Mumbai: Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor, whose recent release "Half Girlfriend" is receiving rave reviews from audiences despite sharp reactions from the critics, claimed that at the end of the day, the movies are made for audiences and not the critics.

"Each individual has a different point of view and I am no one who will change their opinion. Most of the time people (critics) want to see a certain type of film, but I feel, people should watch a film with an open mind just the way the audience watches it.

"The audience is more open to giving the film space and time to enjoy what it is meant for rather than having preconceived notions. I feel the audience is the most important part of filmmaking because at the end of the day, you are making a film for them and not for a limited bunch of people who call themselves critics," Arjun said here on Wednesday.

He added, "I feel really happy when my film works at the box office because eventually, good box office numbers is the barometer of success for any film. If people are buying tickets at the box office, then why should I feel negativity around me? I thrive on positivity in life rather than negativity," he added.

Shraddha Kapoor played the female lead opposite Arjun Kapoor in Half Girlfriend, which is based on the novel of the same name, written by renowned author Chetan Bhagat. The film, directed by Mohit Suri, hit theaters on May 19.
