Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, whose last film "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" reaped gold at the box office, believes that minting money is one parameter to measure a film's success, but numbers are not the be-all-and-end-all of filmmaking.

At an event here, Farhan was asked if he is an actor who keeps a track of the numbers that his movies make.

He said: "Not to the extent that it drives me crazy. When you work on your film, you want it to do well and one barometer of knowing whether your film is doing well or not is the box office.

"The other is how people are talking about it, then how many years after it has released people still remember it, which is also another level of success. So that's one aspect of it that you like to know. But is your happiness only going to be based on this and life not move on if you don't get those numbers? You have to move on."

The 39-year-old spoke on the sidelines of the launch function of a new handset by Intel here Wednesday.

Farhan's latest film "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" crossed the Rs.100 crore mark at the box office and the film was even declared tax-free.
