Solo hits are essential, says actor Shreyas Talpade

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Shreyas Talpade, who shot to fame with his debut in Nagesh Kukunoor`s `Iqbal`, says though solo hits are essential, its absence does not affect him.

"An actor definitely needs few solo hits in his career. I am not bogged down to give a solo hit ," Shreyas told reporters.

However, except for `Iqbal` and `Welcome to Sajjanpur` Shreyas hasn`t had a solo hit. Most of his movies have been multistarrers including `Om Shanti Om`, `Golmaal` series, and `Apna Sapna Money Money`

"I am not bothered when I share screen with established stars like Shahrukh Khan, Ajay Devgn and others. I believe it is more important to be a part of good product where you also get recognized and appreciated as much as the main actor or the hero," Shreyas said.

But the 34-year-old actor is pinning hope on his up- coming solo hero film `Chemistry`, where he will be seen alongside Soha Ali Khan and Tanisha Mukerjee.

"With `Chemistry` I might be able to deliver a solo hit. I know where I stand. It is a matter of time and I am sure I will one day reach where I want to," Shreyas said.

Shreyas will be seen in Vinay Shukla`s `Mirch` that releases this Friday.

The film, which also stars Boman Irani, Konkana Sen, Raima Sen, Rajpal Yadav, Tisca Chopra, Ila Arun and Arunonday Singh, revolves around four short stories based on womanhood and adultery.

"The film deals with the subject of infidelity. I play Raima`s husband in the film," he said.

The actor`s up-coming projects include debutant director Sai Kabir`s `Chemistry`, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra`s `Teen Thay Bhai` starring Om Puri, Deepak Dobriyal and Shreyas as brothers and Sagar Bellary`s `Hum Tum Aur Shabana`.
