Mumbai: Our very own Aamir Khan has taken China by storm with the tremendous success of ‘Dangal’ and ‘Secret Superstar’, and it seems filmmakers from the country are keen to replicate that success in India.
Popular fantasy-adventure film ‘Monster Hunt 2’, which has set multiple records in China like the first installment, is all set to release in India.
The recent example of the blockbuster success of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ has proved that audiences in India are taking to well-made action sequences and effective visuals, something ‘Monster Hunt 2’ hopes to entertain the moviegoers with.
The director of the film, Raman Hui, was asked about the reasons why the films have turned out to be big successes to which he replied, “Well, I don’t think there is one thing. You cannot say that if you do A and B then you will be successful. I hope it never works that way, even for us. It’s never like that. While working on Monster Hunt 1, we were so nervous because we didn’t know if the audience would accept that. We thought, at the time, that we should do it otherwise no one is going to make something like that. So we, with Bill Kong, who is so brave and supports everything, we went ahead and did it. Then we didn’t expect it to be a huge success. I was just hoping that if Bill can break even at least he’s not losing a lot of money. But it turned out to be a huge success and then I could do it again.”
He concluded, “In this one, they come to realize that maybe setting Wuba free at the end of Monster Hunt 1 was not the right choice. If you love someone, even if there are a lot of obstacles, you should be with them.”
‘Monster Hunt 2’ is being released in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu by MVP Pictures and will hit the theatres on 11 May....
