Not everyone can enjoy doing an entire film without a single dialogue. But Tusshar Kapoor, who has been playing a mute character in the funny Golmaal series, says it has never bothered him.
'I never felt that I don't have dialogues in the film. The character is known today because it is mute; otherwise it would have been any other character. It is there throughout the film in most important scenes. So I never felt the need for anything else,' said Tusshar.
Tusshar, who added comic relief to the first instalment of Golmaal in 2006 as Lucky, did an extension of the character in the 2008 film Golmaal Returns, which was again a blockbuster.
Now with the second sequel Golmaal 3 slated to hit screens Nov 5, the actor will continue with his mute act. The film also stars Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Kunal Khemu, Shreyas Talpade and Arshad Warsi.
So was he always fine with doing a character who wouldn't have dialogues in the film?
'It feels great that my character has been so well received. When initially this role was offered to me, I was sceptical because it was a mute character, but it worked and the risk I took helped in the bargain,' revealed Tusshar.
Throwing light on the facet of his character in this part of the film series, the 33-year-old said: 'This time around, along with the lovable facet of my character, you will also see a little roughness and inner aggressiveness in the character.'
Tusshar also revealed the USP of Golmaal 3.
'The USP of this film is that it has the USP of the first two films. The emotion-based character comedy of the first and slapstick comedy of the second,' he said.
The actor, who has been part of films like Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai, Kucch To Hai, Gayab, Kyaa Kool Hai Hum, Shootout at Lokhandwala and Life Partner, has always been more into comedies and says he thoroughly enjoys them.
'I really enjoy comedy and I am very comfortable doing it, but that doesn't mean I don't rehearse for it. To get into the skin of the character, that is very important. So I rehearse well, work hard on it, but because I enjoy it, I don't mind going an extra mile,' said Tusshar.
In the future, the actor, who is the son of yesteryear actor Jeetendra and brother of TV soap queen Ekta Kapoor, will be seen in films like Love You Mr.Kalakaar, Hum, Tum and Shabana, Shor and Run Bhola.
