Actor Alia Bhatt has spoken about stars and if their salaries should be reassessed when their films perform poorly at the box office. In a new interview, Alia said that in the present times, content is the driving force that will bring money to the box office. She also added that 'stardom comes from the content' Alia's remark on flop films and stars comes a few days after her husband-actor Ranbir Kapoor's film Shamshera fared badly at the box office. Shamshera earned ₹60 crore globally till July 31. The film was made on a massive budget of ₹150 crore.
Speaking with Indian Express, Alia opened up on stars in the modern context, “What makes a star? It’s the love, but there is also a certain kind of star who will bring in the money at the box office. But that cannot happen now without content, ultimately it’s the power of the content that is pulling the audience to cinemas. Of course, there is a certain larger-than-life experience on the big screen which you cannot replace, but the depth of good content standing the test of time is something people should go for, and do go for. So, the stardom comes from the content you give to the people.”
