Saqib Saleem who is well known for his film ‘Bombay Talkies,’ says he was absent from films because some of his projects got shelved.
The 28-year-old ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’ actor also says he is choosy about films he is getting. “I can’t do too many films. I take time with my films and I want to work on every script properly before I move on to something else.”
“Sometimes, people don’t make the kind of films you want to do. So, I took a call that I will not do films. It is better to do a right a film rather than a bad project,” Saqib told .
“I was doing a couple of films which got shelved before a week the shooting was supposed to start. I guess that also put me at the backfoot. I was driving things in life on fourth gear, but now I am on third gear.”
Saqib’s next project is a feel good love story which also stars ‘Pink’ actress Taapsee Pannu. The cast and crew are in Delhi for the shooting.
He is ecstatic to be in Delhi for shooting. “I am excited as I have never shot in Delhi before. This is my home, I have grown up here and there is nothing more special than shooting in your hometown. And more than me, my friends and family are excited. They want to visit the sets. I am looking forward to the schedule.”
Saqib, who is the younger brother of actress Huma Qureshi, moved to Mumbai to pursue his acting dreams. – CINEWS
