"No, the success and failure of another film doesn't affect our film in anyway. If somebody's film does well, it doesn't hurt us. If somebody's film fails, it doesn't help us," Imran said at an event here.
After making a dream debut with the blockbuster "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na" in 2007, Imran went through a dull period. He bounced back last year with the release of adult comedy "Delhi Belly", with raked in moolah at the box-office despite being an A-movie with locker room talk.
Asked what does he think is the yardstick for success, Imran said, "Success yardstick is what you invest in making a film vis-a-vis what it earns. If you invest Rs.5 crore in a film and if you earn Rs.10 crore that is a successful film...," he added.
