One likes love stories and the other action but both complement each other and would like to make films of all kinds, says Dinesh Vijan of his partnership with Saif Ali Khan and their banner Illuminati Films, which has produced two hits and one miss.

"We like all kinds of films. I like love stories a lot. Saif likes action and horror. So between the two of us, we would like to make all kinds of films. We complement each other's strengths and weaknesses," Vijan told IANS.

Finalising a project solely depends upon the script. The banner's latest release is the Saif-Deepika Padukone-Diana Penty-starrer "Cocktail".

"We look at the story and if we connect with it, we take it up no matter what genre it is. The idea is to connect with the story and to bag the director who can make it in the best possible manner," he said.

According to Vijan, Illuminati Films is open to making animation films as well but have not found the right kind of script yet.

Talking about the challenges of making an action thriller, Vijan said: "A love story takes a lot of time on script, but the execution part in an action film is huge. It is all about blocking roads and other complicated stuff. In a love story, you have to focus a lot more on performance whereas in an action film, the logistics and numbers make it more challenging."

Their first production "Love Aaj Kal", about confused youngsters and their complicated relationship fundas, wooed the box office and turned into a hit. Spy thriller "Agent Vinod", which didn't do well, followed. They have struck big again with "Cocktail", a youth-centric urban drama.

"Cocktail" has grossed Rs.36 crore in the opening weekend.

"Agent Vinod" was not a box office success, but Vijan says he has no regrets. "It is all part of the game. It ('Agent Vinod') is a film that we stand by and it is a film that was really special for us."

He holds "Agent Vinod" director Sriram Raghavan in high regard and calls him "a talented director".

"Obviously we learn from everything which we do. As a film we stand by it and love it very much. The idea is to make a film with complete conviction," he said.
