Naseeruddin Shah: Film’s success depends on merit not promotions

Charlie-Kay-Chakkar-MeinNaseeruddin Shah, lead actor of upcoming suspense thriller “Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein” feels that film’s success does not depend on its promotion but merits.

“I don’t think any film can be successful with promotions. A successful film can become more successful with promotions. But if any film does well, that’s on the basis of its merits. So I’m hoping that with ‘Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein’, this fact is either proved,” he said to a query about the film’s low-key promotion at screening of the film on Thursday.

The screening was attended by producer Karan Arora, director Manish Srivastav and other cast members including Naseeruddin and Anand Tiwari.

Naseeruddin, who is one of the most senior actors in the industry, also disputed the term “realistic” saying that even his successful thriller “A Wednesday” was termed “realistic” but that wasn’t exactly the case. He also refuted comparisons with “Talwar”, claiming that there are numerous viewpoints in the film like “Roshomon”.

“‘Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein’ story is very simple but strangely it’s narrated in a complicated manner. Even this is an imaginary situation which may or may not be true. The treatment to the film is definitely very edgy and a thriller kind,” he said.

“Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein” was released on Friday.
