[wps_faq style=”classic” question=”What Makes Rohit Shetty One Of The Most Useless Directors?”]Such Scenes From His Movies Make Him A Useless Director. But Hey! It Doesn’t Matter To Him Because He’s Making A Enormous Amount Of Money Out Of These Movies And The Reason Being People. Yes, People. Majority Of People Cannot Stand Serious Movies Or Movies With A Practical Storyline Because That Turns Out To Be A Bore For Them. People Need Songs, A Bit Of Overacting, And “Gravity Defying Action Scenes”. Some Movies Made Under His Direction- Chennai Express- Earned Crores. Zero Storyline. So, Lack Of Storyline In His Movies Make Him A Useless Director But All Of This Criticism Makes No Sense As He Will Keep Making Such Movies And People Will Go, Watch, Laugh Their Asses Off And Waste Money On His Movies. Just In Case You Were Missing Him In The Answer Or You Have A Crush On Him.[/wps_faq]
[wps_faq style=”classic” question=”Where Has Rohit Shetty Gotten His Hair Transplant?”]I’m Imagining It Would Be In Turkey Because He’s Got A Pretty Outstanding Result And Turkey Has Grown In The Last Couple Of Years As A Booming Industry For Hair Transplantation With Over 350+ Clinics In Istanbul Alone.[/wps_faq]
[wps_faq style=”classic” question=”Why Is Shame On You Rohit Shetty Trending On Twitter?”]It Is Trending For All Right Reasons. He Thinks That The Contribution Of Actresses To His Movie Is Null Or Nothing. Ideally, The Director Should Have Acknowledged Her For Her Sincerity. On The Contrary, Rohit Insulted Her By Saying With 3 Actors In The Foreground No One Is Going To Notice Her. Katrina Did Not Like Rohit’s Statement And Even Said How Can He Say Like That. After People Were Highly Frustrated With Rohit, Katrina Has Finally Come Out In His Support. May Be She Thought This Would Negatively Affect The Film. Anyways, Keeping All The Negativity Aside, Happy Women’s Day To All Astonishing Women Who Are Doing Exceptionally Well In All Fields.[/wps_faq]
[wps_faq style=”classic” question=”Why Doesn’t Rohit Shetty Stop Blowing Up So Many Cars In His Movies?”]This Guy Would Never, I Repeat Would Never Stop Blowing Up Cars. These Are Some Reasons. He Is One Of The Highest-paid Directors In Bollywood. The Reason Is His Back To Back 7 Hits In A Row Which Only Were Action/Comedy Masala Flicks With Mindless Explosions. The Only Crash Was His Suspense/ Thriller With Some Mixture Of Comedy Sunday, Dilwale A Romantic Flick, And Zameen A Serious Action Film. These Failures Had Little Rohit Shetty Style And Were More Logical. People In India Prefer Commercial Light Action/ Comedy Or From/ Comedy Or Family Drama More Than Films Like Swadesh, Bhagat Singh, Masaman, Etc. After Coming From Work They Want To Relax By Watching Comedy Tension-free Films Which Is What Rohit Shetty Usually Makes. He Is The Son Of M.B. Shetty Who Was A Famous Stuntman And Action Choreographer Around The 1970S. This Is One Of The Main Judgments. He Has Seen Action And Stunts Throughout His Childhood And Now It’s His Way Of Directing. Blowing Up Cars And Action Is In His Genes We Cannot Stop It.[/wps_faq]
[wps_faq style=”classic” question=”Why Is Rohit Shetty Considered A Great Director?”]Rohit Shetty Is A Commercially Entertaining Director. His Films Are High On Energy. They’re Not Artsy And Affected. They’re Unabashedly Hero Worshipping. The Heroines Are Charming. The Humor Is Family Friendly. I Have Loved Golmaal 1, 2 & 3, All The Best (Very Underrated Comedy), Bol Bachchan Too (Yes The Humor Is At Times Offensive But Still Made Me Laugh). Chennai Express Was So Bad It Was Good.[/wps_faq]
