On the eve of release of ACCIDENT ON HILL ROAD, Celina is quite positive about the prospects of the film and believes that despite minimal promotion, it would manage to find audiences amongst those who like quality cinema.
"May be the promotion is not very good, but then it is alright", says Celina, "The kind of film that 'Accident...' is and the kind of audience that it is targeting, I have no regrets. See, an actor's work finishes after dubbing and when it comes to publicity; you can only make yourself available when asked for and rest is all on makers. So the question around promotion is best directed at them. However, rest assured the film will definitely make money because it has been made on a controlled budget. Everyone associated with the film is feeling very safe about it."
Notwithstanding the fact that the film is also competing with RAAT GAYI BAAT GAYI and BOLO RAAM (with 3 IDIOTS continuing to ignite heat at the box office), she sounds quite positive. "And that's because you never know what may work at one point in time", she states.
She goes on to narrate an example. "Look at A WEDNESDAY; what a brilliant film. It hardly had any publicity but still it saw so much critical and commercial acclaim coming its way. It also got so many awards. Some movies are meant to be box office hits and others critical hits. On the other hand some just come and go way. With 'Accident...', my least expectation is that it would help me gain recognition as an actress because of my performance."
