Actor Tusshar Kapoor, who has been on a successful sail with multi-starrers is in no mood to give up his desire for a solo hit as he feels its a requisite to prove your worth and become a star.

"I want to do solo films. In this industry no matter how popular you are if you don't have a solo hit..the proof of being a star is not there. You have to prove it to the industry. Even though you are capable of giving hit films but you have to deliver a solo hit," Tusshar told PTI in an interview.

TussharTusshar started his career in Bollywood with Satish Kaushik directed Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai in 2001. Despite the movie being a hit at the box office Tusshar could not find much success in his other solo releases. His next film was Vashu Bhagnani's Jeena Sirf Merre Liye (2002) opposite Kareena. The film failed at the box office.

Then came up sister Ekta Kapoor's Kucch To Hai a horror film opposite Esha Deol which was again a failure, another 2003 film, Yeh Dil opposite Anita Hassanandani, proved to be one of the biggest disasters of the year.

"My first film was a solo - Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai and that was a hit but then there were a few flop films. I have not had a solo hit for quite some time. I am aiming for a solo hit and luckily I am getting opportunities. I did have offer for solo films - the one film with Rajshri banners - Love You Mr Kalakar but it did not work for me," Tusshar said.

"I am not giving up on solo films. Multi starrers are keeping me safe. They are also risky but I feel I am fortunate enough to be part of very good big multi starrers. A solo film is must...it is something I will not give up," he said.

Tusshar struck gold with multi-starrers when in Raj Kumar Santoshi's 'Khakee' he got an opportunity to rub shoulders with stalwarts like Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar. He was appreciated for his performance in the film.
