Aftab Shivdasani turning music composer
At 30, Aftab Shivdasani’s probably one of the youngest actor-turned-producer’s around. But that’s not all that’s there to him. He has written the script of his first home production and now the multi-talented Aftab plans to compose music too! Taking his new “roles” seriously, the actor says, “I’m a sucker for music so I’m planning on doing the background score for films too.”
Currently busy with Sanjay Gupta’s Acid Factory, the actor tells BT that he’s game for anything that excites him. “I can’t sit around doing the same stuff. I agree that acting is what I like the most but how long will I do that,” he asks. Hence the actor’s branching out to newer avenues. Getting back to his baby, no we are not talking about Aamna Shariff or any of his ex-girlfriends, as he doesn’t like to clarify any rumours, Aftab tells us that he’s written his film’s script in tandem with a writer from Delhi.
“I launched my company because I liked the script. It’s been the most exciting part of my life. Even working in 30 films can’t equate to the joy of writing a script,” says the actor, who right now plans to make films for himself. “That’s because I’m not really happy with the kind of films being offered to me but that doesn’t mean that I’m going to churn film after film for myself,” says Aftab.
The actor believes that nobody can be down in the dumps for long. “It’s all a journey. I have had a couple of films that have worked and some haven’t. It’ a graph that moves in both directions. I’m not extremely happy but I’m content with my career. It’s human to make mistakes and I’m learning. Today I’m much wiser and mature and less impulsive,” says Aftab, who is super thrilled to be part of Acid Factory where he plays a rogue along with other actors like Fardeen Khan, Manoj Bajpai, Danny Dengzongpa,
Dia Mirza, Dino Morea and Gulshan Grover. “I always wanted to work with Sanjay (Gupta). I like his style, his new-age vision. It’s a dream to be in his action films as he gives you a good
platform,” says Aftab who will also be seen in Aloo Chaat and Daddy Cool.
