I'm neither insecure, nor nervous: Randeep Hooda
May 21, 2007 - 9:29:57 AM

Mumbai, May 21 - Actor Randeep Hooda has only two films in hand, but refuses to take on work that doesn't challenge him.

A media recluse and utterly unperturbed by the hype that surrounds the average wannabe, Randeep is walking that thin line between dedication and compromise.

'I don't want to do the wrong kind of work. Better sparks in the dark than a full-blown fuse in the limelight,' he chuckles. 'Look, I've already proved myself as an actor in 'D',' Randeep told IANS.

''Look what an actor!' That phase is already done. Now I need to move forward, do work that takes me ahead. I don't mind doing less work. But I can't do bad work.'

'I enjoyed doing Ram Gopal Varma's 'Darna Zaroori Hai'. But yes, it is my last Ram Gopal Varma film. I don't see myself working in that organisation in the near future.'

Randeep has only two films right now.

'My international film 'Karma Confessions & Holy'...I don't know when it will be released here. Risk brought me and my 'D' director Vishram Sawant together again. It was a risk worth taking. I did a 360-degree about-turn from criminal to cop,' he said.

'I've signed one more film called 'Love Game' that will take me to the end of the year. I'm neither insecure nor nervous about less work. I'd be so if I wasn't getting work. But I continue to read scripts. None of them excites or challenges me. I've no idea what I'll do next. But whatever it is it will have to challenge me as an actor.

'I believe in Madonna's line. 'I'm not the owner of my talent, I'm the manager.' I think I'm managing quite well without support from anything except my own convictions.'
