Actress Raai Laxmi attended special screening of film ‘Julie 2’ along with Ravi Kishan, Manish Paul and Karan Grover on Friday in Mumbai. During media interaction, Laxmi stated that more than critical acclaim, box office collections matters to her.
When asked her what kind of numbers she is expecting for ‘Julie 2’, Laxmi said, “I don’t have much knowledge about box-office numbers but single screen audience are loving the film and there are people who will try to find logic so it’s a different set of audience altogether. I feel I purely have mass following. “
“Earlier, people thought that it was an erotic film so people felt embarrassed to watch film with their families so after watching the film, they come to know that it’s not an erotic film. There are mixed reports for the film but I feel it is okay because it is not my first and the last film and at end of the day more than critical acclaim, box-office collections matters to me”
Talking about response to the film, Laxmi said, “Our film has picked up actually. It had decent opening all over in India. Plus, in South market, audience has been appreciating the movie. There are mixed reports for the film but I feel it keeps going on. Every film has its own destiny. In next 3 days, we will see how it’s going to become with word of mouth. It’s a nice script with gripping screenplay”
“I am happy that audience purely has appreciated me and my work because they really saw through me working hard towards this role and especially down South, my fans loved the film because it’s very new film for south audience. The character that I played is very different from what it is. I don’t play this kind of roles and it’s very bold for South films and they think that this is one of my best performances of my career. I feel in coming days will be important for our film because there are no films releasing till next week plus people are willing to watch the film.”
Ravi Kishan who plays South superstar in Julie 2 also talked about the film, he said, “Julie 2 is the story about film industry’s dark side and I feel all kind of industries have dark side so this film touches that reality and hat’s off to Laxmi. She has worked so hard for this film and I feel she will get more acceptance from audience in future.”
Talking about future projects, Raai Laxmi said, “Very soon, I might do a Bollywood film which I am talking terms and I have completed to my two south films because for two tears I couldn’t able to take up any work because of Julie 2 shoot so now, I will be back to the flow of films”
Its stars Raai Laxmi, Ravi Kishan, Rati Agnihotri and Pankaj Tripaty in key roles.
