There was a time when Sanjay Gupta was known for his gritty crimes (albeit a heavily “borrowed” plot), with films like Zinda and Kaante. Unfortunately, his last film, Jazbaa with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, was more about green filters and a screaming mother, and less inspiring.
Hrithik Roshan comes with baggage too. His last film, Mohenjo Daro, didn’t do well at the box office after much hype and was possibly also the nail in the coffin for film studios to seriously consider their financial models. We don’t need to remind you about Roshan’s legal trouble with Kangana Ranaut, as it finds itself in the news every other day.
And so, suffice it to say, all eyes were on the trailer of their next film Kaabil.
