Sanjay Leela Bhansali has said that he wants to make Rowdy Rathore a big commercial hit.

The director is best known for directing serious dramas such as Guzaarish.

He told The Times of India: "With Guzaarish I went through a catharsis. Though it was a film about something as morbid as euthanasia, it was eventually a celebration of life and happiness.

"Once I was done with it, I wanted to do something that would appeal to the man on the streets and in the chawls. That is where I grew up loving everything about cinema."

He continued: "I want people to mouth the dialogues from this film too, sing the songs. I have grown up watching films in single screens where people would get up and dance in the aisles. With Rowdy Rathore, I want to recreate the same magic."

In November, Bhansali said that he hoped Bollywood will not stop making masala films.

The director was honoured recently at the London Asian Film Festival for highlighting disability in his films.

Rowdy Rathore sees Akshay Kumar taking on a double role as a gangster opposite Sonakshi Sinha.
