After a quite long time, South star Nagarjuna is making his comeback with Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra starring Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor.
In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, the actor was asked about his comeback in Bollywood. To which the actor said, “Comeback? I am on your TV screen all the time.” He plays an archaeologist in this film. “But more than the archaeology part, it’s the script and passion to mix mythology with Vedic and present times, that got me on board the film. I don’t want to reveal much about it, but it’s a film about a 5000 year old (weapon), Brahmastra.”
Talking about the script he said, “Raw stardom exists only till a certain limit. Even the biggest star can’t save a bad film. The film might collect a little more, but that’s about it. A star can only notch up the financials, but can’t carry the film. The biggest of stars have delivered the biggest of flops.”
“They change every year. I don’t think any film in India can match up to Sholay, if we literally convert the number to this year. The numbers just keep growing and you keep chasing them. I never did that in my entire career. Numbers are fictional, which can be added and made up. The older one disappears and a new number comes up,” he concludes.
