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.
