How does it feel to have cre­ated his­tory now your movie Chen­nai Ex­press has been ad­judged the most com­mer­cially suc­cess­ful In­dian movie, es­pe­cially since you haven’t en­joyed much suc­cess at the box of­fice re­cently?

Friday - - Society -

I’ve never mea­sured suc­cess by money. But yes, it’s a huge mon­key off my back. For peo­ple who do mea­sure suc­cess by money, Chen­nai Ex­press is my an­swer. Now I can move on and do my cre­ative stuff. I am not go­ing to al­low that to over­shadow my next work. I know I have to move on, con­tinue do­ing my thing.

It’s al­ready done a cou­ple of bil­lion dol­lars world­wide and it’s nice to know peo­ple are ap­pre­ci­at­ing movies from the sub­con­ti­nent and such movies are do­ing well. I’m hop­ing I will be around to watch movies from the sub­con­ti­nent do­ing as well as, say, Chi­nese or French movies that are watched around the world.
