Filmmaker Subhash Ghai, who final directed Kartik Aaryan starrer Kanchi in 2014, stated that movies made with low budgets can even create wonders on the field workplace. Ghai cited motion pictures like Iqbal and Joggers Park as examples, with respective budgets of Rs 2 crore and Rs 1 crore.

In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, the director stated that Sairaat and The Kashmir Files had been a success on the field workplace and added, “A strong picture with low budget also can create a box office record. The biggest film which is made on a budget of Rs 500 crore sometimes fails to even collect Rs 50 crore. One has to understand if the narrative is being made for OTT or cinema.” The director additionally stated that in his opinion, Kashmir Files was an OTT movie.

Talking about how the distributors are all about numbers, Subhash Ghai stated, “They call my accountant and ask about the collections of my recent films. Their creative wisdom depends on the figures and numbers. It should not be in figures according to me. When Sholay became a hit in 1975, I told my writers and directors that the biggest hit will eventually become your enemy and one should never make a film like that.”
