Director Sabbir Khan, busy promoting his not-so-lenghty movie "Heopanti", launch pad of Jackie Shroff's son Tiger, feels it's time to reduce the length of films as audiences don't have the patience to sit through long-drawn-out presentations.

"The people's patience level has gone down and they don't have time, and I feel change is the only constant that you must adapt. It's high time that the length of the films should be reduced. We should not ignore it," Sabbir told IANS.

"My film 'Heropanti' is not too long. I saw to it that my film is not too long," added the director who debuted with Akshay Kumar-Kareena Kapoor starrer 2009 romantic comedy "Kambakkht Ishq".

His second film "Heropanti" is coming out May 23. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala it features another newcomer Kriti Sanon in the female lead opposite Tiger. The film is about two hours long, against the two-and-a-half to three hours for an average Hindi film.

Asked what kind of films he enjoys watching, Sabbir said: "As a cinegoer I see all kind of films."

"I am as excited about watching 'The Lunchbox' as 'Chennai Express'. If a script comes to me organically, then I would love to make such parallel films as well. I have three scripts in my mind and once 'Heropanti' is out of my system, I will think about it."
