Before the release of “Flying Life”, many had the impression that Khan Khan was fat. And “fat” is what Khan Khan himself said in an interview. "I started to make a psychological construct for everyone, so if you look at it with such great expectation, you will find that, hey, it is not so fat."
Since the first film was shot in 2014, Khan Khan has brought three films in five years, with the first two box office totaled 1.6 billion. He also completed a turn from writer to director.
Some changes have been noticed over the years. Khan Khan's weight grew from 58 kg in childhood to 66 kg, the number of Weibo shows is 691, most of which are related to film-related materials, he grew out of solitude in the development of his own team and became Manager Nine years ago, Han Han said that young artists should not be alone. Today he has the opportunity to build a big ship and transport more people in a big river.
Today, Khan Khan has his own film company. In addition to the period of promotion of the film, he rarely appeared in public, and his friend's assessment was that Han Han became an adult. According to Khan Khan, these changes are associated not so much with the years, but with a change in their interests. He still pays attention to social news, but speaks carefully because he does not want to talk. He never cared about his appreciation by the outside world and even felt that the “rebellious” label attached to him was a misunderstanding.
Khan Khan entered the world of adults.

The Beijing News: Your first two films contain racing elements, and Flying Life, which will be released on New Year's Day, will further deepen the theme of the car. Will you be familiar with or more intensely write a familiar life story?
Khan Khan: Actual maintenance is relatively difficult, but in China I am the most professional in this race. The first two are just a small background. I want to try. "Flying Life" is a story about a car. For example, the main character of "Winning the Waves" is the driver, you also need to switch to go, chess or swimmer. However, it bothers me that it’s not good to look at the picture: “The chess player and his father’s reconciliation”, then you shoot him to take part in the game “Go”, 50 seconds before the next move, can you still watch the movie?
The Beijing News: In the news you often show the actors various actions and demonstrate pole dance. Are you the director who likes to play on stage?
Khan Khan: I did not skip the pole dance earlier, so I gave the actor a demonstration. I don't think everyone missed it. Just trick it and show it. In the end, it is the human instinct to see the steel pipe and want to go upstairs. I love to play, but I do not play well, I hope that the actors do not play according to my demonstration.
The Beijing News: Every time you choose an actor with your eyes, you are very unique. Are these actors basically yours?
Khan Khan: It must be. No one else can replace me in order to choose an actor, because I have many stories in my head, I will close my eyes and turn their faces.
I sometimes pick up actors using replay, and I have about two or three repetitions in my head. Then I close my eyes and put the actor's face in him. If I can't get through my inner ridge, even if I can't get through. The box office of the actor is no better.
The Beijing News: When you filmed "There Will Be No Future," there were a lot of cross-border directors, but there must be a threshold for filming. It looks like you have completed the transboundary process very easily, but in private. A lot of hard work?
Khan Khan: I think the most important thing is to find what suits you. As long as your character or gene is suitable for this, it’s not lazy: regular efforts can do more with less. The biggest problem for many people is to do things that do not suit them, so even if they pay 10,000 times more effort, they will gradually move away from their goals.
Compared with effort, it is very important to know yourself. Some of my friends know a lot of people, but they don't know themselves. They do not know whether their personality and temper can be controlled. When they get out of control and collapse, many efforts are in vain. But I know myself better.
Beijing News: How do you know that you are suitable for making films?
Khan Khan: I started studying photography in elementary school, this is part of my mind. When you take a lot of movies, you find that it is a fixed process. Be a director in a fixed process. The more you know, the more you know about photography, light, sound, and some special effects. It is more convenient for all departments to work. Including writing scripts, you also need to know what can and cannot be done. The script should be written in the framework of modern technology. If this is not possible, it is useless.
Beijing News: Do you usually increase the amount of filming or study director techniques as a kind of training?
Khan Khan: I don’t care if it’s a learning process, it’s a process of people’s own time spending. I usually watch movies. I often see that a bad movie is off, and I don’t want to watch it again. But when I see a good movie, I can't help thinking about two brushes and three brushes. There is no need to study how it is reflected and how the position is placed. It doesn’t matter, for example, from a close scene from a close scene, I don’t have a difference from the point of view, because its dramatic tension is already there. There are many directors who discussed this on stage. The last result we saw was that the whole movie was good, so we looked back and it seemed like he did everything right. For example, if a manuscript is awarded, he will feel that he has written every word and every sentence.
But in essence, as a newcomer who has just joined a series, he is not going to learn how to write this manuscript, how to begin, how to finish, but how he discovered this subject, how to track it, and how to choose materials. Need to study.
The Beijing News: This year’s Lunar New Year contest is tough. At the same time, there are films of Ning Hao and Xing Ye. What are your expectations and confidence in "Flying Life"?
Khan Khan: All are predecessors. They are very good directors. I am very happy that I can stand with them on the same battlefield. I just want to save money and save the book.
I think the first is to protect the capital and explain it to investors. The second is to be worthy of the audience, so that everyone thinks that this film is really good. Thirdly, I can confront myself.
Beijing News: put your position at the end?
Khan Khan: I spent so much money on making such a film, I already fully deserve myself. I want to do a comedy on racing. No one in the country dares to take pictures, because I feel that the car issue is not good, and the ticket office is not good. This whole film is already my personal product, I can not carry other personal items in the film.
Beijing News: As a race car driver and filmmaker, which of the “car racing champions” and “box office champions” is more awkward for your personal experience?
Khan Khan: "The box office champion" has a category. Getting a championship at the Spring Festival is very difficult. He will be very happy to receive it. Just like competition, there will be different levels of competition. If this is the main champion of the domestic race and the boxing champion, I definitely want to be the second because I won seven championships in top national racing competitions.

