Sharma opened up when he was asked to name a recent overrated film that he has watched.

Asked about a recent film he would have done a better job directing it, he again mentioned "Tubelight".

After blockbusters like "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and "Ek Tha Tiger", "Tubelight" was Salman Khan's third collaboration with director Kabir Khan. The film is based on the 2015 film, "Little Boy", and reimagined against the backdrop of the India-China war of 1962.

On being asked about the one rumour about his "Badhai Ho" lead actor Ayushmann Khurrana that he would like to spread, Sharma said: "It would be that he is the wittiest, and has a mindblowing sense of humour. He has got a plethora of jokes that are amazing."

Talking about his popular "Badhai Ho", Sharma said: "The one thing I knew about the movie was that it was a beautiful script and I have to do justice to this."

"My background is advertising and because of this, I keep looking for ideas. I never really thought that a certain thing wouldn't work because 'Badhai Ho' had a lot of big ideas," he said on the show, "Starry Nights Gen Y".

Overrated means a film that got a lot of money or praise that it didn't deserve. Tubelight was a flop in both aspects. Of course anyone could say I think I could reimagine Tubelight and fix it, because the flaws were so obvious and so many. Now if he had the guts to say Tiger or Bajrangi Bhaijaan were overrated, that would be answering the question. But it would make him look like a prick because they were good movies.
