Tusshar Kapoor not averse to do adult comedies
In his prolific film career, Tusshar Kapoor has played several interesting roles in different genre films with great aplomb. After his mute act in Golmaal series, Tusshar Kapoor’s role in Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 will see him as a character with a slight squint. He went to workshops to get his eye movement right as he didn’t want it to look gimmicky.
Tusshar says, “I have been lucky enough to do roles across genres. In Kya Kool Hain Hum 3, my character is slightly cock-eyed. Not throughout the film but just in certain situations. I play a guy who is looking for true love and how he makes a mess of certain situations. Milap (Zaveri) has written the part and it’s great.”
Along with workshops, Tusshar also practised on the set before shooting with his co-stars. “It won’t be derogatory or offensive to anyone. I don’t want to ridicule anyone so it won’t be in bad taste,” Tusshar explains.
Though his co-star Riteish Deshmukh opted out this time and was replaced by Aftab Shivdasani as he wasn’t comfortable with the subject, Tusshar says he will do whatever roles the audience accepts him in. “I have no qualms being a part of an adult comedy. It is a genre that everyone watches but very few accept that they enjoy. There is double standard at play, but I am accepted and liked by my audience in this genre. So why not? I am sure 30 years later, there will be remakes of adult comedies being made and then people will credit us for having started this trend,” he says.
