When Arshad Warsi The dialogue, hopefully, will be nothing short of candid. Recently Arshad was spotted launching a coffee shop in Bengaluru. There, in a media interaction, he was asked to comment about Bachchan Pandey, his last film starring Akshay Kumar. The film could not cross the Rs 50 crore mark in a week.
The reporter described the film’s performance as a “success” at the box office. Arshad quipped, “Don’t lie, it’s not success.” He then went on to say, “It was a good film, but unfortunately it happened, some things work, some things don’t. I think it just went through a bad patch, there were a lot of things that made it that much.” Didn’t make as much success as it should have. It’s a big film, it should have made a lot of money, but it’s still not a loss, it has covered its money.”
When he was further asked whether the film’s poor performance was due to the surge in OTT releases, Arshad said, “No, I don’t think it is an OTT effect. Well, I have an answer, but I can’t say that.” I’m leaving. Don’t fall into it, it’s a different place.”
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Akshay Kumar had admitted that the continued success of The Kashmir Files had affected Bachchan Pandey’s performance at the box office. He said, “First of all, let me tell you that I am very excited by the success The Kashmir Files has seen. It tells you the power of cinema and there is no formula to budget and start films that guarantee success. It proves that audiences are what we make our films for and when they take something in their arms it goes away. Yes, I want Bachchan Pandey better than what I am doing, but I don’t even once blame the files in Kashmir for this. That film is Toofan and we have come under his eyes.”
Arshad also shared an update on the next season of his streaming show Asur. He said, “Asur is now releasing in June or July. I find Asura 2 more exciting and thrilling than Asura 1. When people liked season 1, 2 they would love it, which means 3 could happen too. ,
