Mumbai: Bollywood actor Arshad Warsi, who feels that after a heavy dose of comedy he needs to do serious roles, is looking forward to playing a negative role in `Zila Ghaziabad`.

"I`m going to start a film called `Zila Ghaziabad` in July. It`s a film about the Ghaziabad mafia, that entire belt, politics and all that stuff. I`m playing a negative role for the first time, a complete bad guy with no justifications. The role is that of a guy who works for the politicians in that region," Arshad told reporters.

Newcomer Anand will direct the film. Sanjay Dutt and Vivek Oberoi are rumoured to be part of the project; there is, however, no confirmation as of now.
