Filmmaker cum actor Tigmanshu Dhulia's recent release Milan Talkies saw him play the role of the protagonist's (played by Ali Fazal) father. It is the first time in his directing career that he acted in a film he has directed and now he says, he won't act in the films he directs in the future. In a recent media chitchat, he said: I never wanted to do this role. In the future, I will never do acting and direction hand-in-hand as it's very tough. I wanted someone else to do this role. But the issue was of the dates and everyone was busy. When I was left with no choice, I decided to act in the film. Milan Talkies was the result of his daughter asking him to make pure love stories as she couldn't watch his films because of A rating.
