Having delivered hits in comedy and romance genres, director Anand L Rai says he would now like to make an action drama film.
“I would like to make an action-drama film. I would want to try it. I have an idea. But it is going to be a tough one. It will not be like Hollywood style. It (action) will be backed by emotions and drama,” Rai told PTI.
When asked if his idea is on the lines of films like “Dabangg” and “Rowdy Rathore”, he said, “My film will be different. It will have right dose of action coupled with emotions.”
