Multi-starrers are inevitable: SidFeb 19, 2012 HP
Actor Siddharth is of the opinion that multi-starrers are inevitable. At a time when films have to make their money in the first two weeks, it is but natural that our superstars will follow in the footsteps of NTR, ANR, Krishna and the likes. Not just multi-starrers, more and more producers will show keen interest in making multi-lingual films.
In a recent interview, Sid said, "Gone are the days when the audience used to go to the theatre as if it was a temple. These days' films have to make their money in the first two weeks. Given this scenario, there is an increasing tendency among the producers to make multi-lingual films."
He continues, "At this rate, multi-starrers are only inevitable. We first need to put the term in the right perspective. If two or more superstars team up, you call it a multi-starrer. For example SVSC is an example of a multi-starrer. Rang De Basanti is an example of ensemble cast. If a superstar here is willing to rope me in, I will be happy to be part of the film (provided, of course, he likes the script, which, he says, is always his first criterion). I say that we are living in exciting times. "Let's wait and watch if we are going to see more and more films like SVSC in the coming years.
