About "Zed Plus", Adil said: "Someone had thought that I could be capable to do a light-hearted film, which is unlike serious drama! That was surprising. Very few people know that I have been trained as a clown and stand-up comedian. I wanted to do a light hearted film for a long time."

Directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, "Zed Plus" is a socio-political satire, which takes on the politics of communalism.

Adil says: "For me, this film is like breaking the stereotype. In Bollywood, the trend is that if you do one kind of role, you are offered the same kind of roles. I was surprised by this offer, and then Dr. Chandraprakash narrated the story to me. I was blown away."

The actor shares screen space with Mona Singh.

Praising the work of the actress, famed for TV show "Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin", he said: "Mona is a free spirit with a lot of sense of responsibility... she is full of life and has a sense of appreciation for good things. She has the courage to go forward with what she likes to do. As an actor, she did a fabulous job in the film. She was such a pleasure to work with."

The film, which released Friday, also features Mukesh Tiwari and Sanjay Mishra.
