'Audiences want content-driven films, but we don't deliver'

Mumbai, Jan 9 (IANS) Actor Rajeev Khandelwal believes that audiences have always wanted to see different kind of films but a certain perception has hampered subject-driven movies from reaching movie buffs.

Mumbai, Jan 9 — Actor Rajeev Khandelwal believes that audiences have always wanted to see different kind of films but a certain perception has hampered subject-driven movies from reaching movie buffs.

"Generally, people say that content-driven films that have strong scripts do not work and neglect them as off-beat films," the 37-year-old said here in a group interview.

He says that he had two such films "Aamir" and "Shaitan" in his career that did work.

"But people say that public does not want to see such films and so release them on a small scale. But I have always felt that audience always want to see such films but we never tried to give it to them," he added.

"'Kahaani' was also such a movie and was released on a bigger scale. 'Table No. 21' is the second example after 'Kahaani' where the filmmakers released the film and it ran on word-of-mouth publicity and also did good business," he added.

Directed by Aditya Datt, "Table No. 21" also stars Tena Desae and Paresh Rawal and it has done a decent business at the box office.

Rajeev believes that "Table No. 21" success will motivate filmmakers to have a bigger release of such films.

"I feel it's a great example to all those producers who don't have enough confidence to release such kind of films on a bigger scale. So, I am very happy and the film will motivate such filmmakers and producers," he said.
