Mumbai: ‘Lootera’ received critical appreciation and a mixed response at the ticket window. For the film`s lead actor Ranveer Singh, a film`s memories are more important than its box office business.
Directed by Vikramaditya Monwane, ‘Lootera’ released July 5.
"I think the most important thing is a film`s memory. I don`t think collections are the most important thing," Ranveer told reporters Monday on the sidelines of the period drama`s success party.
"The film should be like by anyone who sees it. There are enough people who watch films, which are in the so-called Rs.100 crore club, but when they come out, they say the film was not so good."
"Everybody watches such films, but all of them don`t like it. Whoever watches your film should love it or like it, like they have `Lootera`," added the actor who teamed up with Sonakshi Sinha in the movie.
Sonakshi, who has a host of films like ‘Dabangg’, ‘Rowdy Rathore’ and ‘Son of Sardar’ that raked in over Rs.100 crore to her credit, feels box-office collections and critical acclaims are equally important.
"They are both equally important. I am fairly lucky that so early in my career I have been able to see both of them - box-office collections and `Lootera` got so much critical acclaim. I am happy that it happened so soon in my career. I am thankful," said the actress here.
Ranveer will next be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s ‘Ramleela’ and Yash Raj Film`s ‘Gunday’, while Sonakshi is part of Tigmanshu Dhulia`s ‘Bullett Raja’.
