The actor said that he has been trying to understand why people do not think of him in more such roles after his acting in Kasoor. For the unversed, Kasoor (2001) bankrolled by A Mukesh Bhatt production, had Aftab Shivdasani play the role of a murderer. The actor’s performance was also lauded by fans and critics.
