Superstars don't look at box office collections: Kabir Khan

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Director Kabir Khan said superstars like Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan don't bother about how much money each other's films have made at the box office. Kabir's last directorial venture 'Tubelight' reportedly did a business of Rs 119 crore and the director said people in Bollywood are not bothered about numbers and it is all created by the media.

"I don't think Salman is looking at what numbers Shah Rukh Khan's film did and vice versa. They all are superstars in their own space. Some films may work sometimes and sometimes some films don't. But they are all huge stars. I think it's the race created by media, it's fun to read. I don't think in reality it exits," he said.

The 'Ek Tha Tiger' helmer appreciates the work of other directors and said competition doesn't exist between them. "We enjoy each others films. When I see the work of other directors, I feel inspired. I don't think there is any unhealthy rivalry between the directors. There is a general camaraderie. I wish I could make 'Dangal', it's a lovely story. We had the story in front of us, we did not pick it up. It's a story that I would have loved to narrate. I love Raju ji (Rajkumar Hirani), he is my favourite filmmaker. I love watching his films," he added.

Kabir is known for making films with political backdrops. Ask him if he would attempt a mass entertainer, Kabir said, "We need to redefine entertainment. Audience today is reacting to films that are entertaining like 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', 'PK' and 'Dangal'. Five years ago, these films wouldn't be defined as entertainers. But such movies are appreciated and are commercially successful as audiences are enjoying them."

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You could be running behind schedule in a certain assignment. In your anxiety to get things done in a hurry you could end up over looking some important details. Your plans to make up for lost time at home could also run into some rough weather because of the attitude of a family member. Try not to be overly sensitive with loved ones but look on the positive side of all that you have. Perhaps you are taking a lot for granted.
