“I want to make other films like a comedy, musical or a romantic movie, but it’ll again be in my parameters and will be my kind of cinema. I definitely want to try other genres but a Madhur Bhandarkar stamp will always be there on it,” he told IANS.

“Jail”, which stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Mugdha Godse, is a film on the gritty realities of a prison and the inmates. The other critically acclaimed movies Bhandarkar has made include “Chandni Bar”, “Page 3″, “Corporate” and “Fashion”.

Singer Anushka debuts as actress in ‘Dulha Mil Gaya’

Pop star-turned-VJ Anushka Manchanda is all set to make her acting debut now with comedy “Dulha Mil Gaya”, which stars superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Sushmita Sen and Fardeen Khan.

The 24-year-old has sung three songs in the film and is more excited about her music career than acting.

“It’s not much…maybe a scene or two…but the amount of fun I had doing it was superb. I have three songs in the film and I am more excited about that than anything else as I had a blast doing them and had a great time singing,” Anushka told IANS.

“Acting etc is fun and if something like that happens, I’ll do it but I am very clear that my main focus right now is my music. I have age on my side; so if I can do other things I’d like to,” said Anushka, who has sung in films like “Golmaal” and “Chandni Chowk To China”.

The multi-starrer is slated for a Dec 11 release.
