Actor Rajeev Khandelwal believes that audiences have always wanted to see different kind of films but a certain perception has hampered subject-driven movies from reaching movie buffs.
"Generally, people say that content-driven films that have strong scripts do not work and neglect them as off-beat films," the 37-year-old said here in a group interview.
"But people say that public does not want to see such films and so release them on a small scale. But I have always felt that audience always want to see such films but we never tried to give it to them," he added.
"'Kahaani' was also such a movie and was released on a bigger scale. 'Table No. 21' is the second example after 'Kahaani' where the filmmakers released the film and it ran on word-of-mouth publicity and also did good business," he added.
Rajeev believes that "Table No. 21" success will motivate filmmakers to have a bigger release of such films.
"I feel it's a great example to all those producers who don't have enough confidence to release such kind of films on a bigger scale. So, I am very happy and the film will motivate such filmmakers and producers," he said.
