"Raita Phailane Do," Luv Ranjan's Classic Response to Haters
The filmmaker was blamed for his being a misogynist because of his latest film
Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety is a huge hit, however, the bricks are flying fast and furiously at its director Luv Ranjan who is being accused of making a misogynist film.
When I asked Ranjan about it he was as cool as a cucumber, “Anand Bakshi Saab warned us years ago. Kuch toh log kahenge logon ka kaam hai kehna. Let people say what they want to. Raita phailane do. You will find quibblers even if you take the best , most lavish wedding possible. Even there you will find guests who have a grouse about the food, the decoration, the hospitality and what have you. In every wedding there will be an uncle, aunt, grandfather, grandmother or cousin who is unhappy. I don’t see the need to pay attention to them.”
Luv Ranjan is now going to concentrate for a full year on producing films. “I am taking a year-long break from direction to set up directorial projects for all those who are part of my team. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety did not become a success because of me alone.it is a team effort. Now I am giving a break to my editor Akiv Ali as a director in a film starring Ajay Devgan. I think it’s very selfish for directors to not look out for their entire team.”
What did you think about the film?
