"They can type-cast (anyone), but the industry has also got the capability to look through that. I don't think I was (ever) type-cast. People think that comedy is easy, but it is the most difficult genre. If one can do comedy, then he can do anything.
"That is why I think Aditya Chopra offered me 'Kill Dil', which is an action film. So, I think one should not get type-cast," Ali told IANS.
Direced by Shaad Ali, "Kill Dil" also features Ranveer Singh and Parineeti Chopra.
The film will go on floors in September as Ali finishes shooting for "Aman ki Asha". He will start shooting for the film in March.
"It might release Aug 15. It is a comedy film. I am playing a Pakistani boy in it," he added.
