Parineeti Chopra: Comedy is a serious business

Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra who stars in the upcoming film Golmaal Again said friends for life is her takeaway from the movie.

Talking about her experience as the new addition in the team of Golmaal Again, Parineeti said, “First, I was completely star-struck by these guys. There was this bond between them and they understood each other. They knew exactly what to do. On the other hand, I thought that I might just mess this up. I didn’t know what to do. But within 10 minutes, I felt welcome and these people are so mad that I realized why I was cast for this film… because I am like them. I really found friends for life and that is my biggest takeaway from the film.”

Parineeti had a prolong belief of comedy being an easier genre, however, her notion towards comedy changed after working for Golmaal Again, as she found it very challenging to work upon.

“When I used to watch these films, I used to feel comedy is easier. They are just doing comedy, it’s just making people laugh. And dramatic scenes are so much tougher to do. But after Golmaal, now as an actor, I feel those dramatic scenes are easier. But to do this kind of comedy and this kind of film, to speak in a language that keeps the whole country (entertained) is very tough. Now I have realized that as cliched as it sounds, but comedy is a serious business,” she said.

Directed by Rohit Shetty, Golmaal Again is all set to release this Diwali. Apart from Parineeti Chopra, the film also stars Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Kemmu and Tabu.
