Actor Ranveer Singh starrer Cirkus didn’t fare well at the box office. The film was released in 2022 and it was one of the failures. Speaking about the Cirkus failure, filmmaker Rohit Shetty said he takes full ownership of all his failures. In a recent interview, he said there’s no point in blaming anyone and understands that he went wrong somewhere.

Rohit Shetty on his failures

Talking about success and failure, Rohit Shetty told India Today “I make sure to surround myself with people who are honest with me. So, when a film doesn’t do well, I know it. Hence, I have always believed that both my successes and failures are mine. There is no point shying away from it. When a Singham or a Golmaal did well, that was also mine, so when a Zameen, a Dilwale or a Cirkus failed, that was also mine. I don’t see a point in blaming anything else. I know what we did. We, obviously, went wrong somewhere. It was made right after Sooryavanshi and in the middle of the (Covid-19) pandemic for the workers. It was a small film meant for the audience of that time.

The same audience made Sooryanshi a blockbuster despite a 50 per cent occupancy, and if it didn’t work for Cirkus. I must take ownership of failures as well. That’s not to say that I won’t bounce back with the Singham franchise again or Golmaal or any other film. I might make Cirkus again, too and that’s okay. My team tells me every 5 years, you are grounded by such failures. I ultimately aim to live up to the expectations of the audience. I do feel a sense of responsibility to give them back the love they give me,” he further added.

Cirkus was headlined by Ranveer Singh and Varun Sharma. The movie also starrer Jacqueline Fernandez, Pooja Hedge, Johnny Lever, Sanjay Mishra and more.
