Making small budget movie is less risky: Goldie Behl

Making small budget movie is less risky: Goldie BehlNew Delhi, March 9 -- Bollywood filmmaker Goldie Behl, whose latest release London Paris New York is receiving appreciation from both viewers and critics, feels that content not stars appeals to audiences.I don't think the presence of stars in a film matters to audiences. If the storyline is interesting and the film is made well, the audiences forget about the stars," Behl said.He added, "A big star cast might compel viewer to buy a ticket and watch a film. If the movie is not up to the expectations, then it won't leave right impact on the audiences. So at the end of the day, what matters is the story and how the film has been made, nothing else, he added.As Goldies last big budget directorial venture "Drona" (2008) failed miserably at the box office, now he thinks its safe to make small budget films with new comers as he has roped in new faces Aditi Rao Hydari and Pakistani actor Ali Zafar in London.Behl, husband of glamorous actress Sonali Bendre, said, Since they are low budget, such films address a particular class of audience. In 'London Paris New York', we have tried to cater to the urban Indian youth and I think we have managed to achieve that When you are focusing on a limited audience, not only the budget automatically becomes small but also comes complete clarity about what kind of film you want to make. That's what works for these small budget movies, he added.
