‘I’m not just a co­me­dian’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Ra­j­pal Ya­dav (left), known for his comic per­for­mances in films such as Chup Chup Ke (2006), Hungama (2003), Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003) and Bhool Bhu­laiya (2007), says that he does not want to be type­cast. “Peo­ple call me co­me­dian, but I think I am an en­ter­tainer. I don’t like the ‘com­edy’ tag. I think I have done all kind of roles — neg­a­tive, se­ri­ous and en­ter­tain­ing. I feel lucky to be ac­cepted by the au­di­ence,” says Ra­j­pal.

The 44-year-old feels for­tu­nate to have got the op­por­tu­nity to play in­ter­est­ing roles and work with tal­ented ac­tors. “To­day, op­tions are plenty for ac­tors to choose in­ter­est­ing work. I feel blessed to be here as I am get­ting to do films in var­i­ous lan­guages — Hindi, Pun­jabi, Kan­nada,” he said.

“I get bored easily, so I keep look­ing for in­ter­est­ing things. I am not in a hurry to do films. Whether the role or the film is big or small, doesn’t mat­ter to me. It has to ex­cite me,” he added.
