“There is so much stress all around us. We all need a break from all that and hence we go to movies. I want to provide sheer happiness to the audience. They should just come and have fun and leave the theatres with a smile on their face,” Shetty said.
Shetty, who has directed the “Golmaal” series, “Singham”, “Bol Bachchan” and the latest “Chennai Express”, is not just happy to see his films do well at the box-office but is glad that there is also a huge market for off-beat films like “The Luncbox”. “We are in a very happy state right now. As a filmmaker, actor or producer, one can’t ask for a better phase in Indian cinema. There is a platform for every kind of films. People are open to watch a ‘Chennai Express’ and also a ‘Kai Po Che’ or ‘The Lunchbox’,” he said.
