Shiney hopes to shine again after `Ghost`
Mumbai: After wading through troubled times, actor Shiney Ahuja is back in fray with his latest film `Ghost` and says that his new film has some similarity with his horror-thriller `Bhool Bhulaiyaa`.
"The story of `Ghost` is totally different from `Bhool Bhulaiyaa` but in a way it is a similar film. Although it`s a horror film, it`s a very good love story. `Bhool Bhulaiyaa` had a thriller element but it was essentially a love story. Similarly, this is a very nice love story," Shiney said here at a party held for `Ghost`.
Shiney`s career hit a rough patch when in 2009 his maid accused him of raping her. On March 30, 2011, Shiney was sentenced to seven years in prison. He is currently out on bail.
Now the 37-year-old has his hopes pinned on "Ghost" to resurrect his career. He has teamed up with Sayali Bhagat in the film, which releases Dec 16.
"Only god knows what will happen after this film. But I hope that from spotboys to producers, all those who have worked on this film would be benefited," Shiney said.
His career was on the right track after a promising debut with `Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi` in 2005 for which he also bagged the Filmfare Award for best male debut.
Then he was seen in `Gangster - A Love Story`, `Woh Lamhe`, `Life in a...Metro`, and `Khoya Khoya Chand`.
Shiney is also part of Jahnu Barua`s "Har Pal", which features Preity Zinta, Issha Koppikar and Dharmendra, but the film has been in a limbo ever since the actor`s rape trial started. It went on floors in 2007, but is yet to see the light of the day.
