Anil Kapoor truly believes that people are frustrated due to India loosing badly in the recent ICC 20:20 matches. This has only created further hunger in them to go visit the theaters again and that would certainly help his production SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON as well.
''The film was supposed to come earlier this year but due to strike, we moved it ahead. However, it was not frustrating at all to get into this little waiting period because by now audiences are in any case starved of good entertainment. I guess the timing is just perfect for the film to arrive'', says Anil Kapoor from USA where he is currently stationed for the TV series that he is acting in.
With the current ODI series with West Indies not really creating much hype and the 20:20 loss still being alive in a die hard cricket fan, it appears to be back to movie watching with a vengeance for audience, as reflected in the recent hit NEW YORK.
''That's true'', agrees Anil Kapoor, ''People are fed up of cricket and movies are being topmost priority again. In any case, it also boils down to how good your product is and in this regard, I am supremely confident of SHORTKUT - THE CON IS.''
Since the film is set in Bollywood, does it take the spoof route?
''No, not at all. The film is not spoofy at all and is in fact quite real. It has an inherent humor to it with a love story which is very real between Akshaye Khanna and Amrita Rao. There are quite a few elements in the film which are very real. Be rest assured, there is a lot of entertainment in store for you when you watch the film'', concludes Anil Kapoor.
