It's a known fact that Arshad Warsi would be turning director with AKKAD. What is not known though is that with this film, he is all set to follow the (mostly) unexplored territory by adapting Guy Ritchie style of narrative and give audience something new, different and exciting to munch on in AKKAD.

"That's right; I have closely followed Guy Ritchie films over the years. I guess they are genres in themselves. Whether it is SHERLOCK HOLMES, ROCK N ROLLA, SNATCH or LOCK STOCK and TWO SMOKING BARRELS - this guy never fails to amaze me", says Arshad who has made a gradual transition from being an actor to a producer (HUM TUM AUR GHOST) and now a director.

CHECK OUT: Arshad Warsi is single again 

In today's Bollywood, Quentin Tarantino and Guy Ritchie influence is pretty much in. Anubahv Sinha tried it in CASH and just about managed to get it right at certain junctures. Director jodi of Raj Nidimoru & Krishna DK did make heads turn with their debut directorial venture 99 which clearly had a narrative style that was inspired from the Hollywood bigwigs. Newcomer Pankaj Advani too cracked it reasonably well in SANKAT CITY though the film went totally unnoticed.

However, the biggest of all remains KAMINEY where Vishal Bharadwaj cracked it in a big way and saw good critical and commercial success coming his way. Early this year his assistant Abhishek Chaubhey too got it right with Arshad's own ISHQIYA.

"Well, I am going to shoot AKKAD in way that Bollywood audience hasn't witnessed yet. Yes, I know that there is a lot of difficulty involved in it but I am up for the challenge", Arshad says in a confident tone.
