Vivek Agnihotri, the director of The Kashmir Files, spoke candidly about Jayeshbhai Jordaar’s failure and even made fun of Ranveer Singh for deceiving the public. According to a report in Hindustan Times, Vivek had an interview with Kushal Mehra and said that while the Yash Raj Films production’s main concept was good, the lead actor and the advertising activities with him were not in line with the core themes of the movie.
Vivek said, “Ranveer Singh, the so-called number 1 star. People don’t get tired of praising him. His film Jayeshbhai Jordaar…was on female foeticide… about how people should not kill girls. What a wonderful subject! But then how were they promoting the film?” Agnihotri further explained, “Ranveer went shirtless and was dancing with 25 girls during the promotions. He was like just dancing with 25 sexy and glamorous girls. Nobody knew that the film was about female foeticide. It’s not a fashion show or some comedy film. Why would people go and see that?”
Vivek even mocked team Brahmastra, and said, “Brahmastra, do they even know the meaning of that? And then they are talking about Astra Verse, what is even that? Then you put your director, who can’t even pronounce Brahmastra. He is a wonderful director. I loved his Wake Up Sid and the second film and I wish he made a wonderful film. I am concerned about him like a mother is concerned about their children. I am very disappointed. So these are the problems.”
‘Brahmastra’ is a three-part fantasy epic which also features actors like Nagarjuna Akkineni, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and others in key roles. The film even boasts of a cameo by none other than Shah Rukh Khan. It is slated to hit the theatres on September 9, 2022.
Vivek, on the other hand, has announced his next titled, ‘Delhi Files’.
