This is the last era of superstars: Priyadarshan

Mumbai: With films taking a “more realistic turn”, director Priyadarshan believes the allure of superstars will slowly be replaced by the power of good storytelling.

One of the most bankable filmmakers, Priyadarshan has worked with some of the biggest names in Bollywood — from Salman Khan in the 2005 drama “Kyon Ki…”, Shah Rukh Khan in “Billu” (2007), to Akshay Kumar, his long-time collaborator on hits like “Hera Pheri”, “Garam Masala” and “Bhool Bhulaiyaa”.


While his films with the superstars ranged from dramas to comedies, the 64-year-old director, who has been making movies for nearly four decades across genres and languages, said the viewers today reject films they don’t find authentic.
