Having said that, recently during a media interaction, when it was said that the film was a success, Arshad was quick enough to respond saying it was not a successful film and in fact asked the media personnel not to lie.
According to a report by a news portal, during the media interaction, Arshad even added, “It was a good film, but unfortunately it happened, some things work, some things don’t. I feel it just went through a bad patch, there were various things that made it not as successful as it should have been. It is a big film, it should’ve made a lot more money, but it is still not a loss, it covered its money.”
When asked if he thinks that film didn’t do well because it was not released on an OTT platform, Arshad said, “No, I don’t think it is the OTT effect. Okay, I’ve got an answer for that, but I’m not going to say it. Let’s not get into it, it is a different space.”
