Mumbai, Oct 31 (IANS) Rajkumar Hirani, who is known for directing blockbusters such as “3 Idiots” and “PK”, says one should never aim to make a blockbuster.
“Never make films to please others. You’re the best judge of what will work and if you think what you’ve written will click, then do it,” Hirani said here at the Movie Mela at the ongoing 17th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival.
Speaking along with his writing partner Abhijat Joshi on ‘How to make a blockbuster’, Hirani shared the secret behind the blockbuster formula.
“It’s simple. If you’re a filmmaker, remember that you can never attempt to make a blockbuster,” he quipped.
He also said that he always likes to tell stories that are close to his heart and unique.
“Abhijat and I always like to work on a unique idea for our films. Even if these ideas have been attempted before, you just have to choose a different path to tell them,” Hirani said.
