Arjun Rampal reacts to Dhakad failure for the first time: It didn’t deserve the kind of numbers it did

Must read

Filmmaking is an art, for sure, but it is also a business at the end of the day, and Arjun Rampal remembers that. And the general trend is that even if an actor delivers a stellar performance, most of the times the box office number chatter overpowers it. Naturally, if a movie doesn’t play, dialogue is added to it.

Dhakad, co-starring Kangana Ranaut, was a big-budget film, and was Rampal’s last theatrical release. And it didn’t live up to the expectations. When asked about it, he says, “It was an expensive film, so yes, when it doesn’t do well, it hurts. I don’t think it deserves to do the kind of numbers it did. At that time people got suspicious. Dhaakad was one of the first few films to come out after the pandemic. People were probably scared to go to the theatre.”

However, he mentioned in the same breath a film it clashed with. “We can’t even say that, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 did really well. May be we released with wrong film. Every film has its own destiny, and you just have to accept it and move on. Reality is reality. But it’s a film, I’m proud of it, it’s not a film I’m not proud of. As long as you take that much away from a film, you are in a good place,” says the 50-year-old, who will be next seen in the film Krack.

He says that high-budget films definitely have the pressure of performing at the box office, and he definitely thinks about the numbers game as well. “If someone has a film with a budget of 250 crores, then obviously there is so much pressure to perform in that film. But I watch films with content. I’m into the whole spectacle cinema thing. He is my favourite. I am very happy that Pathan has done so well, we all needed it, the industry needed those numbers. You cannot say that box office numbers are not important.
