Only commercial film guarantees more exposure: Shiv Pandit

Mumbai: Actor Shiv Pandit, who turned to films with `Shaitan` after doing a successful TV show like `F.I.R.` says he became choosy after his first movie as he wanted to do a commercial film to reach a larger audience.

He will soon be seen in the `Boss` commercial masala entertainer.

"Post `Shaitan`, I became a little choosy. Very few people must have watched `Shaitan`, but what happens with a film like `Boss`, especially for a young actor like me.. I need to balance between commercial films and high-concept films," Shiv said here Thursday while promoting the film at a college.

Shiv believes it is only when you do a typical Bollywood potboiler that a larger audience opens up to an actor`s work.

"It is important to do commercial films because otherwise however hard you work, it`s of no use. `Boss` is a kind of film which gives actors like me an opportunity to show their work to the public. After that, I can also do a high-concept film, that`s not a problem," he said.

Directed by Anthony D`Souza, `Boss` stars Akshay Kumar in the lead, while Aditi Rao Hydari plays Shiv`s love interest. The film hits theatres Oct 16.
