Randeep Hooda in an interview with Pinkvilla shared his experiences during the shoot of the films, even after the movie was released a year ago it has been entertaining audience to date, Randeep said he received an overwhelming response for the film produced by the Russo brothers, “It was as if you know I went to the Olympics, with India against Australia and America may be, and we did well. So that was the kind of response that I got from the audience. And the action of course is mind-blowing, so that was something new for me. It opened up my global audience, whether it’s the media there or the audience. On the back of this movie, it released in the pandemic ground last year at this time and still all over again we are sitting at home. So it might not be a bad idea to watch it again, I might,” Randeep shared.
He explained that the movie was anyway going to be released on Netflix, he said “It was going to release on OTT because on a big screen this movie will have another kind of spectacle. So there was a plan to release it on a very brief scale in the cinemas, but it was always going to reach people through OTT. So this was a no-brainer,” said the actor.
While asked about Bollywood not celebrating the movie even after one year of its release Randeep replied, “Well I’m quite used to it. It does happen time and again, well that’s okay. Maybe they didn’t like my acting, liked my action maybe, that’s why they didn’t speak up. But yeah there is a lot of hooplas that happens you know amongst people within the industry which did not happen for this. But, hey maybe as I said before maybe you didn’t like my acting”.
