Rohit Shetty’s 2008 directorial ‘Golmaal Returns’ was a commercial hit, but the filmmaker says that he knew it was a ‘crap film’.

The comedy drama, starring Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Tusshar Kapoor and Arshad Warsi in lead roles, is a part of the highly successful comedy franchise Golmaal.

While speaking at a panel discussion at the Jio MAMI 18th Mumbai Film Festival with Star in Mumbai, Shetty said that he can sense it when his film goes wrong.

“I start getting that feeling when you are going wrong. My films are hardcore commercial films catering to a particular audience. So, you start getting that feeling that it won’t work at that level. I have been right about it twice or thrice,” he said.

When asked about how he goes back the to making films after his they fail to create fireworks at the box office, Shetty said, “We rectify ourselves…what all went wrong. Even if it is a hit, the whole team sits together and we introspect. ‘Golmaal Returns was the biggest hit of those days…in 2008. But we knew, it’s a crap film.”

In the past, Shetty has also given hits like Chennai Express, starring Shah Rukh Khan.

He also shared why some of his films, including the 2015 release Dilwale, which brought back SRK and Kajol together on the silver screen after a gap of five years, didn’t hit the jackpot.

“In Singham Returns, the character went wrong. Dilwale… the whole Kajol-Shah Rukh story went wrong. You come to know where you are going wrong. And then you rectify and move forward,” said Shetty.
