Filmmaker Soumik Sen, whose debut film Gulaab Gang is yet to release, has already developed a few scripts for his upcoming projects, but one genre he doesn't wish to experiment with is a sex comedy.

Post Gulaab Gang, Sen is likely to make a biopic, a comedy and a thriller, but a sex comedy is a no-no.

"I will not direct an adult comedy. That doesn't work for me. I don't have anything against such films, but I don't have anything as such in mind," Sen told IANS.

"There is an audience for everything, but I would never want to see my name as a director of Grand Masti. I have serious issues about people making rape jokes," he added.

He believes filmmakers must be more responsible.

"Yes, I look down upon Grand Masti, but not on Delhi Belly. I loved Delhi Belly. As filmmakers, there is a line which we can draw and that's the line I will not cross," he said.

Sen's second film will be a biopic on late magician P.C. Sorcar.

"Besides, this I am trying to develop a comedy film with a supernatural element and a thriller love story," he said.
