Shreyas Tal­pade: I don’t want to move away from com­edy

Asian Journal - - WORLD -

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.
