Sanjay Leela Bhansali is riding high on the success of his magnum opus Bajirao Mastani. But now the director says he wants his next project to be something unpredictable.
“I think I make love stories the best. My genre is love stories. But I don’t know what I will get up and do next. I want to be in an unpredictable space, I don’t want to be in a comfort zone all the time,” Bhansali told PTI.
“Sometimes you come up with the best when you are out of your comfort zone. I want to do something unexpected, that people do not expect from me. It will keep me on a high alert. I will be more focused,” he said.
Asked if he is trying to make an action ‘masala’ entertainer like his production Rowdy Rathore, he said, “No, not ‘Rowdy Rathore’ kind of a film. I am proud and happy I did that film. But that is not the genre I would want to try.”
There is a buzz in the media that he will be teaming up with Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan for his next film. To a query if a film will happen with Shah Rukh, he said, “No… Not right now. All these reports floating in the media are baseless speculations.”
Bhansali is still working on the script and casting of his next directorial venture and will make an announcement when he is ready.
