Comeback Kings


In Bollywood, one cannot have an uninterrupted run. "When your first film doesn't do well, it is more of a pressure," says Shukla. "When I chose to make OMG: Oh My God, I was certain the content would be liked, but I was a little apprehensive about the box-office success," he adds. It was the waiting period that was a major concern for Sircar. After Yahaan was critically acclaimed, he got his second film Shoebite soon after. "However, in Bollywood, one can never predict. Vicky Donor has certainly been a huge turning point in my career. It has obviously increased my confidence," adds Sircar.

Sometimes, failures can turn out to be blessings in disguise. Basu recalls how most people had written him off, and few expected him to come back with a good film. "The good thing about making Barfi! was that there was hardly any pressure. However, when it did hit a bull's eye, it made me content," he says.
