HOUSEFULL has clicked at the box office and Arjun Rampal has seen out and out positive comments coming his way. However, he is still keeping his calm and isn't quite going over board while being ecstatic with the film's success.
"Whatever man, the fact is that both success as well as failure are very over rated", Arjun gets into a philosophical mood here, "In future too I would be making movies which may or may not be up to the mark. But then the matter of the fact is that movies just happen. At the end of the day, there are so many people attached to the final product."
"Today if HOUSEFULL is being talked about, the credit must go to Sajid, Akshay, Riteish, Deepika, the cinematographer, art director etc.; these are the people who created space for me to perform. What is important is to get the right team together. As I said, you need to have patience and remember that it is not a T20 you are a part of. After all Bollywood is a big test match here", smiles Arjun.
Going down the memory lane, he adds, "I think God has been kind while I have been patient over the years. Also, I have had lots of support from my family. A lot of this also goes back to my upbringing as I was always told to do my work with honesty and never gave up. I stuck with that advice. Everything takes time and nothing happens overnight. This is why when acknowledgment like this comes my way after almost a decade of being around, I cherish it even more."
Arjun would next be seen in RAAJNEETI which releases all over on 4th June 2010.
