Jaya Bachchan is a person, who has never shied away from speaking her mind. And now she has spoken about how the Indian filmmakers have just confined movies till numbers and business.
The veteran actress, at the Jio MIAMI 18th Mumbai Film Festival with Star, compared the content of the Indian films made in 1950s and 60s to the ones that are being created now.
She said, ‘Filmmakers at that time, created art. Today, it’s a business and all about numbers. Everything is thrown at our face. People have forgotten subtlety.
Open display of affection is considered smart… sharam naam ki toh cheese hee nahi hai (people are no longer ashamed). Now, it’s about big collections at the box office, Rs 100 crore films, first weekend collection.’
Well, if we think, Mrs Bachchan has been one of the favourites of Yash Chopra, and it is a possibility that she is disappointed with Aditya Chopra’s film, Befikre, which is all about new age romance.
We all know that the trailer of Befikre was released recently, and received a lot of flak for lal the kissing and aping the westernised culture.
The actress also emphasized on the fact that cinema is a visual medium and that one can say or express emotions in a subtle way.
She said, ‘I get stressed out when I see this kind of cinema. I need to run away to some quiet place.’
