Kriti Sanon recalls when she & Sushant Singh Rajput discussed Raabta’s failure over wine: We were all sulky
Raabta starring Kriti Sanon and late Sushant Singh Rajput didn’t create a stir as one were expecting it to be. The songs and Sushant-Kriti’s chemistry were already hit among the movie buffs but the film failed to leave an impact on the audience. However, now, recalling the time when they all were in bad mood and sulking after learning about the bad reviews of Raabta, Kriti mentioned that everyone were depressed and discussed its failure over wine.
In an interview with Film Companion, Kriti said, “You have to accept what has happened. You’re making films for the audience, you can’t say unko samajh nahi aayi (they didn’t understand). Agar unko samajh nahi aayi tumhari galti hai (It’s your fault if they didn’t understand). You can’t say, ‘We were ahead of our time’. No, you’re making films for that time, you have to connect to the audience. Where did you fail? You have to figure that out.”

She continued, “It was a funny night. We were all really sulky, we were depressed, we’d gone through really bad reviews and we didn’t know what to say. Dino was just like, ‘Aajao yaar, mood kharab hai (Come over, guys, I’m in a bad mood)’. We went there and opened a bottle of wine. Dino said, ‘I think it’s the flashbacks, I should have made it simple. Why did we go tribal?’ Earlier, there was a draft that had a normal raaja-raani. It’s more relatable to people, right? But we felt like we wanted to go a little different… I was having a glass of wine, and I said, ‘I told you this!’”
Raabta starring Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput was directed by Dinesh Vijan.
