Masala films are tougher, says director Ashutosh Gowariker

Mumbai: Acclaimed filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker, best known for making period dramas like ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Jodhaa Akbar’, says it is challenging to make a typical Bollywood potboiler that excites the audience.

"I would love to make a glamourous movie sometime. But those movies seem easy to make, yet it is very difficult to make them. I don`t know if I would ever make a completely mainstream film...but I don`t mind making a murder mystery or a horror film," said Gowariker.

He did try his hand at commercial cinema with ‘What`s Your Rashee?’, but it failed miserably at the Box Office. He returned to his trademark style with ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’, and is now ready to work on "Buddha".
