Post the success of SINGH IS KINNG, ace director Anees Bazmee was rumored to have been offered as much 51 crores for a three film deal by a top corporate house. Though the director of blockbuster hits like NO ENTRY, WELCOME and SINGH IS KINNG hadn't confirmed on the exact figure, he had admitted that he was indeed being approached with big money.

He had stated, ''Yes, there have been huge offers after SINGH IS KIING as well and I am certainly considering a few of them. In any case, temptations like these aren't new to me because ever since NO ENTRY became a superhit, mega bucks have been offered to me. Still, I don't want to rush up on my films and go for quantity while compromising on the quality.''

However, less than a year after the release of SINGH IS KINNG, the industry scenario has changed. So how much of the 'temptation' still exists?

''Of course huge numbers like the ones being quoted earlier would be very unreasonable. In fact during that time when the industry was at its peak, some people were willing to offer even more. But today, situation is different and I fully understand it. Now is the time to face reality'', says Anees Bazmee while being honest enough to state that correction was bound to happen.

''More than recession affecting the industry, I would say that it is time for some severe correction. Koyi Apna Ghar Jala Ke To Aapko Paise Dega Nahi (No one is going to put his own life on stake just in order to afford you. Everyone in the chain should be making money and for that things had to be brought back under control'', says the film maker.

Talking about his current assignment, IT'S MY LIFE, which stars Harman Baweja, Genelia D'Souza and Nana Patekar, saw its last leg coming to a conclusion in New Delhi last month. The film was earlier being planned for an August release but looking at the stand off between producers and multiplexes, it would most likely see a delayed release now.
