I have always gone for character oriented roles: Neil

Mumbai: After his last release `Players` drew a blank at the box office, actor Neil Nitin Mukesh is now gearing up for Bejoy Nambiar`s `David` and a psychological thriller called `3G`, where his character has various layers.

"I am doing `David` and preparations are on for it. But before that, I am doing a film with Sonal Chauhan. It is called `3G`. It’s a horror film. It is on the lines of ‘What Lies Beneath’ and `Sixth Sense`. It is a psychological horror. I have always gone for character oriented roles," he said.

"My character in `3G` is completely layered. It is about a guy who gets possessed and like I said it is a psychological horror so to portray a character like that is rather difficult, it is not about one of those gory faces horror...It is a mind game. So anything with mind is interesting," he said.

Neil feels our industry is way behind Hollywood and that there is a need for futuristic films to be made here as well.

"I want a special change in our industry and that is of futuristic cinema.I would like audience to accept futuristic films. We are 50-60 years behind Hollywood. There are lots of such films like `Jurassic Park`, `The Avengers` that get released here and they do good business," Neil told reporters here at an event, last evening.

"But when we make futuristic films here they do not do well. I feel cinema is fictitious and larger than life so should make these kind of films and hence I did `Aa Dekhen Zaara` (a 2009 sci-fi romantic film)," he said.
