It's an all new beginning that Suniel Shetty is enjoying for himself. Post the critical acclaim that RED ALERT - THE WAR WITHIN has fetched for itself as well as its lead actor Suniel Shetty, the man is on a different high altogether. He admits that it has been the most unbelievable appreciation which is coming his way, something that has been unprecedented in his two decade long career so far.
"Yes, great films are indeed coming in my way now. I too am maturing as an actor", says Suniel who also showed sparks in his lesser heard TUM MILO TO SAHI earlier this year, "It is a fact that when good roles are written, age is not a factor to be thought if all. This is the reason why something like RED ALERT is a great high for me as an actor."
Talking about age, it also appears that RED ALERT has come at just the right time for Suniel. After all he has been in the industry for 20 years now.
"I don't think that's actually the case", Suniel disagrees here, "I have played a long innings. 20 years is no small deal. Yes, in this time period I chose to do some trash as well. That was my choice after all but then I did my heart told me to do. Still, I consciously worked towards a change in image."
He adds after a pause, "I could have done many more action films and carried on in the same vein that I had started. But then I started experimenting with roles. I survived and picked up some of the best roles, even though they were unconventional. RED ALERT was one of them."
