Kangana Ranaut has a new theory about Dhaakad failure

Actress Kangana Ranaut was sure that her action film 'Dhaakad' is going to revolutionize the way action and female led movies are made in Bollywood. However, when it actually got to theatres, 'Dhaakad' turned out to be one of the biggest disasters of the year. In a recent event in Himachal Pradesh, Kangana talked about this failure and stated that audience failed to connect with it because her character was too westernised.

Kangana often slams Bollywood for promoting western culture while ignoring our roots and this time she criticised her own work to make a point. Talking about the success of films like 'Kantara' and 'PS-1', Kangana said, “There are various kinds of analysis about why a film works or doesn’t work. If you look at hit films, all of them have Indian roots. Look at Kantara. These films show India on a micro level, based on devotion and spirituality. Ponniyin Selvan-1 is also about Cholas."

Coming to her film, the actress stated, "Bollywood has gone too far away from Indian culture and become westernised. Having been influenced by that and with the trend to make westernised films, people are unable to relate with the films. Even my film hasn’t worked this year. Usse bhi mujhe yehi seekh mili ki shayad bohot zyada ek westernised character jo hai, log ussey identify nahin kar payein."

Kangana concluded by saying, "For the first time, Indians are feeling proud of their culture, attire, colour, and they want to connect with that pride. Whoever is able to connect them with that pride, they are rooting for them, like an RRR. I’ve seen that people in South are connected to their culture and religion and this is something that people across the country are finding very inspirational."
