After trying his hand at serious marital drama in Ankahee, Aftab Shivdasani has decided to return to the farcical fold with Aankh Micholi.

After two comic hits Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega and Masti and turning down several offers to get seriously funny, Aftab has decided to swerve back into a familiar lane.

"That's right," Aftab revealed. "I'm going back to comedy with Anant Mahadevan's film which is tentatively titled Aankh Micholi. It's a fun film featuring Fardeen Khan and me," Aftab said.

"Then there's another comedy with E. Niwas featuring Riteish Deshmukh. People have enjoyed watching me with Fardeen in Love Ke Liye... and with Riteish in Masti. So I suppose you'd call it a winning combination."

However, the actor doesn't sound too happy about returning to comedy.

"But what do we do? My friend Vikram Bhatt and I did Ankahee, which we thought was really pushing the envelope. God knows where the envelope got pushed. It didn't work. I'm still all for doing different films. But I've to do work that audiences watch. If it's comedy that they want, I'll just have to do that genre for now."
