"There are a lot of layers for an actor to do, and today if you have seen, the trend of actors doing negative roles, is picking up," Neil said in an interview here. After stepping into the cine world in 2007, the actor has been seen mostly in negative roles like "7 Khoon Maaf", "David" and "Player".

The actor, who has even turned producer by collaborating with Madan Pahliwal of Miraj Group, says he'd like his banner to steer clear from the adult comedy genre.

"I'm not trying to be derogatory to adult comedies, but it is just that it doesn't match some sensibilities. Some people like it as it is a popular genre and it does really well in India also, but Madan and I have decided that the brand stays with its sensibilities," Neil said.

The 33-year-old actor is looking forward to his acting project -- Sooraj R. Barjatya's "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", which has Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor in the lead role.

Neil will play Salman's rebellious younger step brother in the movie."My character is called Ajay Singh and he is a rebel with a cause. He has a reason why he is so rebellious in nature," said the actor, who also uses his singing talent in his films.

After singing the title track of his film "Aa Dekhen Zara", he says "you'll see me singing very soon".
