Aditya, 31, who made his Bollywood debut in 2009 with London Dreams, as a supporting actor, has so far featured in romantic films. Aditya said, "I would love to experiment with different genres of films. I know that right now I have the image of a romantic hero, but I want to do an action and comedy... I am open to it," as reported by news agency IANS. Aditya and Shraddha's OK Jaanu releases on January 13 and is directed by Saathiya director Shaad Ali.
Aditya's career reached a turning point with Mohit Suri's Aashiqui 2 in 2013. He was paired opposite Shraddha Kapoor. Aashiqui 2 was fourth highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2013.
Talking about his upcoming film, Aditya told IANS, "When it comes to Ok Jaanu, I think though I've played lover in my earlier films, none of them were a light-hearted romantic film like this. So I think people will get to see a different side."
