"I can never make a hardcore commercial film I can work with commercial actors, but they would still have to work in my space, like John (Abraham) did with 'Aashayein' or Akshay (Kumar) did with '8x10 Tasveer'. If there is another script that lends itself to it, I would work on it gladly. Nothing is written off," Kukunoo told IANS.

What's he working on now?

"I'm always scripting and working on a bunch of ideas, but right now I'm in the process of clearing my head after working on 'Dhanak'. Films which go to festivals need a lot of work," he added.

His film "Dhanak", which revolves around an eight-year-old visually challenged boy whose elder sister promises him that his vision will return before his ninth birthday, is due to be screened at the prestigious Berlin International Film Festival. It will have its world premiere there.
