Comedy is not an easy genre: Kriti Sanon
The actor will be next seen in the out and out comedy film, Arjun Patiala
Actress Kriti Sanon says working on the Bollywood comic caper Arjun Patiala was an exciting journey but she doesn't find comedy an easy genre.
Maddock films has roped in actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh, Kriti Sanon and Varun Sharma, for this comedy film.
"Arjun Patiala was such an exciting journey. Comedy is not an easy genre, and we have added a twist to it. Diljit and Varun have a great comic timing and it was a constant laugh riot on the set," says Kriti.
Dinesh Vijan, who is producing the film with Bhushan Kumar, says, "Diljit will be seen in the uniform but very different from his avatar in his first Hindi film outing, Udta Punjab'. This 'police wallah' is a laugh a minute character with swag."
Diljit says, Arjun Patiala is very quirky. It's a film that has action, romance and comedy but with a spin on it. It was a blast shooting it and I hope audiences love it as much."
Varun will be seen as a police officer with a sarcastic tongue and an arrogant stride, who goes by the name of Onida Singh.
"I'm very excited to see the audience's reactions as it's a very special role for me. They've given me so much love and appreciation, I want to make sure they have a great time at the theatre," says Varun.
Zeeshan Ayyub who usually plays the friend of the hero is the antagonist of this film. His character is called School, pronounced in the Punjabi way as Sakool.
"The Rohit Jugraj-directed laugh riot offers plenty of action and romance. We believe in doing something different every time, and since we have never attempted an out-and-out comedy before, we decided to experiment with one which is more situational than slapstick. If this film works, we would be happy to spin a franchise with characters Arjun, Onida and Ritu returning as the principal players. We already have an idea for a part 2 and like Golmaal and Fukrey, Arjun will be back with a Patiala peg every couple of years," says Vijan.
The film is scheduled to hit the theatres on September 14.
