Your last film KisKiskoPyaarKa­roon, didn’t have a unique con­cept. Don’t you feel it was a very dicey choice to make? More so as you de­buted with a guy from the tele­vi­sion in­dus­try and in your sec­ond film, you did the same. Didn’t you feel it was a risky propo­si­tion? Pri­ety Shinde (Goa)

ELLI: My film was a com­plete en­ter­tainer, so I don’t think my choice was dicey. And yes, this ques­tion of tele­vi­sion ac­tors is quite funny. But I’d like to say that I don’t like to judge any­one for be­ing from tele­vi­sion. They are very tal­ented. And when I hear a script, I don’t bother to check who is op­po­site me. I see what the script is about. Cast­ing for the other roles is not my call, I don’t be­lieve that I only have to work with cer­tain peo­ple. I am happy to do a nice script and a nice role, and that is the only thing I worry about. Even though Mickey Virus didn’t do well, I was crit­i­cally ap­pre­ci­ated, and that makes a big dif­fer­ence. Kapil Sharma is very tal­ented and huge in the tele­vi­sion in­dus­try. The script was tai­lor­made for him. For me, get­ting to work with Ab­bas Mas­tan sir was a big thing. I felt very hon­oured and blessed!
