Recently when asked why comedy films are not celebrated as much as serious drama despite getting a commercial success, Akshay Kumar replied: “It is very difficult to do such physical comedy where one has to keep logic away — physical comedy is especially tough. In his era, Charlie Chaplin used to do it, without dialogues. He used to make us laugh. I tell you, it is the most difficult acting to do. I do not know why this genre is not given due credit. I am trying to find an answer for 30 years. I have even spoken to people who give awards over why comedies are not celebrated. I think they all think it is very easy to do comedy, but as we keep saying, writing and performing any genre of comedy is very difficult.” Anyway, have you liked the film?
