New Delhi, March 1 -- Actor Ravi Kishan, whose portrayal of a boxing coach in Anurag Kashyap's Mukkabaaz received a lot of praise, is now gearing up for his first-ever stint in a web series. 
Reacting to Sidharth Malhotra's comments recently on a reality show, where the Aiyaary actor said that talking in Bhojpuri gave him a 'latrine kind of feeling', Ravi, a popular face in Bhojpuri cinema, says, "I don't blame Sidharth. Maine Manoj (Bajpayee, also present) se poochha tha, too much sound thi udhar, kuchh samajh nahin aaya, aur galatfehmi ho gayi. Sidharth said sorry later, so we shouldn't draw out swords over this. One person's comments can't bring down a community or language." 
As part of his contribution towards making Bhojpuri cinema progressive, Ravi is now coming up with a film. 
"It is about a 40-year-old man falling in love with an 18-year old girl. It's a funny story with a painful ending. This film will make the rounds of many film festivals and will be my answer to naysayers." 
"Log abhi bhi kehte hain pichhle teen-chaar saalon mein gandagi hui hai. (People say that the industry has turned dirty in the last three-four years). It's better that I make a movie and try to clean this industry up. Mujhe isey saaf karna hai," adds Ravi.
