Mumbai, April 14 (IANS) Director Dibakar Banerjee's films have a different flavour and earn critical acclaim. But he says he always aims for commercial success.
"Right from my first film, I have tried to enter into commercial space," the 42-year-old, who has made movies like "Khosla Ka Ghosla", "Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!" and "Love, Sex aur Dhokha", said here.
"I have tried to make all my films profitable and believe me, I don't do anything besides making films. So, all the money I earn comes from my films. So, I better be a commercial filmmaker and that's the case since 'Khosla ka Ghosla'," he added.
Dibakar's next project "Shanghai" is set for release June 8. It features Emraan Hashmi, Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin in key roles.
Priyanka wants to slap cousin Parineeti
Actress Priyanka Chopra says her cousin actress Parineeti Chopra deserves a slap for saying that she finds it awkward to stand next to a fit and sexy Priyanka.
"She needs a slap. I will throw her into the gym right now. I never heard her say something like that, but she is someone who is effervesent, energetic and beautiful. I guess it runs in the family," said Priyanka.

Her next, "Ishaqzaade" will hit theatres May 18. It features Boney Kapoor's son Arjun as her co-star.
Asking questions better than answering them: Ayushmann Khurrana
Veejay-turned-actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who has been busy promoting his debut Bollywood movie "Vicky Donor", says asking questions as an anchor was a far more comfortable experience than being on the other side of the microphone.
"Asking questions is still easy. I have been there and done that, but this is a new territory and a new zone. I am still learning," said the 27-year-old.
"I think I was used to asking questions, introducing people. That is by far more comfortable. I think you need to be more intelligent than that when you answer questions," added Ayushmann, who has been interacting a lot with journalists across the country to spread a word about his movie.
"Vicky Donor" is a film about sperm donation. It marks actor John Abraham's debut as a producer and is set for release April 20. It also features Yami Gautam and Annu Kapoor.
