Actor Rajeev Khandelwal is proud of his work and says he will never give into the regular boy meets girl love story.
“I will not go for anything cliché. I want to do a different love story. If I have waited all these years there is a reason for it. I am not insecure, nor do I belong to the type of people who would think that this particular genre gives you a lot of popularity so why not do it,” says Khandelwal, who rose to fame after doing a romantic television show Kahiin Toh Hoga.
In fact, he is waiting for something iconic to come his way. “I know I have kept a lot of people away from my onscreen romance. But if I do it, it has to be iconic,” he says. The actor, who made his Bollywood debut with Aamir(2008) , went on to do off beat movies such as Soundtrack(2011), Table No 21 (2013) and Samrat & Co (2014).
“After a few years, if I want to look back, I want to know that the films I did made sense and not something that has been forgotten in 2 days. There are films which release on a Friday with a lot of excitement. But my Monday, it’s forgotten. I don’t want to do such a thing,” says the actor, who was last seen in the film Fever.
