After successfully directing superhit comedy film Mithya , actor-director Rajat Kapoor is back as an actor in debutant director Arindam Nandy's 'Via Darjeeling.'

Kapoor plays the role of a journalist in the psychological thriller starring Kay Kay Menon , Sonali Kulkarni , Vinay Pathak and Parvin Dabas His last film was the rib-tickling comedy Bheja Fry .




"I am playing the character of a journalist in the film, who during a chat with his friends start discussing a very interesting story," says Kapoor describing his role in the film.

'Via Darjeeling' is the story of Ankur (KK Menon) and Rimli (Sonali Kulkarni), a newly married couple on their honeymoon in Darjeeling. On the eve of their return to Kolkata, the husband Ankur disappears and police inspector incharge Robin Bose is unable to trace him.

Two years later, Inspector Bose relates the case to a few friends who are intrigued by the story and offer their own interpretations of what would have happened to Ankur.

Inspired by legendary Japanese filmmaker, Akiro Kurusova's film 'Rashomon,' the film's narrative goes through various twists opening itself up to new meanings.

"The film has a very interesting theme, one which leads people to deliver their own interpretations about the story. It tries to show that even truth has many versions and it is not something absolute," he says.

Though, Kapoor is more famous for his acting in successful box office hits like Monsoon Wedding , Dil Chahta Hai , Corporate and 'Bheja Fry,' it is the role of a director which appeals him more than anything.

"I would like to be remembered as a director more than an actor. I am going to start my next project in about 10 days. It is a triangular love story," says Kapoor.

The actor says he is also happy with the positive changes in Bollywood. While many big budget films have bombed badly at the Box Office, small budget films with good storyline are making a comeback like never before.

"This change in Bollywood is very encouraging. Films like Khosla Ka Ghosla , 'Bheja Fry' and 'Mithya' have done very well at the box office in recent times."

"Actually, it has to do with the rise of multiplexes. They have influenced the movie watching like never before. More people are now coming out to watch films, which has benefited these films" points out Kapoor.

Apart from acting, Kapoor promises to continue making films on ideas that attract him.
