Bollywood star Arshad Warsi is a huge fan of Guy Ritchie and he is planning to adopt a complex narrative style inspired by the movies of British filmmaker in his directorial debut Akkad.entertainment Updated: May 22, 2010 15:16 IST
"I have closely followed Guy Ritchie films over the years. I guess they are genres in themselves. Whether it is Sherlock Holmes, Rock N Rolla, Snatch or Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - this guy never fails to amaze me," Arshad told PTI.
The actor, best known for his onscreen role of Circuit in Munnabhai series, has made a gradual transition from being an actor to a producer Hum Tum Aur Ghost and now he is all set to turn director with Akkad.
"I am going to shoot Akkad in way that Bollywood audience hasn't witnessed yet. Yes, I know that there is a lot of difficulty involved in it but I am up for the challenge," Arshad said.
The actor is aware that Indian audience aren't used to complex narratives especially when it comes to Ritchie who is known for making quite a few flip-flops between multiple episodes.
"I am certainly aware about that. But my style would have a Guy Ritchie feel to it but the overall narrative would be far simpler. See, you can make a complicated film and pat your back as a director. However, for audience, the final result should be simpler. The audience should eventually understand what the film was all about.
"I want them to go back home, start discussing about the film and then manage to crack what it was all about. It is then that they would realise the work of director in making a complicated screenplay eventually look easy," Arshad said.
