Actor Rajneesh Duggal says for any celebrity, handling fame is the most arduous task and feels some times it takes a toll on their growth.

"Being a part of the industry, I know fame can very easily get to your head, fan following can make you get lost anytime. There are very few people who can comfortably handle and digest fame...fame can be a problem in the growth of a celebrity," Rajneesh told IANS in an interview..

The actor, who debuted in Bollywood with the movie 1920, is now looking forward to Dangerous Ishq, in which he has teamed up with Karisma Kapoor. The film will see him in four different characters from four different time zones and different religion.

Scheduled for a May 11 release, Dangerous Ishhq, is a thriller directed by Vikram Bhatt, also features Divya Dutta.

"I'm playing four characters with unique shades. I'm playing a Hindu from Rajasthan and a Muslim in another sequence. Since it was four different characters, I had to put all of my energy into it," he said refusing to reveal about the other two parts.

Rajneesh, who played a religious person in 1920, expressed his views on religion related conflict in the country saying, "I think, the conflict in religion is created by politics. The major fight in the religion is related to politics. Most of the politicians are fighting over religion in our country."

"I also feel conflict is always created by either fanatics or politicians. Common people hardly fight over religion, they respect each other and their faith. They want to live in harmony," added the model-turned actor who is a devotee of Lord Krishna.
