Actor Abhay Doel has an altogether diverse taste when it comes to choosing a film. He has been applauded for his choices and continues to stick to his convictions in terms of picking a project.

However, Abhay also says he doesn’t mind trying his hands at typical  formula films — but conditions applied.

 

“Most people feel I won’t like the script, so they don’t even come to me. It’s not that I will not do formula films, if you write a nice formula film I will do it,” he says.

 “For me Socha Na Tha and Dev D are main stream films. I keep thinking how can I make middle of the road cinema without compromising,” adds Abhay.

 Currently, busy promoting Nanu Ki Jaanu, a horror comedy opposite Patralekhaa, the actor reveals the struggle one goes through by mixing up horror and comedy.

 “It’s a very entertaining film but twisted. It’s not possible to mix horror and comedy. I suppose marrying the two is making it different,” he smiles.

 

But Abhay is quick to add that comedy is all about tragedy. “People ask, ‘do you play up the humour’? I say, no, I play up the tragedy. This film it’s very tragic, but we have shown it humorously. All comedies are about tragedies,” he says.
