Popular Bollywood filmmaker Rohit Shetty, known for making entertaining movies, says he takes criticism sportingly because he is practical about film business and understands others' opinion about his work.
Asked if he is wise or thick skinned in dealing with criticism of his films, Shetty said, "I am not thick skinned... I am quite practical in film business. If I talk from the business point, my film is a product and as a businessman, I know my product will cater to a certain group of customers and not impress the whole world.
"So, it is wise to serve to my potential audience. But that does not mean I would abuse critics and get defensive. I understand their point as well." Shetty is known for his commercial potboilers ‘Golmaal’, ‘Golmaal Returns’, ‘Singham’, ‘Singham Returns’, ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Dilwale’. He has directed stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn, Kajol, Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
