MUMBAI: Bollywood King, Shah Rukh Khan confessed that Dilwale can’t repeat the magic of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ).
Shah Rakha Khan said that Dilwale can not rule the Bollywood industry for twenty years.
“I don’t think (so), as time has changed. When we started the film (DDLJ) in 1990S, there was this concept of golden jubilee, silver jubilee and platinum jubilee. Now the function has changed and that era is over. I think audience is more accessible now and also the number of theatres are more. Unfortunately, nowadays we talk about two weeks only.” SRK said.
Shah Raukh Khan gave the examples of block buster hit movies like Aamir Khan starrer PK, Salman Khan starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prabhas starrer Baahubali and said that theses movies also ruled the Bollywood industry but for just limited time.
He also said that “There were 150 theatres in the past and now the number has increased to over 40,000. As many as 11 to 12 crore people watch big films like PK, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Baahubali. Also, it’s nothing to do with numbers, but accessibility.”
