"In recent years, Mithun has shifted gears to doing comedies and has garnered appreciation for his roles in films like Chandni Chowk To China, Golmaal 3, F.A.L.T.U. and most recently Housefull 2."
New Delhi, Oct 4 - At 62, Mithun Chakraborty, who is enjoying the work he is getting as an actor, feels nowadays it is easier to make films than to release them in theatres.

Aajkal picture banana aasaan ho gaya hai aur release karna mushkil -. That's unfortunate. If you have money, then you can do anything, but if you don't, you have to suffer, Mithun told IANS in an interview.

I really can't say anything else on this, he added.

The actor is glad that the Indian film industry is churning out films at par with Hollywood, but rues that it is losing touch with its roots.

The industry has evolved in a big way, we have started making more films. We have started making movies like Hollywood and have become technically advanced too, he said.

But I feel somewhere Indian cinema losing its touch with desi roots. Maybe people's minds have also changed, but still we are doing quite well in the current scenario, he added.

The actor has been actively involved in regional cinema too.

I am an actor and an actor should keep changing his path. But still I believe that there is no cinema called an arthouse cinema or commercial film, he said.

You like it, it's a good film, if you don't it's a bad film. For me a film that runs is an A-grade film and one that doesn't run is a C-grade film. For me, a film is a film, he added.

In recent years, Mithun has shifted gears to doing comedies and has garnered appreciation for his roles in films like Chandni Chowk To China, Golmaal 3, F.A.L.T.U. and most recently Housefull 2.

Asked what does he have to say about his second innings in Bollywood, Mithun said: I don't have any second innings, I started it and I am still playing. Ultimately its entertainment. People spend money to buy tickets and come and watch the film. The sole aim is to entertain people.
