Anupam Kher is delighted that after his Uunchai, another film Drishyam 2 has opened to encouraging boxoffice collections.
“It’s not about original or remakes. It’s about what touches the heart.Beimaani nahin chalegi(fake films won’t work). If you make a genuine film then it doesn’t matter who is in it. The honesty of your intention should shine through, as it did in Uunchai,” says Anupam.
He is delighted by the audiences’ response to Uunchai. “We expected our genuine intentions to be appreciated. The public has been through a lot during the past two years. They have begun to appreciate and value the things that are worth appreciating and valuing. Aap unhe jhoothi kahaniya nahin suna sakte woh nahin sunenge(they won’t listen to your fake stories). The only way to bring the audience back is to give them stories that come from the heart. You can’t pull them back into theatres by tempting them with stars.”
