The Shahrukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer Happy New Year opened to a massive response from audience worldwide on 24th October. Even as the film continues to run houseful shows, several critics have panned the movie.
But Khan is unperturbed by the critics' mixed response to the film. According to him, his aim is to entertain the masses.
"I respect their views. But I don't make films for such a niche audience of five to seven people. I try to make films for larger spectrum of people," Khan told IANS, reports CNN IBN.
SRK also addressed reports stating that he is 'superstitious' about releasing his films around the Diwali festive period as a majority of his earlier blockbusters including Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Om Shanti Om were released around that time.
"You get that extra benefit of a day off...I am lucky. The movies (that released during Diwali) have done well, but I am not superstitious like that. Any day is good if I get a good holiday,"
Several rumours circulating the web also state that Khan's next film with his Chennai Express director Rohit Shetty might be a remake of Hollywood hit Mr & Mrs Smith.
When asked if he would like to feature in any Hollywood adaptation, he said: "I'd rather do a film that is more original. But if somebody comes up to me with a story and says it's an adaptation of 'Romeo and Juliet' and if I like the film, I would do it."
