Anil Sharma on making a ‘mass entertainer’
Recently, Anil said that creating a mass entertainer that is an amalgamation of real and fiction is a daunting task. Speaking to news agency PTI, Anil said, “It is not easy to make a mass entertainer. It is difficult because you have to show this larger-than-life hero in a way that whatever he does seems real yet entertaining. While making a realistic movie you can talk to the person and others on whom the story is based, but to add heroism in a film is challenging.”
