You are active on Twitter. Are you enjoying this platform?
Yes, I would like to thank to corporate world. Mujhe pehle yeh log fake lagte the, theek vaise he jaise main inhe over acting wala lagta tha, stupid lagta tha (Laughs). Twitter, Facebook, Insta has changed youth. They can watch best of the things on internet. This is a good thing that has happened. Yeh ek cheez hui ki ab theatre value kam ho gayi hai because vo apne mobile par bahut cheezein dekh le rahe hain.
What’s your thought on comedy these days?
Now comedy has shifted on TV. Now Kapil Sharma and Krishna are doing dhamaal because they have good writers. Agar mujhe comedy likhi nahin milti thi to we use to do in such a way that people use to laugh till the climax. Because when I came in the industry I was a writer. They don’t get good songs also. Ranveer Singh gets good songs sometimes and I like them. They all are super hit. I like his choices of films. Unmein ek class hai. At the same time vo khud mass ka aadmi hai, to uski comedy zyada achchi lagti hai. Others are just struggling and they are to their best at struggling. All are good but they are struggling.
Will your son Yashvardhan follow your footsteps?
He will be better than me because he understands the industry well. He has studied in London. He understands technicalities, planning. I want to give break to many newcomers. I’m launching five newcomers.
What went wrong with Tina debut?
I don’t want to discuss her career because these days I’m busy with my own career.
Which of your three films should be remade today?
I will never suggest because I don’t give suggestions for free. I charge for that (Laughs). And the most important thing is that this is so costly business that what if you suggest something and that goes wrong. So that person will never forgive you. Why should I give suggestions?
