“If my costar doesn’t react, my comedy will fall flat; if the director direct me properly, I’ll fail,” He said while acknowledging the crew.
“These days, you can’t tell when a nude scene might show up in a movie, or if there’s going to be bad language,” he said in Hindi, in an interview to Bollywood Hungama. “This is the first family entertainer that audiences can enjoy without worrying about all this. No one will have to leave the room out of embarrassment.”
The actor continued, “To be able to make people laugh in a year like this is very important.” Praising writer Farhad Samji, he said, “He writes economically, and his words are juicy, boisterous and textured.
“Ideally one should not sacrifice one’s character for the sake of laughter,” he said, talking about his approach to comedy, “I believe in making things effortless. I simply hate vulgar and double-meaning type of comedy, and fortunately I’ve been able to stay away from those films.”
