Thanks a zillion , Hindustan Times , for giving me the opportunity to attend the interactive session with Mahesh Bhatt and Stuart Sender ' How Cinema influences Culture and marketing " , held at the Bombay Stock Exchange.
Mr. Stuart Sender, renowned Oscar-nominated Hollywood filmmaker and journalist won audience's united approval with his unique observations such as ' The BSE transactions influence the marketing of cinema ' , ' Whatever happens in India , happens on large scale so makes big impact on the whole world' , 'Today's generation wants instant gratification as they are used to it on Social Media ' , ' Indian mythology has great heroes like Krishna , Arjuna , Rama etc.to inspire the Bollywood cinema ,while Hollywood had to create theirs fictionally ' .
Mr. Mahesh Bhatt , aka Alia's Daddy , advocated the Demand and Supply of his erotic films eg. Murder1-2-3 , Jism1-2-3 , Raaz1-2-3 , Woh Lamhen with , " I have to run a shop . I have to make movies which people pay to see. Pleasure seeking is be-all and end-all in today's times. I am catering to the 18-35 audience , which want erotica. Earlier cinema used to reveal the truth , now cinema hides the truth " . He summarized his reason of producing Murder , Jism , Raaz , Jism sequels with " You don't purchase tickets of City lights but of erotic movies and make them hit" . The audience , which comprised mostly of college students gave thunderous applause to Mr. Bhatt's hard-hitting statements.
