Director, producer Shekhar Kapur believes that the content of the movie is more important than the platform. Memorizing the movie ‘Mr.India’ on his twitter handle, Shekar stated that 99% of passionate of ‘Mr. India has watched the movie on a small screen rather than on a big screen. This is all because of the good content.
The twitter handle of Shekhar Kapur read, “The fear is that films meant for the big screen will never be as effective on small screens like TV, video or phone. 99% of ardent fans of #Mr.India have never ever seen Mr. India on the big screen. And continue to enjoy it on smaller screens. It’s the content that matters!
Meanwhile, on the work front, Shekhar Kapur has given many knockout films. As per the reports, Shekhar Kapur was all set to make his futuristic magnum opus ‘Paani’ under Yash Raj Film’s banner, with late Sushant Singh Rajput. However, the film, which was initially announced at the Cannes Film Festival, never really got helmed. The film, ‘Paani’, was shelved in 2015 after Yash Raj Films backed out as the producers.
About Sushant Singh Rajput, he was reportedly found hanging in his Mumbai apartment. However, no suicide note was found in the house. The post-mortem report has proved that it is death due to suicide. It’s no secret that Sushant was going through very tough times and was depressed from the last six months. No one in the industry stood up for him nor did they lend a helping hand. Many claim it’s because he was made to feel an outsider in Bollywood and was never welcomed as one of their own.
