"I want to direct films that get my attention. I want to direct films like Rajkumar Hirani like 'Munna Bhai M.B.B.S'. His films, which have a message, have left an immense impact," Arshad told IANS.
"It should be entertaining too. A variety of films are being made. I want to tell stories that need to be told," said the 45-year-old.
Before becoming an actor, Arshad was a choreographer and he has displayed his dancing prowess on the big screen, but says they were easy ones.
"Choreography is my passion and I like to dance. I did films that had dance, but not exactly the kind of dance that I want to do. It was all easy dance steps, which were easy to pick up. I would like to do full-fledged dancing," he said.
