Tusshar Kapoor who had two back to back releases in Shor In The City and Love U…Mr.Kalakaar was recently live on Bollywood Hungama‘s chat. For all those who missed logging in, here are the excerpts:
Tusshar Kapoor : Hi this is Tusshar only on Bollywood Hungama.com
Aamir : hey tusshar nice to have you here…
Tusshar Kapoor : thank you Aamir
Rupesh : how was it shooting for Shor?
Tusshar Kapoor : Rupesh…awesome. It was fast, organised and I am happy with the results.
Deepali : i didnt get the last scene werent you dead?
Tusshar Kapoor : No Deepali…actually I wasnt dead…it was made to believe that I am dead
Gauri : what bout the entire bomb sequence when you guys wanted to see it blast… what was the reason for it in the film?
Tusshar Kapoor : Gauri…it was meant to actually bring a turning point in my life..
Yashree : hiii tusshar…i really like you in yeh dil
Tusshar Kapoor : Thank you Yashree…that was loong back
ravinder : tusshar ur very good in gollmaal 3
Tusshar Kapoor : thank u ravinder…i have just won the Jeeyo Bollywood award for it for Best actor in a comic role
Shriya : Greetings from all the Mauritian fans
Tusshar Kapoor : Hi Mauritius…hope u enjoyed Shor if u have seen it
Gauri : so kinda like the entire reseruction… to turn a new and more enlightened leaf of life?
Tusshar Kapoor : yes Gauri…thats exactly what was the philosophy behind it.
Aamir : tusshar what about luv u mr kalakar? whats the film like?
Tusshar Kapoor : Aamir…its a romantic film, a family film and a modern film with the typical values that one associates with Rajshri films
Deepali : what bout the bomb scene couldnt the film have done with out it?
Tusshar Kapoor : Deepali…i think people have loved the bomb sequence the most as there is a lot of comedy in it…that is the part where the track takes a turn.
Rupesh : from comedy to now romance… drastic
Tusshar Kapoor : yes rupesh…comedy to edgy serious thriller like Shor and now to Romance in Love U Mr Kalakaar
Gauri : agree there is a lot of comedy bt i think it simply extended the length of the film by 10 mins
Tusshar Kapoor : Gauri…but its so vital to the film that we couldnt edit any more of it.
Yashree : tusshar..any funny experience during the shooting of yeh dil..that you can share wiz us
Tusshar Kapoor : Yashree…I quite hated the making of Yeh Dil…it was a while back and I didnt quite get along with the director…so let bygones be bygones.
Miss. Kalakari : so what was it like shooting with Amrita…
Tusshar Kapoor : Amrita is very detail oriented, gets into the skin of the character so shooting with her is quite motivating for an actor.
Rupesh : tell us more bout mr kalakar and ur role in it pls
Tusshar Kapoor : Rupesh…Love U Mr Kalakaar is a romantic film with subtle message and lots of emotions. I play an artist, a cartoonist whose ambition is to have comic strip in his name in a newspaper.
ravinder : tusshar u think about salmaan s ready movie
Tusshar Kapoor : ravinder…I think it looks very commercial and entertaining…a complete masala film.
Aamir : tusshar ragini mms y didnt u act in it?
Tusshar Kapoor : Aamir…becos I was never offered it and a date flick would work better with newcomers as it adds to the intrigue of the film.
ravinder : how bout u acting in one of ur sisters films??? y havent we seen it yet
Tusshar Kapoor : ravinder…well Shor in the city is her film…the next Balaji film which I am doing is The Dirty Picture
Aamir : what are u doin in the dirty picture?

ravinder : tusshar ur very nice in shoot out at lokhndwala
Tusshar Kapoor : ravinder…thank you…it was a very diff role for me
Gauri : will you also be dancing in dirty picture like naseeruddin and vidya?
Tusshar Kapoor : Gauri…well that has to be still decided as to how the songs will be picturised but I guess there will be a lot of dance sequences
Deepali : whats with the hat tusshar?
