Shreyas Talpade: I don’t want to move away from comedy
He may have started his career with films such as Iqbal and Dil Dosti Etc but Shreyas Talpade seems to have found a niche in comedy, a genre he really enjoys. The actor said though there are drawbacks of being attached to a particular genre, he has no plans to move away from comedy.
“I don’t want to move away from comedy. People interpret that if I take up some serious roles, I won’t do comedy. That is not the case. I am often asked about not doing films like Iqbal. But comedy is something that I really enjoy and I can never get bored of it,” Talpade told PTI in an interview.
Stereotyping is also a form of acceptance, said Talpade. “When you become a little more popular in a particular genre, then you automatically start getting roles that belong to that genre. Typecasting is bound to happen. You do films like ‘Golmaal’ which is watched by the entire country and if your character gets popular, then it’s quite obvious that people relate you with comedy,” he said.
