`Jal` not an art film: Kirti Kulhari
Mumbai: Actress Kirti Kulhari, who is busy promoting her forthcoming movie "Jal", says it`s not an art film but a complete Bollywood masala entertainer.
The movie, directed by first-timer Girish Malik, has done its rounds at various film extravaganzas, including the Busan International Film Festival. This, Kirti believes, must not paint a wrong picture of the movie.
"It`s a myth that once a film goes for festivals, it doesn`t do well commercially. I think some recent films have changed that notion. As far as `Jal` is concerned, it`s not an art film. It`s a complete Bollywood masala film, but it`s not a no-brainer," Kirti told.
The movie is said to have taken around three years to get a commercial release, but Kirti says the wait has been worth it.
"I used to get nervous thinking why it`s taking so long for the release, but this film has been shot on a large canvas and it has to do with lot of graphics.
"This film needed that much of time, but its looking very fresh and fits in today`s film. It was worth the wait," she added.
"Jal" also features Purab Kohli and Tannishtha Chatterjee. The film is slated to release April 4.
