Here’s what Sidharth Malhotra has to say about the failure of ‘Baar Baar Dekho’

Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ that released last Friday didn’t live up to audience’s expectations. The critics too didn’t like the movie and it has got a poor response overall. Of course, this has upset the actors of the movie and it was quite evident with Sid’s response on the film’s failure.

In a recent interview with a well-known daily, Sidharth was questioned about the failure of ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ and his response only expressed his state of mind. He said, “You definitely question yourself when so much hard work is not rewarded. When I heard the script for ‘Baar Baar Dekho’, it was one of the most exciting ideas I had come across. What a lovely thought! The heart was in the right place.The experience has made me more conscious of my future. Had ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ worked better, may be I wouldn’t be so careful with the modalities of making a film. But I am still going to choose only those scripts that I believe in. I stand by my choices. If I like a script and a role, it doesn’t matter how many other actors are there or how many scenes I have. All the films that I’ve done so far tell stories that I want to tell. Maybe we failed. But at least we tried something new. Now I know if I meet a first-time director, I’ll be wary. Or if I write a script I’ll be thinking anxiously about whether it works for me as a member of the audience.”

The movie has managed to collect approximately Rs 24.75 crore in five days and the numbers aren’t that great. The movie was directed by debutante Nitya Mehra, and was jointly produced by Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and featured actors Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles.
