Of late, you have been doing films in various genres. How does it feel to return to comedy with Housefull 3?
I feel relieved because it’s a stress-buster. At the same time it is exhausting because comedy is all about doing everything in one take. It was great to come back on the set of Housefull, I have not done any kind of comedy in two years.
While you were known for your comic roles earlier, out of your four releases last year only one was a comedy — Singh Is Bliing. Why is that?
I want to do different things; I don’t want to have a particular image. I don’t want to be called an action hero or a comic hero, or a villain. I just want to keep changing and keep challenging myself.

How different is the third installment of Housefull?
The characters are different but the genre is the same. If you liked part one and two then I am sure you will enjoy part three as well.
Did you have fun working with Abhishek Bachchan again, 14 years after Haan Maine Bhi Pyar Kiya?
He is very good at comedy. His timing in this film too is great; he is a brilliant actor when it comes to comedy. In real life, Abhishek’s humour is akin to English humour, subtle.
