"Baa Baaa Black Sheep" director Vishwas Paandya says his movie, which released on Friday, combines the two interesting genres of crime and comedy.
He feels it's a new space for the audience to watch.
On the film, the debutant director told IANS: "It is a comedy and thriller.
Anupam Kher's character has a dark secret of being a contract killer, and the story changes once the secret gets unveiled.
"I started writing the story as a dark comedy and then it got into that zone where crime meets comedy.
I think comedy and crime are two interesting genres to combine. "
His idea was to make the story more accessible to the larger audience, and so he chose against making it as a "hardcore dark comedy".
"Baa Baaa Black Sheep" features Anupam, Annu Kapoor, Maniesh Paul and Kay Kay Menon in pivotal roles.
It revolves around the dark secret of a father and his son.
Regarding the cast, Paandya said he wanted to bring on board a melange of "good actors".
"Not that stars are not good actors, but this is my first film.
So, I wanted to set my level high before I collaborate with a big star, because as a director I also have to offer them something big.
My first film is very content - based, " he said, explaining why he didn't go for a "star".
Paandya started his career from television in acting.
He believes that the film industry should nurture more talent in terms of writing original stories.
"This is a good time for writers because cinema is changing and if the story is not offering something new, the presence of stars will not recover a bad film.
That is why I think our film industry should encourage and nurture more writing talents, " said the former actor.
