I become the viewer while directing: Murugadoss

Statesman News Service |

Filmmaker AR Murugadoss, who enjoys a high success rate among his contemporaries in Indian cinema, says he always thinks from the viewpoint of the audience while helming a project.

"I don’t make films as a director. I become the viewer and make it the way the audience would like to see my films. I don’t possess any secret formula for my success. It’s very simple; I make films that everybody would like to see," Murugadoss, who has hits such as Thuppakki, Ghajini and Kaththi to his credit, said.

Hot on the heels of the success of Sonakshi Sinha-starrer Akira, he says he follows the same approach in Bollywood too.

"I don’t have a different approach when I’m working in Bollywood. It’s only when you’re working on a rural subject that you need to worry about your audience. Otherwise, all city-based scripts will work across industries because the sensibilities are more or less same across cities," he said.

Murugadoss is currently working on a yet-untitled Tamil-Telugu bilingual project with superstar Mahesh Babu.
