Demonetisation may have affected the box office collection of the recent releases but director Sujoy Ghosh says he doesn’t think it will harm his upcoming directorial Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh as the film has an engaging story. The filmmaker believes if people would want watch the movie they will definitely go to the theatres despite currency crisis. “I don’t think demonetisation will affect my film. It’s all about priority so if people would really want to watch it they will definitely go to theatres. It doesn’t matter if there is a currency problem in the country,” Ghosh told reporters here.

“There are difficult times and something is always going on in the country so I think we shouldn’t give it a much thought. Many people have appreciated the trailer so I hope they will go to the theatres.”

“I don’t think one can question her talent. Even her performance in the so-called bad films was better than of lot of people I know. Sometimes we all go wrong in choosing scripts. Even I went wrong with Home Delivery, Aladdin. I think she chose to do ‘Kahaani’ with the same instinct as other films. Nobody knows whether a film will work or not,” Sujoy told PTI.

Sujoy and Vidya surprised the audience with their 2012 sleeper superhit of the year Kahaani. Now the duo is back with Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh that hits cinema houses on December 2.

The movie is the second in the Kahaani franchise. Starring Vidya Balan in the lead role of Durga Rani Singh, and Arjun Rampal as a cop, the suspense thriller will hit the theaters on December 2.
