Rakul Preet Singh opens up on Bollywood's rough phase, says people shouldn’t play ‘blame game'

'Everywhere it is the same story, and we need to ask a bigger question: why,' Rakul Preet Singh talks about Hindi movies not doing well.

Actor Rakul Preet Singh, who is gearing up for the release of her forthcoming movie 'Chhatriwali', has talked about the rough phase of the Hindi film industry and said that, 'every industry is going through a phase.'

In an exclusive conversation with Indian Express, she said, 'If we say South films, they are four different industries. That way, the North film industry would include Marathi films, Punjabi, Hindi films. It is a great time then, because Ved has worked, some Punjabi films have worked, Hindi films have worked. We create the narrative. Every industry has at least two films releasing every week.'

'There’s an RRR that worked in Telugu, there’s Kantara and KGF 2 in Kannada, Vikram and PS 1 worked in Tamil. Many wouldn’t know the Malayalam films that have worked because they have not been released in Hindi. Everywhere it is the same story, and we need to ask a bigger question: why.' she added.

The 'De De Pyaar De' actor asked people to stop the blame game and try to resolve the issues.

'Not everyone can afford to spend money every week in theatres, when they know it’s going to be available online in sometime, so they choose one film a month, which will be like an outing for the family. May be that’s what it is, may be affordability is the problem, may be pricing is the problem. There are too many questions which we should ask than play a blame game. Because even in Hindi four-five films have worked, ' she said.

Taking about her upcoming film's concept, she mentioned, 'When you are hoping to change the mindset of the audience through your film, you have to first get them to watch it. In theatres, initially they may not be comfortable to go with their families because of a preconceived notion, but on OTT they can watch it alone, change that notion, and think this is something we can watch with our families.'

Directed by Tejas Prabha Vijay Deoskar, the film will release on ZEE5 on January 20.

On the work front, besides 'Chhatriwali', she also has 'Indian 2', co-starring Kamal Haasan, and a Telugu film titled 'Ayalaan'.
