Actor Shahid Kapoor, who is gearing up to do two action films to be directed by Prabhu Deva and Bejoy Nambiar each, is hopeful that these films achieve the Rs. 100 crore feat.

The actor will be seen in two action films - one to be directed by Prabhu Deva called Namak and the other by Bejoy Nambiar of Shaitan fame.

Considering that Prabhu Deva's two directorial ventures - Wanted with Salman Khan and Rowdy Rathore with Akshay Kumar, are part of the Rs. 100 crore club, Shahid hopes his films achieve the same feat.

"I don't know about this Rs. 100 crore club. It will happen whenever it has to. There is no plan for that. I hope I am able to achieve it (the benchmark his movies have set at the box office). Every actor hopes his movies to do maximum business, but one can't predict this thing," Shahid told PTI in an exclusive interview.

"It all depends on the taste and preferences of the audience. We are talking about actors, who have been in the industry for 20-22 years, are highly established and also a certain genre (action). Now that genre has more appeal, so bigger the star, bigger the collections," he said.

Personally, Shahid enjoys action-masala films like Dabangg, Rowdy Rathore and hence he prefers to do a film of this genre.

 "Earlier stars like Mithunda, Amitji used to come out with these kinds of films. But, when we were in our teens, we did not see such films. Now again, we have movies like Wanted, Rowdy Rathore, Dabangg, Bodyguard. When I see these films I find them entertaining. I started enjoying them a lot," Shahid said.
