After three back-to-back comedies, Abhishek Bachchan has decided to stay away from the comedy genre.
He has already said no to the big comedy franchise Hera Pheri.
“Yes,” he sighs, as he balances out this interview with a meeting with his sports team for the next kabaddi match. “It’s time to switch genres for a while. I’ve done three comedies in a row. After Happy New Year and All Is Well, I enjoyed Housefull 3 to the hilt. But, for now, it’s enough.”
Abhishek is looking at various scripts. “I am looking at something I have not done so far. I think I’ve done all genres-from slapstick comedies to family dramas. The only thing I haven’t done is horror. And I don’t want to do horror. I don’t like watching horror, so, why would I want the audience to watch me do it?”
At the moment, it’s celebration-time at the Bachchans for Housefull 3. Abhishek is joyous at the success. “We all worked so hard on it. All my co-stars Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Boman Irani and my directors Sajid-Farhad were pros at slapstick. I was completely new to the genre. They all guided me throughout the scenes. We had a lot of fun doing this one.”
And although Abhishek is off comedies, he wouldn’t want mind re-visiting the ‘Housefull’ franchise, “Provided, we come up with a script worth doing”.
