EXCLUSIVE: Pulkit Samrat on the success of Fukrey franchise, “I am simply thrilled that all three movies have worked”

en Bollywood News EXCLUSIVE: Pulkit Samrat on the success of Fukrey franchise, “I am simply thrilled that all three movies have worked”

He has been one of the fukras since 2013. And Pulkit Samrat is gung-ho that the third instalment of the franchise, Fukrey 3, which was successful last year, is now being aired on &pictures, for all those missed it, and those who did not but need a revisit.

Fukrey remains unique among the comic franchises of Hindi cinema, as it is the only one in which the story takes off from the earlier part. In other words, it is a true sequel, not one just in spirit (as in the Housefull franchise) or with characters with the same names and traits (as in the Golmaal series).

Said Pulkit when we interact on Zoom, “I am simply thrilled that all the three movies have worked, and the people have given us so much love!”

I reminded him that when we had met for the first Fukrey, he had told me that writer-director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba had culled experiences from his own life in it—of his being chased by dogs, jumping from his college wall and even playing a woman in the local Ram Lila. “Yes, so imagine what all he must have done that has been incorporated in these two sequels!” he said with a laugh. “But Mrigdeep is a great observer of people. He captures them in memories, and then paints us actors to portray them!”

Pulkit stated that the first film had been about creating that world and introducing its characters. “I was Hunny and Varun Sharma was Chucha, and we all know people like those among our friends. I was the jugaadu, street-smart guy. Then we both got introduced to Bholi Punjaban, played by Richa Chadha, Panditji, essayed by Pankaj Tripathi sir, Zafar (Ali Fazal) and Lali (Manjot Singh). We also get the first experience of the terror that Bholi can spread, while admiring her confidence! And Hunny even now keeps them all together, creates problems for them as well as gets them out of crises!”

Are sequels easier or more difficult for him as actor?

“Well, in a sequel, you know your character and how he speaks and behaves,” replied the actor. “But I must add one thing. When you come home in a bad mood, your family instantly knows that something is off with your mood. So now that we have all the love and people have accepted us all like family members, they will immediately catch on if we go even slightly off-track in our characters. I am happy that every single member of our team was working towards one goal—entertainment!”

How was his personal rapport with Richa Chadha? “She is very professional, yet light on sets, which is a tough combination. Her upbringing and education probably make this possible for her!” he raved.

And when is Fukrey 4 coming up? Pulkit merely smiled.
