In the last few years, the reign of the Khans has been overtaken by a bunch of fresh faced new actors, who prefer content over your stereotypical Bollywood masala films.
This became all the more obvious when films like Zero, Race 3 or Thugs Of Hindostan were major flops last year but on the other hand, films like Badhai Ho, Andhadhun and other OTT films stole the show.
Recently, a major media house interviewed Nawazuddin Siddiqui on the same. Nawaz is one actor who is said to have kick started this era of content driven films in India.
He disagrees, however. He said that actors are not responsible for the content driven films being made now. The change came in many years ago with directors like Ram Gopal Verma or Anurag Kashyap.
He said that it is just a coincidence that the timing of these content driven films being made matches with the decline of the superstars of Bollywood.
He also said that the Khans had nothing to do with this. He feels that it is wrong to blame the Khans. Just because they had one or two flop films does not mean their era is over.
What do you have to say about his views? Do you agree with them?
