Ahead of the release of Rohit Shetty’s upcoming comedy, he recently went to a panel discussion where he listed all the biggest hits that Bollywood had offered the country over the years. He passionately defended the Bollywood by reminding the audience about the films like Sholay, Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Maine Pyaar Kiya, Munnabhai MBBS, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Hera Pheri to his own Singhan, Golmaal and Sooryavanshi.
The audience got excited and started chanting his name as he said that it was Bollywood that made all these movies too. Even Ranveer Singh, who was also sitting there, got excited at how well Rohit defended the Hindi film industry. Other crew members also joined him for the promotions including Pooja Hegde, and Varun Sharma.
Talking about the box office collection of his recent films, he said that Sooryavanshi collected ₹196 crore even releasing with an occupancy of 50% in theaters due to COVID-19. “Sooryavanshi was released, and at the beginning of this year, films like The Kashmir Files and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 worked well. Drishyam 2 has done well recently. It’s not like our films aren’t working. Gangubai Kathiawadi did really well,” he said. Rohit added, “Ek saal kharab gaya aur aap palti maar rahe ho (We had one bad year and you are turning your backs on us)?”

He also addressed the fact that new actors don’t want to do multi hero films anymore as they are extremely insecure. By questioning unity in Bollywood, he said, “We are a strong clan, but we don’t understand our power. We can do a lot, but we never unite. People love us and we can bring change in so many things. If we worked like a syndicate, we could do a lot. We aren’t thinking of how to expand the theater business and work with the government, and where to go— we’re not able to reach 10 crore people in 1500 crore people?”
Meanwhile, Cirkus which features Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ajay Devgan in lead roles will hit the theaters on December 23.
