Actor Shabbir Ahluwalia, known as the small screen's bad boy, is enjoying his new role as producer.

Shabbir's first production venture was "Ganga Kii Dheej" in 2010 and his recent project is "Savitri", a fantasy drama that went on air on Life OK.

"Production is both fun as well as a complex job. When you are an actor, you have a role to play, but as a producer you are responsible for a lot of other things," Shabbir, 33, told IANS.

" 'Savitri' is a fantasy show, a first of its kind. The visuals of the show will be an experience for the viewers. It is a very different show," he claimed.

Is direction on Shabbir's wish list?

"Direction is not happening in the near future. One should take up one thing at a time. Producing is exciting me right now and I haven't thought about directing now. 'Savitri' is keeping me more than busy right now," he said.

As an actor, Shabbir is best known for his negative roles as Rishi Garewal in "Kahiin to Hoga" and Milind Mishra in "Kayamath".

He has also worked in movies. His silver screen debut was with 2007 hit "Shootout at Lokhandwala". He later did "Mission Istaanbul".

When asked about the transition from TV to films, he said: "For me, there has been no transition in terms of acting. The medium does not matter to me. TV and films, I believe, have equal amount of reach in term of viewership."

If the script is exciting, he says, the medium doesn't matter.
