Shah Rukh Khan: Films are an industry and not just an art form. So, you need to earn to survive

Shah Rukh KhanKaran Johar and Juno Chopra have collaborated as producers to make the rebooted version of the 1969 film ‘Ittefaq’. Talking about how his vision and appetite has changed with respect to the kind of films that he would like to make with Karan, SRK says , “ Creatively, Karan has always been on the ball. I think he understands what the audience would like to see, apart from being a creative person. I have no other sensibility apart from being creative and I just want to do it because it should be done. So, I could make a wrong choice. Hence, someone like Karan is a great asset, as he knows the changing face of cinema. He understands and absorbs things that are happening around and he brings it to Indian cinema. Even 8-10 years back, I would tell my friends that collaboration is the way forward. We just talked about it, but Karan went ahead and did it. Like we were talking about earlier, Karan understands the issues of an interval and the phenomena of the second half being a letdown. Having said that, films are an industry and not just an art form. So, you need to earn to survive. Just making films for the sake of money is wrong and just making films for the sake of creativity is also wrong.
