New Delhi: Filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor has tried his hands at romantic, high on emotions and out-of-the-box cinema, and says now he dreams of making a big-budget action movie.

The work of 46-year-old filmmaker includes ‘Hyderabad Blues’, ‘Iqbal’, ‘Bollywood Calling’, ‘3 Deewarein’ and ‘Dor’.

"The genre that attracts me the most and the one I have not dabbled in is a big budget action film. It would be great to actually try my hand at one," Kukunoor, busy with post-production of upcoming movie ‘Laxmi’, said.

The filmmaker has also acted in his directorial ventures ‘3 Deewarein’ and ‘Hyderabad Blues’. In ‘Laxmi’, he once again faces the camera to play a pimp.

And he is open to the idea of taking up a lead role again in future.

"You never know. After `3 Deewarein`, I have not done any role as large as in `Laxmi`. Acting is a skill and if you don`t work hard, you can lose it. Who knows if there is a role and demands so and I believe I can bring justice to it," said the filmmaker who also featured in his film ‘Dor’.
