. So, you hear of a film that became supplied to a male actors 3 years in the past, and it’s far coming again to you now with a woman protagonist. It’s miles a big fulfillment.”
The big name introduced that audiences now best have a “pulse” for content material-pushed work, it’s not approximately a large famous person on the poster.
“But as a creative person, I would not like to make distinction like male led, female led and all of that. I would just say that great content is what is really working right now, and the audience are ready for that (type of content). It doesn’t matter today who is in the movie. It really depends on the kind of story that is being told and how well the director is telling that story. All these factors, I think, are playing a very important role in the success of these films.”
The 33-year-old continued, “No one can blindly say that just because so and so is in the film, let’s go and watch it. I think 2018 has made that clear. Audience has that pulse right from the poster to the promo. They know instantly from the first trailer that goes out, whether they want to go and watch that film or not. Of course, then there are films that may not be sort of trending right from the start, but once they release and over the weekend, the word of mouth helps elevate the film. But yes, gone are the days when you have a big star on a film poster and that film worked.”
