New Delhi: `Rock On` star Arjun Rampal is all set to follow in on the footsteps of Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Shilpa Shetty by launching his signature perfume.

Rampal has been quietly working on it and has formalised his arrangement with a perfume company which would soon launch a signature collection on his name.

"That`s right, there is a perfume being launched that would have my signature on it along with it`s own brand name," Rampal told reporters.

As per sources, the perfume would be called `Alive`. However Arjun is unwilling to comment on it before an official announcement.

"It is a great moment. To have your own signature on a perfume is indeed a high," said the actor, who has also turned entrepreneur with his club LAP in the capital.

"During last 5-6 months I have been concentrating a lot on LAP. I have definite plans to expand it," he adds.

The actor had a variety of roles last year in films like `Raajneeti`, Housefull` and `We Are Family`, but says he will be selective in his movie assignments this year.

"I don`t enjoy taking a roller coaster ride; I would rather be stable. Right now I am liking my space and zone. I want to be slow and steady," said the actor, who got a career boost with his villainous turn in `Om Shanti Om` in 2007.

Rampal, who will be working in a Prakash Jha project besides his role in Shah Rukh Khan`s `Ra.One`.

The actor is playing an anti-hero in the multi-crore sci-fi movie, which has been directed by Anubhav Sinha.

Rampal, who lost weight to portray the role, took a break after the filming of the superhero flick.

"The break after an intense shooting schedule of `Ra. 1` helped. I have just shot for a cameo in David Dhawan`s `Rascals`. Now that my coming two years are all sorted out, I would be working throughout this duration at a stretch. My next break won`t be before 2013 now."
