The director, who earned a lot of credibility with his internationally acclaimed 2010 directorial debut "Udaan", didn't receive the same response for "Lootera".
Despite being made with newcomer Rajat Barmecha in the lead, "Udaan" took off in a big way and became the talk of the town. On the contrary, made with stars like Ranvir Singh and Sonakshi Sinha, the period drama couldn't have the same effect.
"Yes, the film has got a mixed response, but you can't please everybody through your film. Some have liked it and some have not. But I am happy that many people have liked the film," Motwane told IANS.
"I take criticism very positively if it's genuine. If you are criticising with some agenda, then I will not take it," he added.
He admits that he took a long time to come up with his second film, but his next will not take that long.
He said: "Yes, I took a bit long after 'Udaan', but now I am going on a holiday and as soon as I come back, I will start my next. This time I will not take too long," he said but refused to divulge details about his third film saying: "I can't talk about it right now".
