Director Abhishek Kapoor, who is basking in the success of Kai Po Che, says he is not aiming to make Rs 100 crore at the box office.
Featuring Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Raj Kumar Yadav in lead roles, the movie, which hit the screens last Friday, witnessed a good response on its opening weekend and has reportedly earned Rs 18 crores till now.
Evidently, Abhishek Kapoor is happy but does not consider that the new definition of success is the entry into the elite club.
"I think it (Rs 100 crores) is silly. Beyond that I would not like to say anything. For my films I never aimed for them to do X amount of business. All I want is the audience to like and enjoy the film," he said.
"As far as Kai Po Che is concerned I don't aim for any number or figures. I am happy I have touched the hearts of audience. Their reaction to the film holds more value to me than anything else," he said.
"People have liked the film and I am really happy about it. We all have worked hard for it and our efforts have paid off well. Even the actors are getting good response for their performance in the film. We are elated. We hope to work again with the same cast," the director said.
Abhishek adapted Chetan Bhagat's book 3 Mistakes of My Life for the big screen and titled it as Kai Po Che.
"When I read it (book) for the first time I found it very attractive as the film is about India in a simple way. I wanted to make a film based on India and want everyone to see this film. When I got into it I realised it is not going to be an easy task," he said.
