Besharam, starring Ranbir Kapoor, received disappointment from the critics and in terms of audiences too, the movie had a mixed response. However, director Abhinav Kashyap is determined to keep ait daunting and bring to forefront where it all went wrong for them.
In a conversation with Mumbai Mirror, Abhinav asserts that how everyone is criticizing the film, but he remains unaffected as the numbers are going good. He also drops hint of foul play by ‘people with vested interests’. “I have the first day numbers of the film which is the highest for both me and Ranbir. I really don’t understand why the English media and certain people with vested interest are panning the film. I think they are not able to accept Ranbir in the character he is playing,” he said.
Talking about the showbiz business he says, ” The collection might drop in the normal course of events as Thursday is a working day. But, then there are people who actually read reviews and tweets before deciding to go for a movie. And I am worried that these negative comments might actually have an impact on the film’s fate at the box-office.”
As Pinkvilla points, he strongly feels that the huge Khan fanbase may have something to do with it. “It all started when the promos of the film were released. Fans of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan fans took offence to certain scenes, although we had no intention to hurt anyone.”
“With whatever is happening around Besharam, I smell some kind of a sinister plan. Certain forces don’t want the film to succeed,” he added further.
