Honestly, SUNDAY was an eye opener - Rohit Shetty

Rohit Shetty's SUNDAY had done decent business at the box office but the young film maker insists that it could have done better. However, he is not blaming it on the audience or any other third party (something which most Bollywood folks are used to do). Instead he agrees that he himself could have done a better job in understanding what the audience wanted from the film.
''Honestly, SUNDAY was an eye opener for me. While shooting for it, we were thinking of a hardcore masala film but in the end it turned out to be a serious thriller'', confesses Rohit Shetty in a matter of fact tone, ''Some people were disappointed with what they saw. Well, at that time even I was not taking myself seriously and didn't realize that there was a good section of audience out there which had started building expectations from me.''
Any lessons learnt between SUNDAY and GOLMAAL RETURNS?
''I know for sure that when it comes to me, audiences want to see a 'masala film'. Hence it is my duty to give them one. After all, these are not the days when one pays 20 bucks for a film. Ticket rates are quite high and if your salary is say 25000, you end up paying 10% of it for a family movie outing. I realize that you can't be defensive of your films. Instead you have to work harder on your next project. This is what I have done with GOLMAAL RETURNS'', concludes Rohit.
