Back With Some Laughs
How did you get cast in the sequel of Tere Bin Laden?
Every person wants to do a film and I am very excited I have got an opportunity to play a lead in such a big movie. I remember when I met Abhishek (Sharma, the director) for the first time, it was for some other film, but he asked me to play the lead role in Tere Bin Laden – Dead or Alive.
Tell us about your character.
I am playing a jalebi-maker’s son from Chandni Chowk, Delhi, who wants to be a director and make a big film. So he struggles in Mumbai and starts making a film!
Are you playing a comic role again?
Not only me, but everyone has done comedy and created humour in the film. I think the comedy is not mine; it’s the writers and the director who tells us how to portray it on camera.
Working with actors from the original film
For the first two days of shooting, I felt a bit out of place, they were so well bonded, and had nicknames for each other. I was sidelined. But after that we had a great time. I had a great time shooting for the film, we used to do a lot of masti. Many a time, Abhishek sir would get irritated about it, but Masti masti mein humne picure bana di.
Your views on porn comedy?
Everyone has their own choice. Many people like to see porn comedy and I am not against it. Many people go and watch it but don’t just admit it.
