Deepika Padukone told that, “everything boils down to the script itself for a film to work at the box office”.
Actress Deepika Padukone was last seen in “Padmaavat” movie.Deepika was launching the cover of the book which name is “The Dot That Went for a Walk”.She launced it on Wednesday.
She told that,”I think it’s amazing and nice for us to say that women centric or female centric films are working at a moment like this when we are talking about female role models. Having said that, when it comes to creativity, we need to look beyond female or male”
The female driven movies like “Hichki”, “Tumhari Sulu”, “Raazi”, “Piku” and many others movie did good business at the box office in films of large stars with big budgets at the box office.
Deepika added that, “everything boils down to a film script”.
She again added that,”it’s about the film. It’s a different thing that the films that the ‘Khans’ did, didn’t work but there was film like ‘AndhaDun’ which was led by Ayushmann Khurrana that did wonder at the box office so I think everything boils down to the script itself. But yes, I see a trend where films that are being led by women are doing much better.”
She feels that,now directors are prefer to making more female driven movies.She said that,”we are in place today where directors are changing roles and that’s unheard of. If you have script that has male protagonist and suddenly directors are like, ‘Let me just flip that. Let me just make that female protagonist and then go to so and so with the film’ so, you hear of a film that was offered to a male actor two-three years ago and its coming back to you now with a female protagonist which is a huge achievement.”
The Indian fans has evolved over the last years.
“As a creative person, I would not like to make this distinction of male driven or female driven film. I would just say that great content is what is really working right now. I think a lot of that has to do with the audience. They are ready for that. I don’t think it matters anymore who is in the movie,” said Deepika.
“Now you can’t blindly say that so and so is in the film, then let’s go and watch. I think year 2018 was clear indication of that. Right from the promo, poster all of that, I think that the audience has that pulse,” she added.
Deepika’s next film is “Chhapak”.The director of this movie is Meghna Gulzar.This movie’s story is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.Another star is Vikrant Massey and co-produced by the stunning Deepika herself.
