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?
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.
