Aamir Khan: 'I don't obsess over box office numbers'

Aamir Khan has claimed that box office figures do not correlate to film quality.

The actor's latest thriller Talaash releases on November 30.

He told The Times of India: "A large number of people might see the film because a star is there. Numbers can be deceptive.

"To me success means when we as a creative team sit together to watch a film before it releases. Do we feel that we have succeeded in making what we set out to do?

"If the team feels we have come close, it's the first sign of success. I have never looked at figures. I am the last person to look at figures at the outset."



He added: "I look at them in retrospect as it helps me gauge how well a film of mine has been received. It is one of the yardsticks. I use them to understand how my film has fared, how people have reacted to it.

"Filmmaking is a team effort. It's tough. The director and writer play important parts but along with that there is the cameraman, the sound engineer, the song composer, lyric writer, actors - so when a film does well, it is the result of this team doing good work. The balance is not in the hands of actors alone."

The producers of Talaash have reportedly asked for a guaranteed two-week run in single-screen cinemas.

Khan recently denied that he was aware that Talaash had been offered to Shah Rukh Khan first.
