Hardeep Grewal Exclusive Interview: Be it Bollywood, Pollywood, or Tollywood, the film industry has been facing a crisis-like situation with no recent films working at the box office in recent times. In the meanwhile, Punjabi actor Hardeep Grewal is keeping his faith in his content and the audience for his upcoming film 'Batch 2013'.
During an exclusive interview with PTC Punjabi, Hardeep Grewal said that the filmmakers need to trust their work and have faith. "If our work was not up to the mark, it won't work but if we have done a brilliant job, it will definitely work," he said.
Talking about the clash between his film 'Batch 2013' and Akhil's 'Teri Meri Gal Ban Gayi', Hardeep Grewal said that the gap between the announcement of the release date of both the films is just three hours.
He then revealed that they had already decided to announce the release date on August 5 as his last film 'Tunka Tunka' was released on the same date. "September 9 was available and hence, we decided to go for the same. I even called Jagdeep Sidhu and checked the release date of 'Moh' and Jagdeep gave a go-ahead and then we locked the date for the film," said Hardeep Grewal during an exclusive interview with PTC Punjabi.
He further said that there was so much content made before Covid-19 and thus, the producers have to release the films now. "There is so much content and since the quantity is too much, we have to release it. We should not take it the wrong way. Such things should be considered healthy competition and not a conspiracy," he said.
On being asked about the current situation in the film industry, he said, "In view of OTT, we have to be perfect since no one knows what kind of content the audience wants to see."
He then recalled the release of 'Tunka Tunka'. "I was advised not to release the film because the theatres had just opened after the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the film did well and then the same people said, you guys were lucky to have released the film back then."
"There are no such things as a safe place or safe date. We just need to trust our work and have faith. A film will not work, only if we don't have worked well. If our work is good, it will work," he concluded.
