Actor-writer and now successful director, and that too for one of the top production house of the country. What else can one ask for! It is obvious that we are talking about the still handsome Parmeet Sethi and his hit film for Yash Raj Films, BADMAASH COMPANY.
With the Shahid Kapoor and Anushka Sharma starrer (dismissed by many even before it released!), all set to streak past the 30 crore barrier in India, not even the biggest optimists from the BADMAASH COMPANY camp would have imagined that the film would manage to achieve so much, despite being sandwiched between HOUSEFULL and KITES. But it has!
In fact, even director Parmeet Sethi accepts that he did not expect it to be so successful. "It is true that I did not think that BADMAASH COMPANY would go so far!" Parmeet adds, "But to tell you the truth I was not thinking about the box-office while I was making BADMAASH COMPANY. I was just doing my job. If one thinks too much about the box-office prospects, then one cannot make a good film!"
Even if one believes that box-office is a very important parameter for determining the performance of a commercial film, what Parmeet says is also quite true!
