New Delhi, (Agencies): Imtiaz Ali, who has chosen to tell the pending story of his superhit romance drama "Jab We Met" through a TV series rather than a new film, says making sequels is not his cup of tea.

"Dabangg" producer Arbaaz Khan, "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai" filmmaker Milan Luthria and "Housefull" director Sajid Khan recently announced sequels to their respective films. But Imtiaz, who has earlier made films like "Socha Na Tha" and "Love Aaj Kal", says no to sequels.

"Sequels are not for me. I really feel that any kind of movie that I have made has sort of exhausted the script. From a movie point of view, for me as a director, there is no interest left in a story after I have made it," Imtiaz said.

In the meantime, Imtiaz saw some potential in the story of Shahid Kapoor-Kareena Kapoor-starrer "Jab We Met" for the small screen, and has helped in conceptualising STAR Plus' new show "Love You Zindagi".

"TV is a different medium. Films involve a different way of telling a story. The style is very singular and it has a fixed duration. So when you have to do that, you find that a lot of material gets thrown up which cannot find a way into the duration of a film? And, if there is an interest in that material and an opportunity to see it in a serial, why not use it?" he explained.

Imtiaz, who has also directed shows like "Purushetra" and "Imthihaan" in late 1990s before entering Bollywood, will be only lending a helping hand as a "friend" to the show, because he is "scared" to direct a TV show now.

"I have failed before as a director on TV, so I am a little scared...don't know whether I will ever try again. I don't watch TV much but I do know it has progressed to become an industry. Earlier when I was directing TV serials, we were trying to make films on TV, and it wasn't working for me at least.

However, if all goes as per plan, the 39-year-old, known for his unkempt locks and casual style, will do a low-budget travel show after his upcoming movie "Rockstar".

He has no big plans for the show and says he would be content even if the show goes just on YouTube. He would be glad that he could do two things he loves best - "direction and travel"!
