After three back-to-back comedies Abhishek Bachchan has decided to stay away from the comedy genre .
He has already 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 kabbaddi 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”.
