Box of­fice col­lec­tions aren’t ‘ev­ery­thing’ for Kabir Khan

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

His re­cent re­lease, Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan, has be­come a block­buster, but di­rec­tor

Kabir Khan (left) says that films are not made for the pur­pose of earn­ing huge col­lec­tions, as that re­stricts the film­maker’s cre­ativ­ity.

Asked if he ex­pects a sim­i­lar col­lec­tion for his up­com­ing Saif Ali Khan-Ka­t­rina Kaif di­rec­to­rial, Kabir said: “Although ev­ery­one wishes to earn good col­lec­tions at the box-of­fice, we don’t make films with the sole in­ten­tion of num­bers.”

“A film should be suc­cess­ful ac­cord­ing to its bud­get. For ev­ery film to touch a cer­tain num­ber, we will (have to) make the same kind of films, which I didn’t want. I want to make dif­fer­ent films. But like Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan, I’d love for my next to also be a suc­cess,” he added.

Mean­while, Saif has ex­pressed shock at news that his film with Kabir has been banned in Pak­istan. The film isn’t against any coun­try, says Saif.
