This will be Ronit`s second film with Karan Johar after `Student Of The Year`.

The film starring Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor is a big screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat`s bestseller `2 States: The Story of My Marriage`.

" `2 States` is an intense story and it`s a sought of negative role. I am playing Arjun`s father`s role. It`s like a guest appearance and the character speaks a lot in it," he added.

In the film, a Punjabi boy falls in love with a Tamil girl, which leads to a regional and cultural clash.

The ace actor, who is ruling the small screen, wants to do films with knowledgeable people.

"I don`t feel I have so much of knowledge that I can carry a film on my shoulders," said Ronit, who had impressed with his performance as a strict father in Vikramaditya Motwane`s `Udaan`.

The actor, who started his career with movies like `Jaan Tere Naam`, is happy with his work on the small screen.
