Abhishek wants to change the trend with 2 releases in April

Earlier this year, Priyanka Chopra starrer 'Saat Khoon Maaf' and Akshay Kumar's 'Patiala House' bombed at the box office."It is always good to change the trend. It depends on the film. Your budget should depend upon the kind of story you have. I have never understood when people say that the industry is going through a bad phase because of box office collection and then one film does well and we say that the industry has bounced back," Abhishek said.

Directed by debutant director Abhinay Deo, 'Game', is a murder mystery which will be released on April 1. Rohan Sippy's 'Dum Maro Dum', an action thriller, hits cinema houses on April 22.

"We can't force you to see our films, we can just excite. Budgets do matter if it is insanely priced. There is no one here to just make money... we are here to make a quality film that everybody is proud of. I hope the films do well," he said.

'Game' is about four people from different countries invited by a common acquaintance to a remote island. The four strangers have an interconnecting factor - a woman.
'Dum Maro Dum' revolves around the lives of six Indians who meet in Goa and their lives change forever after getting involved with drug mafia.

The 35-year-old actor ruled out media reports that there are similarities between the two films.

"The only similarity in both the films is that I am there in them, and April being the month of release. There is no other parallel at all. 'Game' is a whodunnit murder mystery and 'Dum Maro Dum' an action thriller. So there is nothing similar."

Abhishek said he has no strategy about picking up films."When you hear a script and it inspires you, you just do it. I have never worked on strategising - like doing a comedy first then action then something else. It just happened that I am doing a murder mystery first and then an action thriller," Abhishek said.

"Besides these two films, I have 'Dhoom 3' which would release by the end of next year. But before that there will be three or four releases. These are all scripts that excited me and I am very happy to be part of them," the actor said.
