"A film should be successful according to its budget. And if you feel that every film should touch a certain number, then we'll make the same kind of films, which I didn't want. As a director, I want to make different kinds of films. All films should be successful, 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' was successful and I want that 'Phantom' is also a similar success", he added.
