Rohit Shetty: Commercial films have become a brand now

Did you have to go through that struggle? My take about work – whether it’s films or Khatron ke Khiladi – is that honesty needs to be there. You either do it or show them how to do it. He also described his journey in the industry as one that started with “hate but has become about love.”
Q. Doesn’t that create pressure? It’s always been like this. Do you think because you have gotten film actors to do great action, you understand different temperaments. Q. I wouldn’t know if they talk behind my back. View this post on Instagram

Q. You build their confidence. Be it a show or a film, you need to be honest. It’s because of the media. We are lucky enough. Today also, less commercial films are made, but now the hatred has turned into love. It’s a big responsibility. © IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd

Filmmaker Rohit Shetty is currently hosting Colors TV show Khatron Ke Khiladi 10. I have never felt doing a show has affected my film career,” says the filmmaker, who is currently promoting the latest season of the reality show post which he will jump into the promotions of his upcoming Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif starrer Sooryavanshi. How do you keep the contestants calm? 📣 The Indian Express is now on Telegram. In fact, I keep telling other directors, young filmmakers to not have a gap of three-four years between their films and produce work faster. Where does the show fit in your work, considering you make such big films back-to-back? Why are Karan (Johar) and I called brands? Does this help you engage with the contestants? Not really. And it helps. Q. Where films are concerned, some will do well, some will not. “I keep telling them to work faster. You can’t do more than this. @sonypicturesin

Q. Q. You have made filmmaking look easy because of how much fun your movies have been. Nothing more will happen on a Friday. There’s no fear. In the industry also? You have to stay calm, whether it’s a film actor or a contestant. Staying calm is most important when one is doing a stunt. Films have been in the making from before, directors have come before us but the difference is that today there is a face to the name. So, everything is manageable. In between my films, I have come back for this show. Does that make you feel that you aren’t just a film director, but also a popular face? That’s how you start becoming a brand.

Filmmaker Rohit Shetty does not understand why his contemporaries take “years to make films”, while he directs movies, shoots for Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi and still finds enough time for himself.

But the down side of it is that such filmmakers are also put down by people with the claim that their films are “too easy” to make. Now if you are coming to watch a Rohit Shetty film, you know what to expect. There was a struggle in the beginning because very few commercial films were being made then. I know. You try to take care. Q. View this post on Instagram

Love and Action have no boundaries…Bad Boys for Life…releasing 31st January 2020 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and English in a theatre near you! Thanks to the media, people know us. But commercial films have become a brand now. It must be existing today also, but now they are scared of me and hence, they can’t say that to my face (laughs). I have made five films while coming back for consecutive seasons of Khatron Ke Khiladi. I can’t deny that. Doesn’t it affect your film career? But at the end of the day, it shouldn’t be that you feel, ‘Oh, I should have put in more hard work or should have been more honest.’
