Ekta Kapoor plans to lay low with LSD 2 release, here’s WHY | Hindi Movie News – Times of India

Ekta Kapoor expressed her feelings about the movie Thank You For Coming, saying it left her with a “strange pain” in her heart. She mentioned that while the film was warmly received overseas, it faced a lot of hatred back home.
Ekta Kapoor has been taking some bold decisions as a producer. Following the release of Karan Boolani’s comedy ‘Thank You For Coming’ last year, Ekta is now getting ready for the anthology ‘LS2 2: Love, Sex Aur Dhokha 2’ to come out.
In an interview with Variety, Ekta talks about why she might need to lay low after the release of the movie directed by Dibakar Banerjee.“It (Thank You For Coming) has left a very strange pain in my heart because the way that film was and the kind of reception it got in India, vis-a-vis the reception it got overseas, I don’t know what happened,” said Ekta. The movie ‘Thank You For Coming,’ with Bhumi Pednekar in the main role, was produced by both Ekta and Rhea Kapoor. It got praised when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. But unfortunately, it failed at the box office afterward.
Ekta mentioned that the criticism she received for ‘Thank You For Coming’ made her wonder how much controversy the even bolder ‘LSD 2’ would stir up when it’s released. She further added, “And the hate spamming we went through – our walls used to be spammed every day with hatred, because we attempted to discover and make a movie on female sexuality. I can only imagine what’s gonna happen when LSD 2 comes. I think I’ll have to hide again.”

More about LSD 2
LSD 2 is the follow-up to the influential found-footage collection ‘Love, Sex Aur Dhokha.’ It was directed by Dibakar and produced by Ekta’s Balaji Motion Pictures. This movie also introduced actor Rajkummar Rao to the audience.
He added, “It wasn’t my idea, it was Ekta’s idea. She suggested that enough time had passed and society had changed so much that we could make LSD 2,” said Dibakar to ANI. “In the time of LSD 2, our virtual life has now completely dominated our real life. So this virtual life that we live in, I wanted to see how it was happening.”
LSD 2 is all set to hit the big screens on April 19!
