“I wish to direct at least one or two
films. I am not against massy films.
Economics is important in filmmaking.
I want to stay in commercial
parameters, yet make a sensible film
like ‘Highway’ and ‘Band Baaja
Baaraat’, which are not stupid,”
Apurva, who loves director Imtiaz Ali’s
work, told IANS in a group interview.
He believes a project must make
business sense.
"If someone gives me money for films,
the movie should at least break even,
otherwise that person won’t work with
me again," he added.
Having made his Bollywood debut with
Shah Rukh Khan-starrer "Pardes" in
1997, Apurva went on to appear in
films like "Pyaar Koi Khel Nahin" and
"Krodh". He couldn't taste success in
the film industry. He then turned to
the small screen, where his popularity
went notches higher via a key role in
the hit show "Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahi".
There's been no looking back ever
Will he ever direct a TV show?
“In television industry, unfortunately
directors are unsung heroes. Actors get
more credit on TV,” he said.
His other passion is photography.
“I enjoy photography. I want to do a
course. I like to learn. I would like to
join an institute for it,” he said.
The adventure lover, who participated
in reality show “Bigg Boss” last year,
wants to be a part of stunt-based
reality show “Khatron Ke Khiladi”.
“‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ is more like my
kind of genre. I like adventure. I’ve
done hand gliding, scuba diving and
all,” he said.
