"Joker" is the most challenging film: Shreyas
By Nanda Das
He has tackled many comic as well as serious roles in his seven-year-old acting career, but Shreyas Talpade says his character in the 3D film "Joker" is the toughest one ever as he is having to sketch it himself.
Directed by Shirish Kunder, the upcoming multi-starrer fantasy-adventure will see the 36-year-old actor playing a character called Babban that has not been written by Kunder in his script.
"My character 'Babban' has got no character sketch in Kunder's script. He just had the name in his mind and asked me to bring out the character in my own way. So, my character is the result of our permutations and combinations of acting on the sets.
"I was the last one to enter the team. It's one of the challenging roles of my life because I am writing my own character. I am playing Akshay Kumar's younger brother in the film," Shreyas told PTI.
The actor is now gearing up for the release of yet another multi-starrer "Housefull 2" which also stars Akshay Kumar, alongwith John Abraham, Riteish Deshmukh, Asin, Jacqueline Fernandez, Zarine Khan, Shazahn Padamsee, Mithun Chakraborty, Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and Boman Irani. Directed by Sajid Khan, the film will hit screens on April 5.
Shreyas, who has appeared in a number of comic multistarrers earlier, like "Golmaal" and "Welcome to Sajjanpur", says he gets his due in such films even though there are a number of such actors. PTI
