Rajkumar Hirani is quite satisfied with the final outcome of 3 IDIOTS.
"In your heart you should be satisfied with what you have made and in case of 3 IDIOTS I was pretty much satisfied a few days back itself when I saw the final copy. It didn't make me cringe and that was enough. That's the way I want my future films to be as well where I can proudly look back at the work I have done", says Hirani who now holds the distinction of having an all time blockbuster under his belt.
Coming to his future plans, grapevine is abuzz that 2010 would see him getting back with Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi for MUNNABHAI CHALE AMERIKA; a definite word is still awaited from all concerned. He promises though that one factor which would remain consistent in his films would be 'keeping things simple'.
"That's the basic thought process that I have always applied. Now look at 3 IDIOTS, there were quite a few complex and emotional scenes in this film as well. However, credit it to the writing and execution by the team that they didn't appear to be heavy and passed off seamlessly", he smiles.
One wonders though if each of his films would continue to boast of a strong emotional content, as witnessed in his hat-trick journey so far. Hypothetically speaking, if he is offered to direct a film belonging to an out and out action genre a la DHOOM or a BLUE, would he be game for it?
"Now action is something that I don't really enjoying directing", confesses Hirani, "For that matter even horror. Just in order to showcase my versatility, I don't want to pick up something which is not really my area of interest."
