The young director is ready to take the responsibility for the flop of Jhootha Hi Sahi and he wants to move on. So, he has already started penning his next film a dark espionage thriller and wishes to cast the likes of Naseeruddin Shah, Paresh Rawal and Ratna Shah in it.
Abbas goes on to say that while there is a romantic side to a person, there is this comic self too, but he wants to break out and do something that"s much more cerebral. Hence, casting actors of the caliber of Naseeruddin and Paresh Rawal is a comfortable choice as they will bring in their own sensitivity, maturity, wisdom and wit.
Also venturing with a dark thriller will also not limit his audience to young youth while rom-coms do limit the choice of actors to work with as well as the audience. So he is gearing up to not only give himself a hit but make some money for his producer Madhu Mantena with his next film.
