With A-listers turning into ail-listers, failing to bring in the audience , it is time for the rigid trend of solo-hero films to end.
Multiple filmmakers have told this writer that the era of solo hero starrers is over.
Every A-lister, from the Khan superstars to Akshay Kumar to Ajay Devgn insists on going solo. But the single-hero concept is not obsolete. One of the first filmmakers to realize this is Karan Johar. In Karan Johar’s Selfiee and Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, there are more than one leading man.
Selfiee is the first Akshay Kumar starrer in years to feature another hero Emraan Hashmi.
Hashmi also joins Salman Khan in Tiger 3.
The trickle of multiple stars in 2023 is likely to turn into a torment in 2024.
