Rakesh Roshan is all set for his home production, Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam. The film is releasing on January 25 and Rakesh Roshan is confident that it will do well owing to the wonderfully woven script that has a strong emotional string.
“I try to keep learning. The day we stop learning is the last day for us. I also like to watch newer talent and films. However, I may have not met them all. In today’s times, films with an emotional click works at the box office Undeniably, superficial tales fail to allure the audiences. Sultan, Neerja, Pink and Dangal, are some recent examples, which did well at the BO, simply owing to the emotional connect. Basically, nothing has changed. Unless the film has the emotional connect, it does not appeal to the audiences. I watch every new film on Fridays.”
Rakesh Roshan also talked about Hrithik, “We always like to conclude our discussions on a positive note. I do not have any ego hassles, in fact, I always like to hear from the new generation. Hrithik is very emotional, and thus, cares for an emotional tale. He has assisted me in almost four or five films. Whenever in discussion, he knows that for my films, scenic locales play an important part. For example, if I need a boat for a scene, he knows that I will go to any extent to get the best boat from anywhere in the world. Thus, we are mostly on the same page always. However, while discussing about songs, he always tells me, ‘Papa, just add some contemporary note to it’.”
I I do discuss things with my friends — I am social, especially with friends who understand and support me, and above all, are genuine. I don’t attend filmy parties, nor do I associate with people from the same profession. Mostly, I notice there are many people who backstab you! I notice that there are many people who back-stab you. They pretend to be friends but mouka aane par, kuch bhi kar sakte hai. Twitter par bhi kuch bhi likh dete hai.”
He explains it further, “This is an inherent quality that exists in every human being. They are basically insecure people. And such commoners do exist in every profession.”
