Disliked Half Girlfriend? Arjun Kapoor blames 'closed-mindedness' of critics for this

Arjun Kapoor has said that movies are made for audience after his latest movie Half Girlfriend dod not get rave reviews from critics

Arjun Kapoor has something to say to all critics who said ill things about his latest release Half Girlfriend. The movie in which Shraddha Kapoor romanced Arjun Kapoor did not get rave reviews. But Arjun is not affected by it. He said that movies are made for viewers and not critics. He said critics did not watch a  movie with an open mind like viewers.

“Each individual has a different point of view and I am no one who will change their opinion. Most of the time people (critics) want to see a certain type of film, but I feel, people should watch a film with an open mind just the way the audience watches it. The audience is more open to giving the film space and time to enjoy what it is meant for rather than having preconceived notions. I feel the audience is the most important part of filmmaking because, at the end of the day, you are making a film for them and not for a limited bunch of people who call themselves critics,” said Arjun.

Arjun went on to add that he was really happy the movie was performing well at the Box Office. He went on to say that at the end Box Office numbers are a barometer of success of any movie. “If people are buying tickets at the box office, then why should I feel negativity around me? I thrive on positivity in life rather than negativity,” he added.
