Mumbai, Sep 7: Director Kabir Khan is happy with his film "Ek Tha Tiger" crossing the Rs.200 crore mark but he says there is more to films than just numbers.
"See, numbers will keep increasing every year because audience is increasing, screens are increasing. So the business of films is also increasing. Today 'Ek Tha Tiger' has crossed Rs.200 crore, tomorrow other films can come which may cross Rs.250 crore or Rs.300 and this is the way how it should be," the 41-year-old said here Thursday at the Chivas spotlight and music unplugged show.
"So numbers are important but films shoule not be viewed only on the basis of numbers. There are other things like how much did the audience like it, did they recognise that we have done brilliantly in one particular department, sound, cinematography or action, push some boundaries and get true appreciation," he added.
Starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, "Ek Tha Tiger" released this Eid and features Salman in the role of a spy.
Arunoday ready to work with Sudhir anytime
This is called real chemistry. Actor Arunoday Singh came to limelight with Sudhir Mishra's "Yeh Saali Zindagi" and now he is ready to work with the director without even reading the script.
"Yes, Sudhir and I are definitely going to work again. He is just finishing a film, a very good film that he has done 'Inkaar' which should be out early next year. So when that is done and out of the way, then we'll do something," the 28-year-old said here Thursday at the Chivas spotlight and music unplugged show.
"Sudhir Mishra can call me anytime and ask me to do any part in any movie. He doesn't have to give me a script, narration, nothing. The day he calls me is the day I show up on set," he added.
Arunoday was lately seen in "Jism 2" opposite Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone and the film did average business at the box office.
Esha loves comedy
Actress Esha Gupta may have only featured in dark films like "Jannat 2" and "Raaz 3" till now, but she confesses to be a huge fan of comedy films.
"I like comedies. My favourite film till date is 'Andaz Apna Apna' and I remember each dialogue of the film," the 27-year-old said here Thursday on the sets of comedy show "Laugh India Laugh".
A Delhi-based model, Esha also became Femina Miss India International in 2007 and appeared in Kingfisher Swimsuit Calendar in 2010. She will next be seen in Prakash Jha's "Chakravyuh".
