'Possible to achieve the stardom Salman or I have'
New Delhi: Having scaled the peak of stardom, actor Sanjay Dutt believes that other would-be superstars can also taste such success if they look beyond multiplexes.
The Munna Bhai MBBS actor says to achieve the kind of fame that he and his contemporaries still enjoy, young actors, apart from choosing meaty characters, should start focusing on audiences beyond multiplexes or urban cinema halls.
"It is possible to achieve what Salman or Shah Rukh or I have," said the 58-year-old actor, still remembered for his memorable roles of Ballu, Raghu, Munna, Musabhai and Kancha Cheena.
"I believe the younger generation just needs to make right choices. They need to understand that India is not only about multiplexes, there is a lot of audience beyond that," he told, recently.
The moment actors realise this, they start their journey to stardom, he said.
"The moment you reach out to the audiences in the interiors of the country you will start becoming the star. I think they should get down to making films for these people," Dutt said.
The actor, who will be essaying the role of a father in his comeback movie Bhoomi, said one of the key factors behind his success is the fact that he has not stuck to playing the conventional "hero".
