Actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who will be seen essaying the role of an advocate in director Sanjay Gupta’s upcoming movie “Jazbaa”, believes that no film can flop if planned properly.
“This is a very good time for film-making business. I think business has found its security. As industry exhibition has increased and continues to grow, it gives the opportunity to make more prints and certain returns are assured to the investors,” Aishwarya told IANS.
“So I think there shouldn’t be any loss-making business in the film industry, and if it is well planned no film can flop,” she added.
She also said that sometimes a film is perceived as a flop even though it did enough business.
“In the past we may think that a film is a hit, but later come to know from producer’s friends that it will take next two years to recover the money. So perception is an important aspect for the business,” she said.
“Having said that, this is a great time (for films). Different subjects can be made, producers can plan the finances accordingly and that makes a good time for us actors and filmmakers to do different stories,” she added.
“Jazbaa” sees the “Devdas” actress portraying the role of a lawyer.
“I am a working mother, so by vocation I am a lawyer (in the film). The director has done all the research that needs to be done before presenting to the actor and it is not that its taken from reality so that you really need to match the certain kind of fact,” Aishwarya said.
Irrfan, who has come to the country for two days from Lithuania just for dubbing for “Jazbaa”, also added that the only thing that was “tough” in the film was the “location”.
“The location was so tough, it was difficult to reach it. Reaching there was an achievement in itself,” the “Jurassic World” actor quipped.
The film, which also features Shabana Azmi, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Jackie Shroff is a Hindi remake of South Korean movie “Seven Days”.
“Jazbaa” is produced by Essel Vision, White Feather Films and Viking Entertainment and is slated to hit the theatres on Friday.
