Talking about the content of "Table No.21", he said he was apprehensive in the beginning.

"I was a bit scared on Friday. But then people liked the film and word of mouth spread... it is difficult to detach oneself from the film. It has a topical subject and cannot be missed," said the actor who has "shortlisted some scripts".

"They are all sensible. I don't want to do films where I am running around trees and singing songs. The scripts are content-driven," he added.
