He might be one of the finest actors in Bollywood with an impeccable comic timing but Arshad Warsi , whose latest film Krazzy 4 has just hit the screens, says he didn’t dream of becoming an actor.

"I never wanted to be an actor. I was also terrible in business, so I didn't want to be a businessman either. I was interested in choreography. But now after spending 12 years in the industry I think people have accepted me and I am a decent actor now," says Arshad, who started his career with 'Tere Mere Sapne' in 1996.




Arshad, who immortalised the character of 'Circuit' a henchman of 'Munnabhai' in Munnabhai MBBS and its sequel Lage Raho Munnabhai says, he never tried to do anything different to get into focus.

"I never tried anything out of the way. For me, it has always been being in the right place at the right time. Now I'm getting a variety of roles and things are looking good," he says.

Arshad's 'Krazzy 4,' which is supposed to be a rip off from Howard Zieff's 'The Dream Team', has received some flak from the critics. However, Arshad has no qualms about acting in such flicks.

"I don’t care for honesty. Every film is a copy of some other film, so it doesn't bother me. As long as the Indian junta is happy and are enjoying the flicks, I am happy to do such films," he says.

Arshad, who has done a plethora of comic roles in films like Sunday , Golmaal , Dhamaal , Maine Pyar Kyon Kiya , the Munnabhai series etc, says he would like to portray a grey character with lots of shades but feels that Bollywood doesn't produce enough films with such roles and so naturally his choices are limited.

"Bollywood produces a lot of comedy films. About 80 per cent films are comedy while the remaining are flicks with non-comedy or shady characters. So, naturally the choice is limited. If one has to zero in on a shady or grey character which suits his taste, he has less options to choose from," he says.

However, Arshad says he is looking forward to such a role. "I really want to do some serious and complex roles with lots of grey shades, like my character in Sehar . Everyday, I listen to a number of stories. Although, I haven't come across anything like that, I hope to do such a role soon," he says.

Arshad, who has essayed the role of a 'tapori' and a police officer with equal finesse, says his bag is full as he has a number of releases this year.

"'Mr. White Mr. Black' ( Mr. Black Mr. White ) with Sunil Shetty is ready for release. I have almost completed Shortcut where I am pairing up with Akshay Khanna . Also Golmaal Returns is ready. There is another film, which is my home production. I have written the screenplay and dialogues of the film," he says.
