Dinesh Vijan is grinning from ear to ear. His production house (where Saif Ali Khan is the co-partner) Illuminati Films has scored a success in the form of COCKTAIL and is continuing to take in moolah in the second week as well. While 75 crores as the eventual total is pretty much on the cards, COCKTAIL has turned out to be one rare love story that has done such business at the box office.

"I personally like making love stories and even though I am still learning and growing, I think this is something that I know", says Dinesh who had earlier tasted big success with LOVE AAJ KAL, again a romantic film, "In fact my favourite genre with Saif would be a romantic story as well, not to be mistaken with a romantic comedy though. In fact even if I were to make romantic comedy in future, it would be something on the lines of COCKTAIL and won't really have place for slapstick humour."


With COCKTAIL as well as LOVE AAJ KAL resulting in two successive romantic successes for his company, Dinesh seems to have cracked the code.

"See, for starters it is the most stable genre for Hindi films since time immemorial", he says, "Also, I feel that music really accentuates this genre well. However, at the end of the day, it's all about deciding the content in conjunction with each other. Whatever Saif and I may eventually choose, we need to believe in the same and have good conviction towards it. AGENT VINOD was not a romantic film but we had conviction in it right through it's conceptualisation till release."

He goes on to add in a lighter vein, "See, all us filmmakers have a certain timeline so we need to be aware of what we would be doing for another five or seven years. Reason being that after that some other smart chap will come along with his ideas. While we are at it, we would do what makes sense. After that we would hopefully hire that smart kid to work for us."

Good thought here!
