Producer Boney Kapoor recently appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show with his daughter and actress Janhvi Kapoor to promote their upcoming film 'Mili'. This is the first time that the father-daughter duo has collaborated on a project. Boney Kapoor has been producing films from the 80s and has popular films like 'Mr. India', 'Pukar', 'Company', and 'Wanted', among others to his credit.
On the show, Boney Kapoor addressed the issue of Hindi films not performing as well as South films. Sharing his view on it, Kapoor said that South filmmakers have a passion that the Hindi film industry had till the 90s. He also spoke about how actors are more focused on the number of days that they have to put in for shooting rather than the story and the film.
"Kahi aise actors hai jo aise filmein karte hai jaha wo 25-30 din ke kaam pe paise poore chahiye. (There are actors who charge fully for 25-30 days of work). The intentions from the beginning is only wrong. I don’t want to name the actors but there are quite a few actors jo wo naaptol ke kaam karte hai. Wo bolte hai ‘kitne din ka kaam hai?’ Unka setup hota hai bohot convenient hona chahiye jaise ‘Heroine available honi chahiye, director available hona chahiye’ Toh picture kaha achi banegi. (There are few actors who ask questions like, 'how many days of work will it be? They want everything to be convenient like availability of herppine, director. Then how can one expected to make a good film)."
"Your first thought process is dishonest. Jab tak honesty nahi aayegi na, chahe wo actors ho, director ho, ya chahe wo producers ho, picture achi nahi chalegi," he added.
