Sardar Ka Grandson Judged By Its Message Not Collection : Arjun Kapoor : Sardar Ka Grandson is a bollywood romantic drama featuring Arjun Kapoor, Rakul Preet and Neena Gupta in lead roles. The movie will be released on 18 May 2021 on Netflix. Earlier it was decided to premier it at cinema halls, but as we can see the second wave of corona is more dangerous, so, premiering movie at cinema hall is equally not safe at all, therefore, the makers of the hindi romantic drama ‘Sardar Ka Grandson’ has found it more ideal to stream the movie on the OTT Platform ‘Netflix’.
The statement came from the lead actor of the movie Arjun Kapoor, who said “Sardar Ka Grandson Judged by Its Message, Not Collection”. By this statement, he wants to convey that his movie Sardar Ka Grandson should be judged by the message that it is conveying to the society and not by how much collection it made on box office.
The hindi romantic drama is based on the story that how an obedient grandson Amreek Singh (played by Arjun Kapoor), goes to great lengths to fulfill the last wish of his grandmother Rupinder Kaur (played by Neena Gupta) which was to reunite his ailing grandmother with her ancestral home, which turns into a complicated, comic cross-border affair.
Bollywood Star Arjun Kapoor Said Sardar Ka Grandson Transcends Box Office
This pandemic has led to the postponement of a number of films in the country. But keeping in mind the seriousness of this issue, Kapoor said that at these testing times it is best to release the movie in an online platform. He said, “There are films that are still holding because they will come to theatres and they should. With our film, we could have also waited but we felt we have got an equally good platform to connect with the audience. We believe the world needs this film to be out there. It is a far more poignant film. It is a story that goes beyond Friday, Saturday and Monday’s business”.
In addition, the 35 years old actor said that this film is beyond box of collections, so it should be judged based on its message that it is conveying to the society and not on the basis of how much profit it made. “I feel ‘Sardar Ka Grandson’ transcends box office. I believe this film should not get caught up with the box office merits. It should be caught up in the merits of what it is trying to say. I thought that we have to put a film about family at a time like this. A human emotion story that could connect with people beyond who are Indians or Asians or people who understand our language.”
The movie will be releasing on OTT platform Netflix on 18th of May 2021. The movie also features other casts like Neena Gupta, Rakul Preet Singh, John Abraham, Kanwaljit Kaur and Aditi Rao Hydari.
Arjun Kapoor, in his interview with PTI also stated that there is also a possibility of movie to get released in theatres whenever they open. “When theatres open, maybe it will release in theatres as well. But I feel very happy as I have a lot of platforms to connect with the audiences — from TV to stage shows to theatres to digital platforms. I have a 360 degree opportunity of engaging with people.”
