Rohit Shetty Says He ‘Must Take Ownership’ Of Cirkus’ Box Office Failure

New Delhi: The 2022 film ‘Cirkus,’ directed by Rohit Shetty, was one of the year’s most highly anticipated releases, but it bombed at the box office. The plot of this film starring Ranveer Singh and Pooja Hegde was adapted from Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’. The film’s brief run at the box office resulted in a total of Rs 32 crore only. Rohit finally spoke up about the film’s critical and commercial failure, saying that he has always been the one to accept his achievements or shortcomings.

In an interview with India Today, Rohit Shetty remarked that when a film doesn’t go well, he knows it since he is surrounded by people who are always honest with him. He discussed his other blockbuster flicks, like ‘Golmaal’ and ‘Singham’.

Rohit said,  “I make sure to surround myself with people who are honest with me. So, when a film doesn’t do well, I know it. Hence, I have always believed that both my successes and failures are mine. There is no point shying away from it. When a Singham or a Golmaal did well, that was also mine, so when a Zameen, a Dilwale or a Cirkus failed, that was also mine.”

He added, “I don’t see a point in blaming anything else. I know what we did. We, obviously, went wrong somewhere. It was made right after Sooryavanshi and in the middle of the (Covid-19) pandemic for the workers. It was a small film meant for the audience of that time.”

Rohit Shetty also said that he will make a comeback, either with the ‘Singham’, ‘Golmaal’, or some other projects. In fact, he even hinted that he would make ‘Cirkus’ again.

Soon, Rohit will be seen hosting ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 13’.
