Lot of detective films lined up is a coincidence: Rajeev
Mumbai: Rajeev Khandelwal, who will be seen as a detective in 'Samrat & Co', says it is mere a coincidence that a number of similar movies are lined up for the audience.
'Samrat & Co' is a detective thriller produced by Kavita Barjatya under the Rajshri banner.
Anurag Basu's 'Jagga Jasoos' starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, Dibakar Bannerjee's 'Detective Byomkesh Bakshi' with Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead, and Vidya Balan starrer 'Bobby Jasoos', are some of the movies in the detective genre, which are in the making.
"I think it is coincidence that quite a few detective films are being made today. I think Rajshri Productions had announced their plans of making of a detective film first. Then, after a gap of few months one started hearing about other detective films," Rajeev told us.
"There are 20-25 romantic-comedy films and south remakes being made in Bollywood, so it is ok to have more films in this space also," he added.
The actor said there is no competition among these films as they will not release simultaneously.
"I think it is too early to say anything about these films because I don't know what they are doing. The people who are doing these films like Ranbir Kapoor, Vidya Balan and Dibakar Banerjee are all talented. I think all these films are coming at different time, so there is no competition with each other," he said.
It was the banner (Rajshri Productions) and the script that attracted Rajeev towards 'Samrat & Co'.
"I said yes to this film within two hours or so. Otherwise I take time to give my nod for a film. I feel choosing the right kind of banner is important to get a wider and better release and a film does well only if the script is good," he said.
