Bollywood actor and filmmaker Rajat Kapoor, who has featured in over 30 films, says he doesn’t watch Hindi films.
Kapoor directs in the same language but says he doesn’t watch because there are few good films. The films directed by him include Mixed Doubles and Mithya.
Rajat Kapoor acted in over 30 film including Bheja Fry, Dil Chahta Hai and Phas Gye Re Obama, in which his acting was appreciated.
He told reporters; “I don’t watch Hindi films. 95 percent of the films being made are not sensible. And amongst the 5 percent, 0.5 percent are decent. I am not interested.”
“For me, a film is about making a shot. I come out empty after watching these films. But everybody has the right to make their kind of films and its fine,” Kapoor added.
Kapoor praises Marathi films and said Marathi films are more interesting than Bengali.
“Indian cinema is a big term. Marathi films are very good and they are making some good films. I saw Harsihchandrachi Factory and it was fabulous. In Hindi, I liked Gangs of Wasseypur,” he said.
“Bengali films have nothing to offer at the moment,” he added.
Mr. Kapoor is currently promoting Aankhon Dekhi, a quirky drama about a character named Raje Bauji, played by Sanjay Mishra.
Film’s story talks about the eventful life of Raje Bauji, who lives in a small house with his family.
