Why blame me for all my flops?

While films flop ev­ery now and then in Bol­ly­wood, ac­tor Im­ran Khan says that he has al­ways had to sin­gle-hand­edly shoul­der the bur­den of his films not do­ing well.

“When a film fails, like Once Upon A Time In Mum­bai Dobaara!, which is a mas­sive fran­chise film with a block­buster di­rec­tor, big stars and a big pro­ducer, the en­tire fail­ure for my film is hung around my neck like a jooton ki mala. So this en­tire fran­chise film mein sab meri wa­jah se flop hua hai,” points out Im­ran.

And that’s the rea­son the ac­tor can’t sit back and revel in the ap­pre­ci­a­tion that his per­for­mance in his latest re­lease Katti Batti has re­ceived. “I think there is a long way to go in that sense. Get­ting credit for one film is de­light­ful, but I do miss what came be­fore,” he says.

On the other hand, the 32-year-old says when any of his films have proven a hit at the box-of­fice, he has never got credit for it.

“I feel that in my ca­reer, when my films have done well, I have not got­ten the credit for it. Dekha jaye toh maine ache khase hits diye hai and first time di­rec­tors ke saath.”

The 32-year-old ac­tor adds that he is very clear about what he needs in or­der to give his best to a film. “I have done enough to know the con­di­tions which are needed to do good work. That’s a happy and com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment. In a film where I am not happy, you can see it on my face. Saaf dhikhai dega that Im­ran is not com­fort­able,” he says.
