Bhansali talks about 'Rowdy Rathore'
When Bollywood acclaimed filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali announced 'Rowdy Rathore' as his next production, jaws dropped in shock as a complete commercial potboiler is not exactly the kind of film which Sanjay is known for.
The film 'Rowdy Rathore' has gone on to become one of the biggest grossers of all time and Bhansali is a happy man at the end of the day. He revealed that he didn't make the film just to garner money, but it was a kind of film that bought a smile on his face as a child.
"Rowdy Rathore is the kind of film I used to clap and cheer for as a child at Alankar Talkies and Imperial Talkies. Last week, when I visited Chandan Talkies, audience members came to shake my hand and hug me. It's something I've never experienced after my self-directed films. It's new to me. And I'm enjoying myself thoroughly. No one can make me feel guilty or apologetic, because I've had as much fun producing Rowdy Rathore, as I had directing Black," said Sanjay.
However, before signing off he confessed that though 'Rowdy Rathore' was produced under his name, he can never direct such a film. "I'm convinced about my aesthetics. I'm proud of Black and Guzaarish. I can't claim to be as versatile. I will direct the films that I am comfortable with," said Bhansali who will next be directing a song-dance extravaganza starring Kareena Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.
