A suc­cess­ful film can be­come more so with pro­mo­tions. But if any film does well, that’s be­cause of its mer­its

Ac­tor Naseerud­din Shah (left), lead ac­tor of his lat­est film Char­lie Kay Chakkar Mein feels that a 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 this film, this fact is proved,” he said about the film’s low-key pro­mo­tion at a screen­ing of the film.

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 Tal­var, 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.
