When it rains, it pours. This is indeed the case with Aftab Shivdasani as well who is now looking at making a huge comeback in the year 2009 with as many as four releases. In fact practically speaking, Aftab could well be making a real meaningful big screen appearance after a sabbatical of two years. In 2008, DE TAALI was released after some delay while MONEY HAI TOH HONEY HAI featured him in a miniscule role.

CHECK OUT: ALOO CHAAT is a Hrishikesh Mukherjee kind of film

So was it a conscious move to stay away from the camera for a while in the last few months?

''No, it wasn't like that actually'', denies Aftab, ''2008 was in fact one of the busier years. I was busy finishing as many as four movies - ALOO CHAAT, ACID FACTORY, DADDY COOL and KAMBAKTH ISHQ. All of these movies are now expected to release between the months of March and July. Yes, DE TAALI and MONEY HAI TOH HONEY HAI didn't do well due to which people didn't see much of me last year. They started wondering that where was I. But hey, I was very much on the scene!''

Was it difficult to keep his motivation up even though 2008 wasn't exactly great for him?

''Let me correct you. The year was not great from the point of view of the box office performance of the films that were released. But if you look at it from professional standpoint, it worked just well because the movies I am currently involved with have been great so far'', immediately states Aftab.

He goes on to philosophize, ''Moreover, I was committed to these films and I am glad they are all getting ready for release now. Yes, any artist will look for appreciation and I too hope for it, want it. Sometimes you get it, sometimes you don't. But you don't stop and keep pondering over it. You move on. You start looking at your newer projects, begin assessing them. This is what I did.''
