Suniel Shetty has finally decided to become choosy when it comes to selecting films. “In past, I have done lot of films for the sake of friendship, but not anymore. I have stopped taking decisions from my heart,” says Suniel Shetty.

With an average hit in Shaadi Se Pehle and a superhit in Phir Hera Pheri, Suniel Shetty's latest comedy film, Apna Sapna Money Money, just releasedlast week. "It has just released so I am unsure about its fate at the box office,” he adds.

Goodbye to movies?
“No, not all,” he answers quickly. “It’s all rubbish. I am not working for money. I’m acting because I am passionate about cinema. However, I feel that the stars don’t get paid well.”

Right now, he’s busy shooting for Apoorva Lakhia’s Shootout at Lokhandwala and is taking it easy. “I want to go slow,” he says. “If I were to do two films in a year, I’d rather do International Hera Pheri and a sequel to Kaante.”

Clean slate:
In his 15-year-long career, Suniel has had a clean record as far as controversies are concerned.

“I am proud of the fact that I have a happy family and a house in which three generations live together. That’s the reason I don’t sell much, but I am okay with it. I have always led my life the way I have wanted to and will always do so.”
