So for now, Aftab has decided to concentrate on "men's films" like Sanjay Gupta's "Jazbaa", a remake of "Four Brothers" that he is currently working on. Also in hand is a sequel to "Masti", a risqué comedy that received many brickbats. In the pipeline are E. Niwas' comedy "De Taali" with Riteish Deshmukh and Sanjay Gupta's "Love Dale" with Neha Uberoi.
Incidentally, "Love Dale" is Aftab's first film with a female
director, Jasmeet. A previous venture titled "Dost" directed by Veena
Mehta was shelved. The actor now wishes to work with the likes of Deepa
Mehta and Mira Nair as they make films "close to his heart". High time
Aftab proved his worth in the industry or else, he might be written off
before he gets to act in men's films and with female directors.
