(Problem starts) the day you start looking down on consumers, that, ‘we’re doing you a favor by making a great film. Now you are watching a great film.’ Greatness is achieved by a collective effort and I have learned by doing films in Telugu…I just did another film in Telugu, I did a film in the Tamil language, and I’m going to do a Malayalam film.”
