Nitesh Tiwari, who struck gold at the box office with ‘Dangal’ last year, is said to be keen on delving into the horror genre.

According to Deccan Chronicle, prior to ‘Dangal’, Tiwari had focused on movies targeting youngsters. He told PTI, “I have one style of writing that is slice of life, closer to life, drama, humour and emotions this is what I usually write. There is lot of potential in this (genre) to explore as story. But I will try and write a horror story also one day, I want to do it.”

He added, “I would want to make a horror film. Though I would love to make all kinds of films. But while making a film I can only make certain kind of films, I can’t make a sci-fi.”

Tiwari’s wife, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari is currently promoting her next ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’.
