Mumbai, March 22 Actor Shreyas Talpade, who made a mark in “Iqbal” by playing a deaf-and-mute boy who dreams of becoming a cricketer, says it is an achievement for him to move on to comedies after doing the critically acclaimed issue-based film.
“I started with ‘Iqbal’ and I developed an image of a serious actor. I remember, couple of directors said that I couldn’t do comedy. I took that as a challenge. I guess coming from there and doing only comedies, I consider it an achievement,” the 36-year-old said here in an interview.
Shreyas featured in fun films like “Apna Sapna Money Money”, “Welcome To Sajjanpur”, “Golmaal Returns”, “Golmaal 3″ and “Hum Tum Shabana”. Now he will be seen in another comedy, “Housefull 2″, coming out April 5.
He says right comic timing is a serious business.
“It is really difficult to make people laugh genuinely. Comedy, when not done in a right way, can land into buffoonery, which people do not like. If you don’t do it seriously, then it can go wrong,” said Shreyas who will also be seen in Shirish Kunder’s “Joker”.
