Can’t take success for granted: Rohit Shetty

Mumbai: Filmmaker Rohit Shetty, who has delivered blockbusters galore in Bollywood and who is currently awaiting the release of “Singham Returns”, doesn’t believe in taking success for granted and so continues to put in his “100 percent” to his films.

The director of films like “Golmaal” series, “Singham”, “Bol Bachchan” and “Chennai Express” has a pulse of the audience’s taste.

Does that put an additional pressure on him to surpass the success of his previous films?

“No, it is not about the pressure,” Shetty said here.

“It is the approach that matters the most. You cannot take your success for granted. After ‘Chennai Express’, when we were writing ‘Singham Returns’, we knew the pressure. Today, that is why I am not nervous.

“See, I don’t know the fate of the film and I can’t boast of the business. But whether the film is a hit or a flop on Friday, my honesty will be there. When I sit with my team in my office, I would feel that ‘Yes, we gave our 100 percent to the film’. The rest is up to the audience,” he said.

Starring Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor, “Singham Returns” is releasing Aug 15 on Independence Day.
