Rohit Shetty has seen it all — the ups, the downs and the stagnancy and he has taken it all in his stride.  

“My journey may have been difficult, but I believe in hard work. Films are what we sell to the audience, and they love the entertainment. At times, when they are not happy with the product, they have the right to complain,” he says.

Talking about returning to Khatron Ke Khiladi after two years, he explains, “We just returned from Spain, and since then I have been working on Golmaal Again.”

He adds, “The girls have outshone the boys and have proved to be worthy competitors. Sometimes I would perform stunts to motivate the contestants, and at other times I only gave them tips to better their performance.”

Talking about upcoming Bollywood project, he says, “I will be directing Ranveer Singh for a commercial, followed by a mass action film. Ranveer is a super star and gives his all to a project.”

Although his previous project Dilwale made Rs 300 crore at the box office, it wasn’t a hit so to say. Did the film affect his equation with Shah Rukh Khan? “Dilwale can’t be called a failure business wise, since it fetched Rs 300 crore. All it takes is one publication to write something negative, and everyone else picks up on it,” he says.

Talking about working with newcomers, Rohit says, “Now that we have our home production, I can take the risk of giving opportunities to new talent. Filmmaking is my passion, but not at the cost of someone else’s finances.”
