Actor Rajeev Khandelwal who made his film debut with the 2008 flick Aamir, is happy exploring new and challenging roles and opts to leave romantic comedies for the veterans who are good at it.

“I don’t want to do romantic comedies and films that are being done in dozens, everyone’s doing these film and we have been watching these films for the longest time. I would rather let these films be handled by those who are veterans in this genre and would rather be a part of the movement which is at least attempting to give something new and aims in adding variety to the industry.”

When asked about his upcoming movie Table No. 21, Rajeev says, “It is the first film of the 2013 and it’s definitely not going to remind you of anything that you have seen in the past. Every character is multi-dimensional and the layers keep getting uncovered as the film progresses. As far as the concept of 21 is concerned, it has a deep relation with the Article 21 of our Constitution, you’ll see the connection when you watch the film.” The 37-year-old actor says he’s satisfied with his journey from TV to films.

“The journey has been very smooth and I am very happy with the way it has happened, but at the same time I haven’t moved away from TV. Whenever I get a good offer, I’d be happy to take it up.”
