Dino Morea on sex, sequels and starting his own company.. interviewed by Roshmila Bhattacharya



Sex on the Beach

, that's the title of your episodic story in

Dus Kahaniyan

. Plenty of sizzle, huh?

It's a 12-minute film.. not an adult film. And it's more bizarre than brazen.



I'm told you bonded big time with your co-star Tareena Patel?


Tareena is a pretty girl from South Africa.



You saw her in

Bhool Bhulaiya

.


Yeah, we'd all get together and party on the beach after the shoot.



Anamika

, a desi adaptation of

Rebecca

,. follows

Dus Kahaniyan

, right?

(Frowns)

Anamika's

only inspired by a story that's a lot like

Rebecca

. It's a story about relationships.. a broken marriage. I play a classy executive.. designer suits, a beard and earrings. The balis point to the fact that I come from one of Rajathan's royal families.



Milind Soman, your

Bhram

co-star, is a contemporary.

But despite the fact that you're playing brothers, you were far from buddy buddy.


I've hardly walked the ramp with Milind. I was in school and college when he was a top model. By the time I entered, he was on his way out.



<b1>

Bhram's

been ready for a while but apparently has no takers.

That's why the release is being pushed back, from one month to the next?

The DI has just been completed. The director, wanted different shades for different scenes. That's why the post-production took so long. It should come by the end of January ..



A sequel to

Raaz

is being planned.. without you.


Yeah, and I've been wondering how they're going to carry forward the story without the original cast.

Raaz

was one of the biggest grosser ever, and I'd have loved to be a part of the sequel. The original brings back lots of memories.



Wouldn't you agree that your luck ran out after you split with Bipasha Basu professionally?

We're open to a good script but nothing has come our way. I believe you create your own luck. It's a coincidence that

Raaz

, our first film together, was a blockbuster. But I've had other hits since..

Aksar

and

Tom, Dick and Harry

.



You couldn't cash in on them?

The films that followed were at best lukewarm.


That's why I'm in no hurry to sign on new movies. It's not everyday that a Sanjay Leela Bhansali comes along with a Rs 10-15 crore bounty to splurge on marketing. I'm hoping though that

Anamika

that's with the same director can revive the

Aksar

magic.



We've heard that Anant Mahadevan is contemplating an

Aksar 2

?


I don't know about

Aksar

but a

Tom, Dick and Harry

sequel was on the cards. Then, the director and the producer fell through.



Now that you have your own production company you could launch your own films?

My company should be functioning full steam by next year. Then, I can think of not just a musical, but an action flick and a laugh riot too. I'd love my first film to be a comedy. I'm waiting for someone to bring me a good script.



Your company was behind the paint commercial featuring Karan Johar and Kareena Kapoor. But despite the hype surrounding it, the ad turned out to be a disappointment.

It was supposed to create waves in the ad industry.. and it did. It was expected to make people go out and buy the paint.. I'm told sales have gone up. So I think it hit its target.
