Mumbai: Theatre personality Vikram Kapadia, who is currently working in filmmaker Vikram Bhatt's TV production Bisaat Rishton Ka (earlier titled Kurukshetra), thinks that Bollywood is "like a dead pitch - the ball doesn't come up to the bat".
During an interview with Bollywood Life, Kapadia said that Amitabh Bachchan was great in his heydays, but now, he is a victim of his own mannerisms. "He ends up imitating himself. He had some great moments in his youth. He could've changed the industry but he was not interested. He stuck to only mainstream. He needs to do a Hrishikesh Mukherjee kind of film to get back in the groove. Of course, he is an amazing talent and he is one of the best we have," Kapadia told the website.
That's not the end of it as Vikram took a dig at the Yash Raj Films as well. He said that YRF does not respect its actors. According to Kapadia, Yash Chopra and his company got Shahrukh Khan when he was cheap. "Yeah, but they got him when he was cheap," Vikram said.
