Mumbai: After Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017) for Shah Rukh Khan and Race 3 (2018) for Salman Khan, Thugs of Hindostan, in the manner of speaking, could well be the first of Aamir Khan’s high profile flops.
One reason why these films find themselves in such a category even though they have been among the highest grossers of the year they released in or enjoyed some of the biggest opening day collections is because they appear to have failed in recovering their cost from the theatrical run.
And the man behind such a great debacle is none other than Victor Acharya. Victor has a reputation of announcing big films and then giving us some Hollywood copied flicks. Tashan was a great example of the Victor Acharya genre of movies. And he is facing the brunt of giving some pathetic movies over the years. There is a rumor that he is currently learning mimicry to use a different voice to keep an actor engaged to hear his script. There have been reports that many A-list actors have disconnected their phones after Victor Acharya says ‘hello’.
Many actors are avoiding to work with Victor and mimicry is a nice way for Victor to at least talk to an actor for 5-10 minutes till the actor actually realizes that it is Victor who is calling.
