Rohit Shetty inching close to Dada Kondke’s record
There was a time in the Hindi film industry that ‘jubilee of a film is considered a big thing. But the trend has changed now in Bollywood with many of the production houses going corporate and targeting the Rs.100 crore mark.
Now the maker of eight consecutive hit films that touched the Rs.100 crore mark, and the only filmmaker to do so -Rohit Shetty is within striking distance of the maker of nine Marathi films that hit the silver jubilee mark, Dada Kondke, well-known as a director of renowned Marathi films that had made it to the Guiness Book of World record over 25 years ago and the only actor filmmaker to deliver nine silver Jubilee hits in a row.
Dada Kondke, well known as a director of renowned Marathi films had made it to the Guinness Book of World Records over 25 years ago for being the only filmmaker to deliver nine silver jubilee hits in a row.
For the unversed, silver jubilees was when a film ran in the theatres for a consecutive 25 weeks.
“Like Dada’s films, Rohit’s films are also targeted purely at the masses and he makes no bones about it. He is clear that he is here to entertain the audiences and that is one reason why he manages to give back-to-back hits,” says a trade analyst.
Rohit is next expected to make Sooryavanshi which is on the life of former ATS chief Raghuvanshi. Based on an idea by late writer Jalees Sherwani, the Akshay Kumar-starrer has been bankrolled by Karan Johar.
