New Delhi:

Director Onir has shared his thoughts on big box office clashes in Bollywood, a day after Karan Johar cryptically hinted at the makers of Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi’s Merry Christmas for releasing the movie on the same day as Yodha, which is backed by Dharma Productions. Onir, a National Award-winning filmmaker, tweeted, “Big Bollywood releases get so upset when there is another big budget release the same day and they talk about how we should all care for each other in the industry but don’t think for a second when they deprive a small budget indie film of a tiny number of good shows to survive.” 

Now look at what Karan Johar, who is making a return with Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, wrote on Threads. “Clashing on a date without the courtesy of a phone call is hopefully not the way forward for the studios and producers… If we don’t stand united in these tough and challenging theatrical days then calling us a fraternity is futile.” 

For those who don’t remember, Karan Johar and Ajay Devgn had a much-publicised falling out after the filmmaker decided to release Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with Shivaay.

Meanwhile, a lot of people on Twitter supported Onir’s opinion. 

A user wrote, “Couldn’t agree more…While most of those small-budget movies are 100 times better than the Big Bollywood release. While the Big Bollywood release has got is Karan Johar cosy grandeur makeover from the Original let’s see how critics acclaim it.”

Another simply wrote “true” under the post. 

A person called Karan Johar “the biggest hypocrite alive.”

Some said that “clashes are bound to happen” as there are only “52 Fridays in a year”.

“Nowadays there’s an ego satisfying battle going in Bollywood where people portray themselves as actors getting films, PR, attention but true artists who represent cinema Kay Kay Menon, Vijay Raaz, Sanjay Mishra, Vinay Pathak are yet to receive their credit,” read a comment.

Yodha stars Sidharth Malhotra, Raashii Khanna and Disha Patani.
