Superstar Aamir Khan has spoken out about the disastrous response his last release ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ received at the box office last year.
The film, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif, crashed at the box office on the weekend of its Diwali release.
In an interview cited in DNA India, Khan said that he didn’t need to “forgive” the director Vijay Krishna Acharya over the poor response. He said, “Every director that I work with, they are good and their intentions are good. We all aim to make a good film but sometimes it doesn’t happen. Filmmaking is difficult. I’m a team player. If my director has gone wrong, I’ve gone wrong with him.”
“I don’t mind failing with my director on his or her instincts. I don’t have a problem. I believe in the director and if he has gone wrong, I have too. We will learn from our mistakes,” he added.
Talking further about the film’s disappointing response, Khan said, “I’ve met a lot of people who told me they liked the film. But I don’t judge these things. I think the audience has full right to say exactly what they want and they can be harsh in their criticism, that’s their right. If there was a certain amount of harshness, so be it.”
He went on to add, “Also, I didn’t give a flop film since a long time! So people got an opportunity to take out their anger, which is good too. It’s been years since I have had a failure.”
