South actor Prithviraj questions the 100 Crore Club
By: Faisal Saif
Recently while promoting his upcoming action thriller Aurangzeb, South Indian heart-throb Prithviraj said that he only believes in maximum number of people coming and watching a film. He also said 100 Crore Club cannot be sold on a success parameter.
“If a film is made on the budget of 130 Crore and earns 100 Crore, Do you consider it as a Successful film? What is the definition of a successful film? A film that has been made on the budget of 75 Crores and made 100 Crores, Or a film that got made on the budget of hardly 5 Crores and goes on to earn 60 Crores? So it is all a question of perspective. 100 Crore Club sold on a parameter of success is actually sad. If a film makes 100 Crore, It’s great. That’s why we make films.” said Prithviraj.
The actor also further added his personal experience of Film making down south as a Producer. But he insisted that one should also talk about small films which becomes a Blockbuster and goes into the 100 Crore club category. “100 Crore club indicates many people came to cinema halls and saw the film. Why do we talk about the film which made in 90 Crore and earned 100 Crore? Why don’t we talk about films which are made on the budget of 3.5 Crore and earns 100 Crore? These films don’t fit in the 100 Crore Club category? I believe in maximum number of people coming and watching the film.” added Prithviraj.
