'I have a long, long way to go'

From Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi to Bhool Bhulaiya, Shiney Ahuja has earned some rave reviews for his intense performances.

Now, we will see a whole new side of Shiney, as an action hero in Hijack, who doesn't mind getting his hands dirty or being hoisted up on a chopper.

Shiney talks to Ameeta Gupta about his first action film, directed by Kunal Shivdasani, and co-starring Esha Deol.

Tell us about Hijack.

It's my first action film. There are great, elaborate action sequences that involve a Boeing 737 and some helicopters. Though Hijack is an action thriller, it is an emotionally driven film. It's about a man, whose daughter is onboard a hijacked aircraft, and how he finds the strength to save her.

How was it working with Esha Deol?

It was wonderful. She is a very talented actress. The industry should make better use of her. She is far more talented and capable than the work we've seen from her uptil now. We haven't seen her complete talent yet.
