Founder of BollyCon Kenneth Hopkins says “Communities need an offline 3rd place option to express and celebrate global Bollywood Culture which is very different from a global “Pop-Culture”. This kind of Meet-up and special screening caters to exactly that need. It also provides the stars a chance to express their love for their fan base and to give back to their fan club communities, in an organized and comfortable manner.”
A Varun Dhawan’s fan, Anuj Ali will be attending this event all the way from Narayanganj, Bangladesh. In the past, Anuj kept a fast for the success of Badlapur & Varun Dhawan has even mentioned this in an interview. This will be the very first time Anuj will get to meet his Idol thanks to this initiative by BollyCon.
In a time when multiplexes find it harder and harder to have high occupancy, such initiatives & formats that understand & focus on Bollywood Culture could possibly help recreate the much-needed box-office magic in domestic markets.
Shoojit Sircar’s October will show Dhawan in a very different light from his previous avatar’s. Critics have been hailing the movie as a cinematic gem. As observed with Dangal and Secret Superstar, these kinds of stories are also a big hit in international markets, especially in China.
