Whether Vashu Bhagnani believes it or not, but him producing all the films for his son is creating a negative conjecture amongst the audience about his films. While Youngistaan may be the first decent film they have produced together, but people may not still come out to theaters because of Jacky’s unfavorable image with the popular audiences. To set the record straight, he is still not an ‘actor’, even after this one. Continue reading “Youngistaan Movie Review : Definitely a better film than you expect it to be”
