I’m sad if a good film flops: Tusshar KapoorJuly 21st, 2012 - 9:22 am ICT by IANS
Mumbai, July 21 (IANS) When a bad film doesn’t work, it doesn’t upset Tusshar Kapoor. But when a genuinely good film fails to get the right response at the box office the actor feels bad.
“If the film is genuinely bad, then I don’t feel so bad. But if the film is good and a lot of issues were involved while making it or it is not been released well, then I feel bad. That leaves me depressed,” Tusshar told IANS.
One such project is his last film “Chaar Din Ki Chandni”, directed by Samir Karnik. It didn’t get the expected response from the audiences, leaving Tusshar disappointed.
“I felt it was a good film, but didn’t get its due share. Something happened between Samir and me because of the finances. I feel that also came in the way of success. However, everything is sorted out now,” he added.
In a decade-old career, Tusshar, son of veteran actor Jeetendra, has seen many highs and lows, but he has no one to blame. He takes the onus himself.
“Sometimes we need to look into ourselves. That is very important. We always like to blame others, but we don’t realise when we choose something wrong. Sometimes we end up signing the wrong films,” he said.
Tusshar started his Bollywood career with 2001 film “Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai” and went on to do films like “Kyaa Dil Ne Kaha”,”Jeena Sirf Mere Liye”, the “Golmaal” series and “Shor In The City”.
Critics have also not been in favour of the 35-year-old actor on most occasions, but Tusshar is unfazed.
“Word of mouth is more important. If the film gets respect and if the critics give it good ratings, then it’s even better. Sometimes they (critics) are also wrong.
“Out and out commercial films get good ratings and some interesting films don’t get good ratings. At the end of the day, it’s all just a view point,” he said.
Tusshar is now gearing up for the release of “Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum”, which hits the theatres July 27. It is the sequel to 2005 film “Kyaa Kool Hain Hum”.
The actor, younger brother of film producer Ekta Kapoor, calls the new film an “alternate comedy”. It is replete with double innuendos which could catch the fancy of audiences that appreciate adult humour.
“You can call it an alternate film. It is a comedy but with a different kind of humour. So this shock value is probably working to the advantage of the film. Some people tried to copy this formula, but they flopped,” he said.
Directed by Sachin Yardi, “Kyaa Super…” also features Riteish Deshmukh, Neha Sharma and Sara Jane-Dias. Tusshar admits working on the film was a challenge.
“In “Kyaa Super…”, I am playing a character which I have played before, but Sachin made it so hard for me. He made me do 8 to 10 takes to get one shot right. He made me struggle, which is also good,” he said.
