If you think Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra are moping over the fate of Baar Baar Dekho(BBD), think again. Both have quickly moved on . Katrina to Tiger Zinda Hai with [tooltip id=”88b6af99531f838ed90aed058b7d870a”][tooltip id=”c1b465420d07c688942ed18eadfd9f92″ keyword_color=”#000000″ background_color=”#ffffff”][tooltip id=”4db8f5608d45f5de7881d9bce162f4bf”]Salman Khan[/tooltip][/tooltip][/tooltip],and Sidharth to his untitled action film with Jacqueline Fernandez.
Sidharth is not the least remorseful about doing BBD. “Not at all! Maybe we failed. But at least we tried something new. When I heard the script for Baar Baar Dekho it was one of the most exciting ideas I had come across. What a lovely thought! The heart was in the right place.”
He says he never question his choices . “I only question certain methods and processes in the movie making business. I think after failure I’ve come out more experienced and slightly wiser.”
What makes Sidharth sad is that an honourable failure like BBD deters other filmmakers and actors from tying out-of-the-box projects. “Now I know if I meet a director
with a new idea
I’ll be wary. Or say, if I write a script I’ll be thinking anxiously about whether it works for me as a member of the audience. The experience has made me more conscious of my future. Had Baar Baar Dekho worked better maybe I wouldn’t be so careful with the modalities of making a film.”
Katrina and Sidharth promoted Baar Baar Dekho with a vengeance. They even made a fool of themselves on that utterly crass show Comedy Nights Bachao where Katrina sold chappals and Sidharth danced to Chikni Chameli.
Sidharth laughs in embarrassment. “Yes we did go out of our comfort zones to promote the film.
You definitely question yourself when so much hard work is not rewarded. I heard a very interesting quote on marketing. ‘Marketing is like God. If you believe in it it works for you. Even if you don’t believe in it you still hope it works for me’. Nobody knows why so much marketing is done for our movies.”
But why embarrass yourself selling a product when he fact is, audiences decide the fate of a film on the basis of the first trailer?
Sighs Sid, “I am not in a position as yet where I can decide what works and what doesn’t work. I just have to by the wisdom of those who know better. We are all learning as we go along. It’s an ongoing process.”
However Sidharth stands by his choices in life, no matter what. “I think after failure I’ve come out more experienced and slightly wiser. I am still going to choose only those scripts that I believe in. I stand by my choices. If I like a script and a role it doesn’t matter how many other actors are there or how many scenes I have.All the films that I’ve done so far tell stories that I want to tell.”
So if , like his character in Baar Baar Dekho Sidharth had the chance to go into the future and not do the film, what would you do? “Oh,I’d still do the film. But maybe differently. I still think it has great potential. Now it’s already done.So no point in thinking of what can’t be fixed.”[tooltip type=”box” html=”Input Your Content Here” box_background_color=”#eeeeee” box_opacity=”0.95″ box_padding=”10″ box_border_color=”#3F3F3F” box_border_width=”1″ box_border_radius=”0″ id=”88b6af99531f838ed90aed058b7d870a” /][tooltip type=”box” html=”Salman Khan Bollywood Actor” box_background_color=”#eeeeee” box_opacity=”0.95″ box_padding=”10″ box_border_color=”#3F3F3F” box_border_width=”1″ box_border_radius=”0″ id=”c1b465420d07c688942ed18eadfd9f92″ /]