Beijing News: Your three films are written by you and under your leadership. Will the future work with other screenwriters? Still interested in your own story?
Khan Khan: I also want to work with other screenwriters if there are good stories. But in fact, I feel that I still have a lot of stories that I have not finished. Some directors are especially good at making other people's novels, standing on their shoulders to achieve very tall. Everyone has different personalities. I still like to shoot myself. Even if growth is a little lower, my interest and happiness will be much higher.
Beijing News: Can you only write what you personally experienced?

Beijing News: You are a person who does not like to communicate. But now you have to manage the company. Are you having fun being a leader?
Khan Khan: In fact, I am not very good at managing and I do not feel happy.

If the cinema and television companies have no work, the lighting control is good, it is useless, everyone is well organized and cannot shoot it.
The Beijing News: Is there a desire for creativity? For example, write an area that you do not know, science fiction or detective?
Han Han: I think I can write very well. I have never been a policeman or an astronaut, but I think I can write it well, because I was interested in these things from a young age. I read similar books and magazines, and I can also use some of my own experience. It is well written. But some of them cannot be written well, such as the life of white-collar workers, the intrigue of the office, because I did not go to work and I did not like it.

The Beijing News: Look at the "Xiao Shuo" that you just made. Many people think that you are softer than before. Have you noticed your changes?
Khan Khan: I speak slowly. As I cough for more than a month because of a sore throat, speak quickly or loudly and easily cough, I think this is the only reason. If I raise my voice a little and say the same thing (Khan Khan suddenly picks up the tone), you will feel that this person is too much, so this is a kind of appearance.
The Beijing News: Many people not only hope to see the director or writer face in you, but also hope that when you appear, you can take advantage of the shortcomings. Can you feel the expectation of the outside world?
Khan Khan: I don't care. I am a man who debuted last century. It has long been indifferent to the expectations of the outside world, they feel that what I want to do is completely irrelevant to what I should do. I will not live in planning my life for others.
Knowledge and ignorance are not at all necessary. It is not necessary to have such a person in every era. Time can go down. This is also my personal responsibility. If you want to make a film, the working time of this film will be very long. To prepare for the initial stage and edit it later, it will take more than a year. Writing a comment is not a program or an emotional product. It takes a lot of time to understand how things are going with this issue, even if you cannot get first-hand information, the information is not very good, and you should follow it after writing. You must study how the situation develops. You may not be contaminated by some data. The information concludes this is a very energetic and time consuming thing. If I shot on the set, I still cleaned the phone and tracked the incident, which was not responsible for the work on the film.
So, do it right, do it well, do not step on two boats, do not try to get into another area, after all, everything must be responsible. Article writing is also responsible for the parties to the incident and the readers.

Even if I want to play, I do not have big changes in behavior patterns.
