Zoya Akhtar won`t spend money to watch `Grand Masti`
Mumbai: Director Zoya Akhtar is critical of the recently released adult comedy ‘Grand Masti’ and says that it is the kind of film she would never give her money to.
"`Grand Masti`... I wouldn`t even enter (a theatre) to watch it. I have seen the promo and I know that it is not for me. It is appalling, it will make me very irritable and there is no way I am going to give money to this film," the 40-year-old said here Friday.
Starring Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani and Riteish Deshmukh, ‘Grand Masti’ has also entered the Rs. 100 crore club. The film faced a lot of flak for its overtly sexual and explicit content.
Zoya says she has no issues with a bad film which makes money. But she feels awful when good films fail to get enough business.
"I feel sad when good films don`t make money. When bad films make money, I am like `something had to come out of it, he has no talent so he might as well make some cash`. But a good filmmaker should make money," she said at the launch of film critic Anupama Chopra`s book ‘100 Films To See Before You Die’.
Asked which film she feels could have made more money, Zoya said, "`Udaan`".
"It could have made a lot more money. My own film `Luck By Chance` could have done a lot better," she added.
