Kala Chashma, Sidharth Malhotra–Katrina Kaif‘s sizzling chemistry and Kat’s abs. That seemed like the recipe to success, right? Yet, contrary to expectations, Baar Baar Dekho tanked at the box office and raved poor reviews. In fact, the internet left no stone unturned to criticize the film. #BaarBaarMatDekho was trending all over and a video review of a man abusing the director of the film went viral. However, turns out this has not deterred Sidharth’s confidence and it seems like he has accepted the film’s failure quite gracefully. In an interview with The Quint, the actor poured his heart out about Baar Baar Dekho‘s failure.
He told The Quint:
You definitely question yourself when so much hard work is not rewarded. When I heard the script for Baar Baar Dekho it was one of the most exciting ideas I had come across. What a lovely thought! The heart was in the right place.The experience has made me more conscious of my future. Had Baar Baar Dekho worked better maybe I wouldn’t be so careful with the modalities of making a film. But I am still going to choose only those scripts that I believe in. I stand by my choices. If I like a script and a role it doesn’t matter how many other actors are there or how many scenes I have. All the films that I’ve done so far tell stories that I want to tell. Maybe we failed. But at least we tried something new. Now I know if I meet a first-time director I’ll be wary. Or if I write a script I’ll be thinking anxiously about whether it works for me as a member of the audience.
We love your spirit Sid!
