Varun Grover 2

Writer and Lyricist, Varun Grover, is all set to make his directorial debut with the film All India Rank. The trailer of the film has been released, and it has received a good response. After watching the trailer, some scenes might remind you of Vikrant Massey starrer 12Th Fail. Filmibeat recently interacted with Varun and spoke to him about the comparison with the Vidhu Vinod Chopra directorial.

When asked if he is ready for the comparsion between All India Rank and 12Th Fail, the filmmaker said, "Yes, I am ready for it and it is something I can't control. Even if I see as an audience, so even I would compare; as a film buff who would observe cinema, they will compare and that's fine. There's nothing wrong in comparison. If people will think that 12Th Fail had come and now, a similar film is coming, so that comparison is good because that was a very beautiful film. Maybe because of that reason some people will come and watch my film, thinking this will be like 12Th Fail."

"If we take education system as a genre then in that there's 3 Idiots, 12Th Fail, and now, All India Rank as well. So, I feel this is a good genre. It's a story of youth and how they handle the problems. People can come and compare the films; in fact, I am saying watch and make a list of comparison like match the following. So, if the comparison happens then its good, and if it doesn't happen then also its good. But, one think I know for sure is that this story has not been told before, maybe the genre would be same, but not the story," he added.

All India Rank is all set to release on 23rd February 2024.
