2018 has left each and everyone surprised as all the three Khans of Bollywood failed horribly as they garnered criticism from not only critics but also audiences. Zoya Akhtar, who's known for making 'hatke' films, is all set for her next outing i.e., Gully and while promoting the film, the lady talks about Khans' failure in 2018.
She told The Asian Age, "Star system is not going anywhere. Just because 2018 didn't belong to the stars, it doesn't mean that the star system will vanish. The Khans can't be touched and I respect them for their body of work. As far as the theatrical experience is concerned, I will highly be disappointed if that goes away. I have grown up watching films in theatres so that community experience should never go."
Interestingly, Zoya also completed her ten years in Industry. Looking back at her journey, she says, "The lesson that I have learnt in these 10 years is that do not ignore your instincts. While making a film, when your gut feels that you are going wrong, please take that seriously. You also have to have a strong crew, so I handpick my crew and I respect them. And even if it's a two-liner, please pick your actor, don't get anyone randomly."
Rumours have been also rife that Zoya is planning the sequel to her film, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Reacting to the same, she said, "I don't know. I get this asked a lot and I am dying to work with Hrithik again. The entire team is special, I can't wait to work with them again but I can't make a sequel just to capitalize on something. It has to make sense. It has to stand on its own. I want to make a film that is as fulfilling as the first one."
Coming back to Gully Boy, the film is all set to hit the theatres tomorrow (Februray 14, 2019).
