Rohit Shetty is getting a lot of praise for Sooryavanshi as well for making the wise decision to release the action thriller in theaters. Meanwhile, the filmmaker recently gave an adequate answer in an interview, when asked about the portrayal of “good Muslim, bad Muslim” in the film. The director defended the question like a pro and simply asked why his three villains from the previous film, who were Hindus, weren’t the problem.
The Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif star has already broken several records and still, it’s going well as moviegoers are watching the movie in large numbers. The box office numbers show that the film is a huge success with the audience.
Recently, Rohit Shetty sat down with Quint reporter Abira Dhar to discuss Sooryavanshi’s success, however the Singham director seemed upset when the reporter spoke of showing Muslims in a good and bad light, even what called ‘troublesome’. Responding to the question, Rohit said: “If I ask you a question, Jaykant Shikre was a Hindu a Marathi, in this universe, secondly, a Hindu god was there, and then in Us a Maharashtrian again. In these three negative forces they were Hindus. Why isn’t that a problem?
Later, when Abira Dhar tried to defend her position, Rohit Shetty interrupted and said: “If there is a terrorist who is from Pakistan, what caste will he be? It changed my point of view about some journalists that I used to like. That, oh, they are portraying it as I have parenthetically seen someone who writes about bad Muslims being preached by higher caste Hindus, which is very wrong. We never think that way. “
Sooryavanshi revolves around a group of terrorists, led by Jackie Shroff’s character Omar Hafeez, who plan major attacks after the 1993 Mumbai explosions, and the character of Akshay Kumar along with Ajay Devgn’s Bajirao Singham and Simmba de Ranveer Singh make an alliance to stop his grand plans.
Meanwhile, the Federation of Film Employees of West India (FWICE) congratulated Rohit Shetty on the success of her latest release starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif. The federation also praised the filmmaker for his continued support of film industry workers when Covid-19 was in full swing.
‘Sooryavanshi’, according to the federation, had given the industry hope that audiences will return to theaters.
