Actor Ranbir Kapoor starrer Shamshera, unfortunately, didn’t create the buzz as one would expect at the box office. As the period drama tanked at the box office, actor Alia Bhatt, also the wife of Ranbir, reacted to the Shamshera failure in a recent interview while she was promoting her upcoming movie, Darlings. During the candid chat, Alia mentioned that one should be a little compassionate towards Hindi cinema.

It’s a tough year for Indian cinema. We should be a little kind to Hindi films. Today, we are sitting here and saying, ‘Oh Bollywood, oh Hindi cinema’. But are we counting the films that have done well this year? Even in the South industry, all their films have not worked. A good film will always do well,” Alia said to Indian express.

The Gangubai Kathiawadi actor further added that everyone has been working hard. She said, “Nobody is just sitting, eating popcorn and saying, ‘Jo hona hai hone do’. Everybody cares. If you ask anyone, who is into the movie business, we are literally just talking movies, that’s all we talk about.”

After Shamshera failure, director Karan Malhotra took to his Instagram and penned a heartfelt note, saying that he ‘could not handle the hate and rage’ that his film had to face. Karan captioned his post, “Shamshera is mine” and wrote, “My Dearest Shamshera, you are majestic the way you are. It is important for me to express myself on this platform because here is where is all the love, the hate, the celebration and the humiliation exists for you. I want to unimaginably apologise to you for abandoning you for these past few days as I could not handle the hate and rage. My withdrawal was my weakness and there are no excuses for it.
