Ek Villain director Mohit Suri, who is gearing up for the release gives the credit for his success to the super hit music of his films.
Kalyug (2005), Who Lamhe (2006), Murder 2 (2011) and Aashiqui 2 (2013) music of these past films has been responsible for instilling faith in film producers about his work.
"I could not have reached this point in my career if my songs had not been hits. When I started I was 22, and there were only newcomers in my films. If my songs were not hits, then people would not have given me any chances in my career," Suri said.
"Be it the songs 'Woh lamhe' or 'Jiya dhadak' and'" - the songs in my films were hits," he added.
"It is not only about me. From the times of 'Aashiqui' (1990), which starred newcomers, people went to watch the film because of its songs. It's always been there and it will go on," said Suri.
The buzz for his new film Ek Villain is also good, courtesy numbers like 'Galliyan' and 'Banjaara', which are already ruling the charts.
Mohit Suri says good songs have always drawn the audiences to watch a film. Let us hope it holds good for his Ek Villiain too which has Shraddha Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra which is hitting the theatres on June 27.
