Mumbai, April 10 (IANS) Bollywood producer and T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar, whose films “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” and “Raid” have drawn audiences this year, says a good story will always get footfalls.
Last year, the banner had successful films like “Hindi Medium” and “Tumhaari Sulu”. This year, “Hindi Medium” released in China to a huge response, and both “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” and “Raid” have collections that have surpassed the Rs 100 crore mark, read a statement.
“Whether it is the success of ‘Hindi Medium’ in China or ‘Raid’ doing such phenomenal business here, it only reinforces our belief that a good story is what connects with the audience. For us, the key decisions have been to pick stories that have a universal appeal. These are the fruits of those decisions and we are overwhelmed,” Kumar said.
