While some filmmakers claim that commercial success is not as important as critical acclaim for them, Ashutosh Gowariker confesses that is not the case for him. Gowariker feels that commercial success is a sign of appreciation.
When asked how important commercial success is for him, the director said to DNA India, Very important! I feel that the main intention of making any movie should be to reach a maximum audience_ At least, your co-producer or the person who is putting in the money gets his money back. On a creative level, for the entire team, the commercial success is very very important because you know you have slogged, you have worked on a movie for more than a year.
Gowariker is currently working on his ambitious project, Mohenjo Daro۪, starring Hrithik Roshan, Pooja Hegde and Kabir Bedi. Shooting for the period drama is expected to go on floors later this month and it is slated to release in the early days of 2016.
