The fact that we are using Box Office numbers to determine if an actor is good or not…
It’s non sensical. It shows exactly what is wrong with Bollywood and why we don’t get quality content ever.
Box Office number never tell whether a actor is good or not. In fact, I can say with confidence that it does not tell you whether a movie is good or not.
You did the numbers game with Ranveer and Kangana, but now try doing this with KK Menon or Manoj Bajpayee. Surely they would’ve been “finished” quite a while ago but they aren’t. They are arguably some of the best working actors in Bollywood right now.
Box Office is 90% marketing and stardom (any Khan or Kapoor), 5% word of mouth and 5% the movie’s quality. Brahmastra was a box office success (400cr+), Gangs of Wasseypur was not.
