'Actor' Pankaj Kapoor doesn't interfere in creative decisions

He has years of experience in showbiz, but actor-director Pankaj Kapoor says that when he works as an actor, he doesn't interfere in the creative decisions of any film.

"When I am doing a role, I don't think of direction. Whatever my director says, I do that... and whatever is the demand of my character, I only do that. I don't get into creative decisions of the director as I am acting in it," said Pankaj.

Pankaj made his directorial debut with the 2011 film "Mausam" with Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor. The film didn't meet the expectations of the audience.

As an actor, Pankaj is now gearing up for the release of his new film "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola". Directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, the film also features Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma. It releases Jan 11.

Sequels are like any other movie: Jacqueline

Of the six films that Jacqueline Fernandez has done so far, three have been sequels. But the actress says she treats them like any other movie.

"This is my third sequel. I treat them as any other movie. I don't think it makes a difference in terms of how I would view my character. I think you make the most of it. But what's great is that you can be part of, what I would call, a legacy. So you don't mind that," she told IANS.

The actress, who made her Bollywood debut in 2009 with "Aladin", has been part of sequels like "Murder 2", "Housefull 2" and now "Race 2", which releases Jan 25.
