Actor Ranvir Shorey feels his potential hasn’t been tapped by the mainstream cinema and he finds his existence in the alternative, independent films more relevant. “I haven’t got the kind of films from mainstream cinema which I would have wanted. The actor says big films are revenue driven but he prefers to stick to creative satisfaction. But then mainstream cinema has a different bunch of people who are happy working with each other which is fine. The 44-year-old actor, known for his performances in films like Mithya, Titli and Khosla Ka Ghosla, feels he doesn’t relate to commercial cinema’s lesser sensible approach. They (people who are part of commercial cinema) are driven by revenue and I am driven by creative satisfaction.” Ranvir says his aim is to constantly strengthen the independent cinema and to make it stand in front of huge “commercial Bollywood” projects. I can’t dumb down for the audience because I believe my audience is at least as smart as I am.
