Actor Emraan Hashmi, who started his career with action film "Footpath" and moved on to romance and drama, says he would love to go back to the genre, provided he gets a film with a strong story and character.
"I would want a character-driven action film," Emraan said here.
"Generally action-driven films are low on story. I personally would like to do films where from point A to point Z there is a well-etched character and a good script. Definitely if it's an action film, it has to be a good script," he added.
The 32-year-old feels it's important for action filmmakers to strike the right balance between the stunts and story.
"Action films are high on stunts, spectacle and grandeur and that's the way it should be. But I would want the best of both worlds. I would want the grandeur, I would want the spectacle in the action film and as well as a very good character-driven plot and a good story," he added.
The actor spoke on the sidelines of the music launch of his next film "Jannat 2". Directed by Kunal Deshmukh, "Jannat 2" also features Esha Gupta, Randeep Hooda and Imran Zahid.
He will also be seen with his "The Dirty Picture" co-star Vidya Balan once again in a comedy film titled "Ghanchakkar". Emraan is confident that the film will break the mould about the genre.
"'Ghanchakkar' is a comedy film, but I want to call it just a comedy film because there are certain pre-conceived notions about comedy and this film will break all of those.
"At the same time, you will be on the floor in the film. It's a very funny film with some thrilling moments and suspense," Emraan said.
Besides "Jannat 2", Emraan is currently busy will multiple projects like "Raaz 3D" and "Shanghai".
