‘Be­ing funny isn’t child’s play’

Sunday Tribune - - NEWS -

AC­TRESS Nushrat Bharucha of Pyaar Ka Punch­nama fame has more comedy films lined up, but said they’re not easy to do.

“Comedy ac­tu­ally is quite dif­fi­cult. The tim­ing, the tone, the de­liv­ery and the pre­cise ex­pres­sions are all very cru­cial, es­pe­cially for ac­tresses,” Nushrat said.

“But I’m very com­fort­able with the comedy films that I have done be­cause they have a cer­tain premise and sub­text. I have been play­ing cat­a­lyst sort of roles in the comedy films I’ve done. I love what I do, I love what is be­ing given to me, I am com­fort­able with it and I love the way it has been re­ceived,” added the Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety ac­tress.

Look­ing back at her Bol­ly­wood ca­reer, which started more than a decade ago, she said: “If you come to think of it, it’s been a com­i­cal jour­ney for me.”

“But both Tur­ram Khan and Dream Girl are very dif­fer­ent from the rom­com films I’ve done in the past. Their treat­ments are dif­fer­ent and even within the comedy genre, these films ex­plore dif­fer­ent sub-gen­res. Tur­ram Khan is a so­cial comedy and Dream Girl is a unique yet a hard-core com­mer­cial en­ter­tainer.”

There are a lot of gen­res she wants to do: “I feel it will take time for ev­ery­thing to fall into place – whether it’s scripts, roles, char­ac­ters or writ­ing… with time, I will do other gen­res.”
