Sunday tête-à-tête: Imran Khan – Unfazed by flops
Imran Khan, may have had a cracking start at the box office with the runaway success of his frothy romcom, Janne Tu Ya Jaana Na, but his most recent films have hardly set the box office on fire. At present, the actor has no films due for release imminently, given his wife Avantika is expecting their first child.
Taking failure in his side the earnest actor nonchalantly says that one has to deal with box office flops and that his way of ensuring profit for the makers is to keep his remuneration in check.
"I have never worked for money, and the money that I take all depends on the film," he said when asked if he'd slashed his fee given his films are falling like nine pins.
"I have never been someone who is motivated by money or will not do a film if the price is not right. I always want my price to be low so that the film can recover. If the film does well, then you take profit... that's the basic thing you can do."
Imran had several releases last year, all helmed by top production houses and featuring the most saleable co stars but none of them (Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein) set the cash register ringing.
"As far as films not doing well is concerned, if you can't deal with that, then you should not be working in the film industry, because the reality of the business is that you will have more flops than hits. If you can't accept it, then you must get out," said Imran
"I am sure something must have gone wrong, but what you have to take with you is a lesson. I have worked hard but people have not liked it and it's fine," he finished off.
