Mumbai, Oct 8 (UNI) Bollywood director Anubhav Sinha, whose last multi-starrer ''Dus'' was a runaway hit in 2005, says he is ''cool working with several stars on a film''.

''Starry lot .... sounds slightly sarcastic. They are stars and they lead their lives in a certain manner and they demand it to be continuously like that. It is not what they demand .... it is how they demand is what makes the difference between a good star and a Starry Sort,'' Mr Anubhav, who is currently shooting for another multi-starrer action thriller ''Cash'', said during a media interaction here.

According to him, freshers are also of two kinds -- easy ones and the difficult ones. ''I have dealt with both the kinds in both the categories. So eventually it boils down to the individual.

Fresher or star, doesn't matter.'' To a question on how he manages a huge star cast, Mr Anubhav said, ''Surprisingly, my first movie was without a single star. Not because I didn't get one. But because I never approached any. And, today, I have released one with four stars, am shooting one with four, and planning one with six. Yes, I agree I do seem to like multi-starrers.

It was never planned. It just happened. Such is life I guess.'' He says he cannot explain how he manages it. ''I don't know yet.

I just work hard and harder and the hardest and, then, if it goes wrong, everyone knows that it was not my fault. It was God's design. And you don't meddle with that,'' the director laughed.

Mr Sinha said he was still honing his skills as a director. ''I have not received any formal training in the art of filmmaking,'' he added.

When asked about ''Cash'', which stars Ajay Devgan, Ritesh Deshmukh, Zayed Khan, Esha Deol and Shamita Shetty, Mr Sinha said, ''Cash is a comic book thriller. It is unrealistically real and realistically unreal. It is fun. It is spectacular. It is a real popcorn movie. My expectation from the movie is that it should be such a huge hit that I don't have to work after this.'' He admitted he is planning a sequel to ''Dus'' in which Sanjay Dutt, Abhishek Bachchan, Zayed Khan, Suneil Shetty are the protagonists. ''Yes, 'Gyarah' has been playing on my mind. Not because of the trend of sequels. But because it is a great business idea plus I have a story too,'' he added.
