New Delhi, Nov 5 (IANS) Aftab Shivdasani has a reason for doing films few and far between in recent times. He says he didn't get offers which excited him enough as an actor.

"I wasn't really busy, but the offers that came my way were not much exciting. I decided not to work instead of just doing anything. I decided to wait and spend time with myself. The break happened by chance. It was not something I had planned, but I welcomed it," Aftab told IANS.

Aftab made his acting debut with 1999 film "Mast". With around 40 films to his credit, he started fading away from the screen sometime back. He says he took a break from films because the offers he got were not exciting enough.

Before "Mast", Aftab had featured as a child artist in commercials and as well as films like "Mr.India", "Shahenshah", "ChaalBaaz" and "Insaniyat".

Later, he was seen in films like "Kasoor", "Kya Yehi Pyaar Hai", "Awara Paagal Deewana", "Hungama", "Footpath", "Masti" and "Koi Aap Sa". In 2011, he featured in "Bin Bulaye Baraati", and his "1920 - Evil Returns" released Nov 2.

Directed by Bhushan Patel, the film is franchise of 2008 release "1920" and also stars Tia Bajpai and Sagar Saikia in the lead roles.

Talking about his experience of working in a horror film, he said: "It is not much different from the usual. It is not as if people are shouting and going crazy. It is an intense love story with an underbelly of horror, that is how I look at it."

But the actor is not looking for any particular genre of films.

"I am looking for something commercial and entertaining, but nothing particular. I just want it to excite me as an actor," said Aftab.
