What's Aashiq Banaya Aapne and Dil Diya Hai director Aaditya Datt making next? "I am enjoying a break in Dubai. I am chilling out with my friends here, recharging my batteries," he says. But Aaditya's mind is concurrently working on a series of projects, even while vacationing. "I am committed to Bala Bhai [producer of A.B.A. and D.D.H.]. Also, Vashu Bhagnani has signed me for his forthcoming venture. A project with T-Series is also on the anvil," he divulges.
But what's really interesting is that Emraan Hashmi is standing by Aaditya, even though their last film, Dil Diya Hai, didn't work at the box-office. In an industry where equations change every Friday, it's heartening to note that Aaditya and Emraan have decided to work with each other again. "I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't disheartened with the failure of Dil Diya Hai. But friends like Emraan make life easier," he smiles.
On an analyzing mode, Aaditya feels that Dil Diya Hai didn't perform well for two reasons primarily. "One, the Indian audiences cannot accept the hero to behave in an off-putting manner. The whole idea of Emraan pushing his sweetheart into the flesh trade came as a rude shock to the traditional Indian audiences. Also -- I hate to say this -- Emraan and sex go together. He's an amazing actor, but it's difficult to break the shackles of your image," he states.
