Mumbai: Writer-director Anees Bazmee says directing multi-starrers is his forte since he believes cinema is larger than life.

"I like directing multi-starrers and believe that cinema should be larger than life. There is a difference between on-screen and off-screen situations. There is clarity in my approach while dealing with a host of stars in a film.

Everyone`s basic interest is that the film should do well,"
Anees told reporters.

The director of movies like `No Entry`, `Singh is King`, `Welcome` said business of cinema is most important for him.

"I don`t believe in having a target audience. It is very important to satisfy everybody and I feel this is a challenge. I believe cinema should be larger than life. There is a difference between on-screen and off-screen situations," he added.

Anees said his upcoming film `No Problem` with Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Akshaye Khanna was in the popular mainstream genre.

Speaking about his producer Anil Kapoor, Anees said Anil is a friend and his suggestions are always welcome.

"But, he gives a free hand to his directors. Anil is basically an actor and steps in as producer only if there is big problem," he added.

Anees said Kangana Ranaut and Akshaye Khanna were the
surprise packets of `No Problem`.
