"Because my vibe is very good with him. I always say I have so many known devils and I prefer them over unknown angels. So Paresh is one of my known devil who is a brilliant actor," the 55-year-old said in an interview.
"When you have such an actor who will do complete justice to your film, naturally you'll keep them in your cinema," he added.
A new trend of Rs.100 crore club has started in filmdom, but Priyadarshan says he does not bother about it concept.
"I don't believe in Rs. 100 crore club, I only believe that the producer should make money. You can make a film in Rs.2 crore and collect Rs.10 crore. And you make a film in Rs.90 crore and you get Rs.100 crore, both the people got 10 crore," Priyadarshan said.
"So what matters now is your film should be on-budget and should make money for producer. That is the only attitude," he added.
However, Priyadarshan believes an actor's saleability is what ultimately decides the budget and the earnings of a film.
"Naturally, stars also bring in people like Salman Khan. Today, if you just put up a poster of him and films are collecting. So then you can spend that kind of money on a Salman film because it's a guarantee that you are getting the money back," he said.
"The same thing you can't do it with a Shreyas Talpade film or a Ritesh Deshmukh film, you have to go according to what is the saleability of those heroes and make films within their limit so every film can be profitable," he added.
