Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s move to ban Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes will not make any problem on the release of ‘Rock On 2’, says actor Farhan Akhtar who firmly believes that nothing can stop the fans from coming to cinemas and watching the movie once they decide that the film is worth watching.
The actor will be playing the lead role in the movie ‘Rock On 2’ and is also the co-producer of the film, doubts whether this will be the right time to release the film.
Farhan further went on to say that “Finally, it’s not about how much you market your film. If intense marketing helped sell a film to the audience, every film would be a hit. I feel the public makes up its mind whether it wants to see a film or not early in the process of a film’s marketing. If they’ve decided they want to see a film, nothing can stop them”.
After the official announcement by PM Modi banning the high currency notes, there was a rumour that the makers of the film are thinking to re-schedule the release of the film to avoid the situation of the currency shortage among the viewers.
But the producer Ritesh Sidhwani made an official announcement shooting down all the rumours and said “Wrong, we are releasing on schedule this Friday.”
Infact, the PVR cinemas has already decided not to charge expediency fee on usage of cards for purchase of tickets for ‘Rock On 2’. Not only this, Paytm has also started a new offer of ‘buy one, get one free’ for the first week on the release of the movie.
