Now, the filmmaker opened up on claims of Bollywood being ‘finished', he revealed, “It’s all nonsense and rubbish. Good films will always work. Gangubai Kathiawadi and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 have done huge numbers. We have done numbers on JugJugg Jeeyo as well. Films which aren’t good can never work and they’ve never worked." 

In addition, he added that numerous big movies like Laal Singh Chaddha, Raksha Bandhan, Brahmastra, and Rohit Shetty's film lined up and by the end of the year there is a Salman Khan film too. "There's so much to look forward to. We have all the love, we just need to create the right content to create it," KJo told.

Furthermore, he revealed, “To get the audience inside a cinema hall is not easy anymore. You've to make sure your film, trailer, and campaign is exciting to manage to get those numbers. You're living upto your own reputation. Is it a stress? Could be. But it's more of a challenge and I like taking challenges.”
