"I don't care about the 100-crore club, or working with the biggest actors, I just want to keep my passion alive. I don't want to get stuck in the rut of making money. Invariably, after great success comes great failure. I have more chances of failing today than any other filmmaker has. But I'd rather fail on my own terms."
"India has finally accepted my voice. I've had hits and flops and will have them in the future too but at the end of it all, you get accepted for your voice," Mohit says.
"Murder 2 opened to a figure which was more than the budget of the film. The world was congratulating me but it just didn't feel right because the person I had to prove something to wasn't there. He had left the world. Though I had to smile for others, I couldn't fathom any of it. That's when Aashiqui 2 came to me and I felt so close to it that I had to make it," he pauses. "Then, even the fact that stars were coaxing me to make big-budget films with them didn't matter."
Mohit And Udita
"It's so amazing. I patched up with Udita towards the end of Aashiqui 2 shoot. We weren't even talking when the film went on floors. It's all still a blur because everything happened so fast. I am just glad it did."
"Making Aashiqui 2 was like talking to a psychiatrist. Maybe, because it was a space I liked being in the most."
