Recently, at Dilwale’s song launch event, Shah Rukh Khan said that Ranveer Singh- Deepika Padukone starrer Bajirao Mastani is a niche film. Deepika totally disagreed with this statement and expressed what she feels at another event.
SRK said, “The other film (Bajirao Mastani) is also made by friends. Our genre is more family and happy-go-lucky kind. Their genre is niche and historical. For both films, audience will come in at different time and watch it. Both are really nice movies.”
On being questioned about SRK’s statement, Dippy said, “I wouldn’t call Bajirao as niche at all. In fact, one of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s strength is, that in a film like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam or Devdas or Ram Leela, or even Black, he has his way of story-telling and yet he makes his movies globally appealing.”
“I don’t know what Shah Rukh meant when he called the film niche, but both are totally different genres. I have worked with both the directors and know what both of them have to offer are very, very different. Even as an audience you won’t be able to compare the two, one is action, comedy romance while Bajirao Mastani is completely different,” the actress added.
