Arshad Warsi is self confessedly happy at playing the mean guy in SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON. For someone who is 'innocently negative' in the film, Arshad Warsi promises that audience will root for his character of 'Raju' who does everything wrong and yet makes everyone smiles.

''Well, I am the ultimate 'kameena' in the film'', laughs Arshad Warsi, ''He is such a bad person that audience will thoroughly enjoy his 'kameenapan' in the film. He does everything that is wrong, doesn't take a step in a direction which is right and generally makes life miserable for Akshaye. Still, all of this is done in a manner which is humorous without making situations overtly serious or dramatic.

A Neeraj Vora film, SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON reunites Akshaye and Arshad after HULCHUL.

''Well, our relationship is completely different here when compared to what it was in HULCHUL'', reveals Arshad, ''In this film, I am the Ranjeet and Shakti Kapoor of the story. Raju isn't someone who is negative-negative in the true terms but still his antics would make you wonder that what next mischief is he up to.

After being seen in two stuck-in-the-cans forgettable films KISSE PYAAR KAROON and EK SE BURE DO earlier this year, he is finally seeing a fresh release of his.

''And I am supremely confident about this one'', exclaims Arshad, ''It is a lovely film and comes with all the right reasons to be a success at the box office.''
