'I have changed my preferences'

Actor Komal is gearing up for the release of his next project ‘Deal Raja’ where he essays the role of a conman, who finds new ways to con people and make money. However devious the route, the man is willing to take the risk and go the extra mile to make money.

The actor is also taking time to sign his next project because he has been devoting a lot of time to overseeing the construction of his new home, which he says took a lot of time to plan and design. In an interview with Nina C George, Komal talks about why he has become choosy about work.    

What’s your role in ‘Deal Raja’?

I play a conman who is willing to strike a deal for the pettiest of jobs just to make some extra money. The real test of this conman is when he takes up a deal that is offered by a girl. His job is to find the girl’s father who went missing a while ago. He gets into a lot of trouble when trying to find the father. The rest of the story delves into how this conman wriggles out of the problem.   

You seem to have lost a lot of weight. Is it for any project?

I’ve been doing a lot of power yoga and I also underwent pranic healing. This has brought my weight under control and has helped me get into shape. I also feel the weight loss has worked well for me because I have been getting some good projects after that.

Were you disillusioned with the kind of projects you were getting?

Yes I was. I want to break free from the tag of a comedian and attempt all kinds of  roles. I have played the lead in a lot of projects and now I have changed my preferences and started looking out for projects that offer a unique character.

What’s your next project?

I’ve heard a script which is about the conversation between god and a man. The man sets out to find god and if god really exists. I hope to start work on this soon. The project will be a mix of comedy and action.

Are you producing any projects?

There are a couple of offbeat subjects that I would like to produce. These have worked well in the Kannada film industry and I also wish to introduce new talent through the films that I produce.
