For the longest time, Tusshar’s dumb act in the super-successful Golmaal franchise dominated his roster.
Now the erotic The Dirty Picture, where he too had some raunchy scenes with Vidya Balan has taken over. Though TDP was quintessentially Vidya’s film, it has also opened the floodgates for this star-son who is being given a variety; from comedy to action to choose from.
Is it true that post TDP you’ve been offered a lot of erotic thrillers? Yes, that’s true! But I am not sticking by that. I will not accept this genre unless it truly excites me. The Dirty Picture was a path-breaker. The script of my next erotic film has to be either better than TDP or at least as good it. I have got a lot of offers for serious films too.
Because of Shor In The City? Yes! Shor In the city is definitely a feather in my cap. It does feel nice when people recognize your efforts. It is like a reward for all the effort you put in. But I don’t want to get stuck in a rut of doing just one genre of movies. I’m not in a hurry and cash in. For me the challenge lies in doing something different all the time.
Is that why you’re dabbling in action films now? It is an exciting space for me to be in! It also gives me a chance to work with new people. For instance, in Bhaiyyaji Superhit that is an action comedy directed by Neeraj Pathak, I share screen space with Sunny Deol and Arshad Warsi. There’s also Shootout At Wadala that I’m completely charged about. It is a hardcore action drama flick. I was a part of Shootout At Lokhandwala and that had worked at the box office. Being a part of Shootout At Wadala was a natural progress. I’m glad Sanjay Gupta offered me the film. As I said earlier variety is the key.
