Amit Ravindernath Sharma: One needs positive approach while writing-directing a film

Filmmaker Amit Ravindernath Sharma, who is enjoying the success of his recently released film ‘Badhaai Ho’, has said that there has to be a positive demand or approach of the filmmaker while writing and directing a film.

Amit Ravindernath Sharma was interacting with media after the success of ‘Badhaai Ho’ on Tuesday in Mumbai.

Ayushmann Khurrana: Badhaai Ho will be a case study for future filmmakers

To say that Ayushmann Khurrana is on cloud nine these days would be a massive understatement. With two hit releases in a single month, the actor is basking in box office glory. If ‘Andhadhun’ was heralded as the sleeper hit of the year, then his latest, ‘Badhaai Ho’, has set the cash registers ringing even harder.

‘Badhaai Ho’ revolves around an old couple becoming parents again. The comedy-drama features Ayushmann Khurrana as the son of an elderly couple who finds out that they would be turning parents for the third time.

When asked Sharma whether he anticipated that his recently released film will get an overwhelming response from the audience, he said, “You can’t write or direct a film thinking that whether it will work. When you write a film, you hope that it will do well. There has to be a positive demand or approach that the film on which we are working on should do well.”

He said If someone has doubts about the success of his own film, then there is no use of writing and directing a film. “There was positive response all around when we narrated story of the film to the people who were supposed to associate with the film.”

Talking about his upcoming project, Sharma said, “I am working on a film which will be a footballer’s biopic and we will start shooting from next year. As of now, we don’t have dates of the actors who are working in it. We will make an official announcement soon.”

‘Badhaai Ho’ features Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra, Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao in lead roles.
