Paresh Rawal blasts ‘vulgar, double-meaning comedy films’.


Actor Paresh Rawal, who will soon be seen in the Coolie No 1 remake with Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan, has said that he hates ‘vulgar and double meaning’ comedy. He said that Coolie No 1 is a ‘family entertainer’.


He said in an interview that Varun is ‘not only a sincere actor’ but a mischievous presence on set, and he was fun to work with. “If my co-star doesn’t react, my comedy will fall flat; if the director doesn’t direct me properly, I’ll fail,” he said, acknowledging the entire crew.

“These days, you can’t tell when a nude scene might show up in a movie, or if there’s going to be bad language,” he said in Hindi, in an interview to Bollywood Hungama. “This is the first family entertainer that audiences can enjoy without worrying about all this. No one will have to leave the room out of embarrassment.”

The actor continued, “To be able to make people laugh in a year like this is very important.” Praising writer Farhad Samji, he said, “He writes economically, and his words are juicy, boisterous and textured.
