Mumbai: Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar, who has been part of hit Hindi films like `Tere Bin Laden` and the recent `Chashme Baddoor` says he likes to experiment and challenge himself.

Zafar is four-films-old and has tried to bring variety in his profile early. `Tere Bin Laden` was a satire, `Mere Brother Ki Dhulan`, a romantic-comedy, `London Paris New York`, again of the same genre and `Chashme Baddoor`, a pure comedy.

"I would like to believe that I would be comfortable in any space. As an actor you should be flexible and versatile. I like to experiment and challenge myself," Ali told reporters.

Ali has been roped in for Yash Raj Films (YRF) newest project `Kill Dil`. The film is directed by Shaad Ali who made `Saathiya` and it also features Ranveer Singh and Parineeti Chopra in lead roles.
"Its (`Kill Dil`) an action film. Its going to be very different from my previous roles and films in every way. You will see me in a completely new avatar," he said.

The 32-year-old will be seen in a rugged avatar for a change and he has started exercising to get in shape.

"I am gearing up the fitness regime and working on the look as instructed by the director Shaad Ali. I will be working out to gain some muscle for this film," he added.

After `Mere Brother Ki Dulhan`, this is his second film with YRF. And he says he "feels very privileged to work with YRF banner once again".

Filmmaker E Niwas` next project `Aman Ki Asha` also stars Ali alongside Yami Gautam of `Vicky Donor` fame. And he is all praise for his co-star.

"Yami is a delight to work with. She is very real and a simple girl. `Aman ki Asha` was a tough shoot but filled with fun. I am enjoying doing the film," he said.

Ali is quite happy with the success of his latest film - `Chashme Baddoor` a remake of the 80s movie of the same name.

"I am happy that the film did well. For some reason right from the word go I was very confident about the project and it was one of the most stress free shoots for me," he said.
