Mumbai, Sep 14 Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor, who has come out with a digital property called “Arjun Recommends”, said there is no room for bad content and for mediocrity as people are exposed to the best of cinema and also documentaries on OTT platforms.

“I’m extremely excited to be an actor living and working in today’s time. We are in the middle of a drastic change for the better and we should celebrate that. There is no room for bad content and definitely no room for mediocrity as people are exposed to the best of cinema, best of documentaries on the OTT,” Arjun said.

The “India’s Most Wanted” star said that the ride of OTT platforms has changed the game.

“If you see in the last couple of years, the quality of theatricals has become better. I do feel that we are witnessing the best period of disruption where each medium is pushing the other to do better, to produce content that stands out and are clutter-breaking. Today, truly content is king and it is the only thing that matters,” he said.

Arjun said that he would anyway prefer to sit at home and discover great shows and movies and binge on them than going out for a party.

“Watching disruptive, innovative content can expand one’s thinking about the kind of stuff audiences are watching in their homes. It can prepare us with information on what kind of films to make so that people feel the urge to come to the theatres,” he added

He also shared his vision for his social media property.

“‘Arjun Recommends’ is my attempt to bring together like-minded people who love to watch something good and clutter-breaking. This digital property is allowing me to engage with people from across India and understand from them what works,” he said.

New Delhi, Oct 19 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with members of the film industry on Saturday in the Capital, and several of Bollywood’s top stars were present at the event.

The focus was on inviting the film industry to create films and television shows that popularise Mahatma Gandhi and Gandhism, to mark the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation.

“Gandhi is synonymous with simplicity. His thoughts reverberate far and wide. The power of creativity is immense, and it is essential to harness this spirit of creativity for our nation. Several people from the world of films and television have been doing great work when it comes to popularising the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi,” noted Prime Minister Modi.

Spotted at the occasion were several eminent stars and filmmakers, including Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Jacqueline Fernandez, Imtiaz Ali, Ekta Kapoor, Anurag Basu, and Boney Kapoor.

“I would like to thank the Prime Minister for bringing us all together, that too for a cause such as this. I feel we need to re-introduce Gandhi ji to India and the world. The film industry can get self-obsessed and it is important we create work that is not only about business,” said Shah Rukh, about the need of the industry to come forward and make films on Gandhi that can help in the nation-building process.

Said Aamir, about the interaction session with the Prime Minister: “It was a wonderful interaction we had with the Prime Minister today. He was very inspiring, very warm and very deep in what he had to say. I want to appreciate the PM for thinking about this effort. As creative people, there is much we can do, and I assure the PM that we will do even more.”

For Kangana, the effort underlines the fact that Prime Minister Modi has recognised the power of the film industry.

“Modi ji is the first Prime Minister who is so inclusive of art and artistes and the film industry. Nobody has recognised the soft power of art and artistes in the country before. From the bottom of my heart and on behalf of the film industry, I thank the Prime Minister,” said Kangana.

Jacqueline said it was “an extreme honour be in the presence of PM Modi ji, and also to have a Prime Minister who is so willing to lend a helping hand to the film fraternity”.

After the session with the PM, producer Ekta Kapoor said she felt that “for the first time it seemed like there is someone who knows our industry better than us”.

Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali noted the tone of informality about the session helped. “The best thing about the session was that it was very informal. The film industry understands the informal language the best. The idea to make films on Gandhi ji will help reintroduce ourselves to Gandhi ji’s philosophy,” he noted.

Said filmmaker Anurag Basu: “When we make films, there are moments we wonder why are we doing this. Today, we got a reason, a direction. All the creative people here are extremely upbeat after the session. I feel we will see results in a year’s time.”

Producer Boney Kapoor added: “This government has always been sympathetic to the film industry right from (Atal Bihari) Vajpayee saab’s time when we were recognised as an industry. Since Mr Modi came in, he has made it a point to ensure every glitch is solved instantly.”
