He is one of the few actors to have made a transition from small screen to cinema but Rajeev Khandelwal, who made his Bollywood debut with Aamir, says he does not believe in knocking doors for a role.
"I have not knocked on anyone's door for a role. I have not asked big names like Yash Chopra for a role. I want to do films with people who are honest and passionate about their craft. For me a film is not a business proposition," Rajeev told PTI.
The actor, who played a common man struggling against terrorism in Aamir and an inspector in Shaitan, says he wants to do films which push him beyond his comfort zone.
"I like to do films that push my boundaries. A film like Aamir is still remembered by the audience because it was different although it was a small budget film. One thing that I have realised is that budgets don't decide the quality of films," he said.
Rajeev also said that he does not do anything consciously and when it comes to choosing a film, he prefers to go by his instincts.
"I do not do anything consciously. Other than my fitness, I don't take care of anything in my life. I go by instincts, I go with the flow."
