Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - SA­MARTH GOYAL

Ac­tor Ar­shad Warsi (left) says that he prefers do­ing com­edy films over se­ri­ous ones. The 47-year-old ac­tor who has con­firmed that he will be repris­ing the role of Cir­cuit in the third in­stall­ment of the Munna Bhai fran­chise, in­sists that come­dies are the or­der of the day. “Come­dies are a safer bet and pro­duc­ers are more com­fort­able making them. There­fore, more come­dies are be­ing made. Even the se­ri­ous films are get­ting funny now (laughs),” he told us dur­ing a re­cent visit to the Cap­i­tal for the launch of wife Maria Goretti’s book, pre­sented by Bolly Goods. “Peo­ple don’t want to see se­ri­ous cin­ema any­more. They just want to see a fun film, have a good time and get out. Find­ing a se­ri­ous film th­ese days is like find­ing a nee­dle in a haystack,” he says.
