‘Bangistan’ a poker face comedy: Riteish Deshmukh
Mumbai: Actor Riteish Deshmukh, who plays one of the leading roles in “Bangistan”, says that the film is a poker face comedy.
“‘Housefull’, ‘Dhamaal’, ‘Masti’ were physical comedies having slapstick and loud humour but ‘Bangistan’ is poker face,” Riteish told IANS.
“There are a lot of films where there are extraordinary reactions to ordinary situations but in this film, there are extraordinary situations so you have to be ordinary to get the humour out,” he added.
The story of “Bangistan” revolves around two budding terrorists who decide to swap their religion in order to finish the other community. Directed by Karan Anshuman and produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidwani, the film also features Pulkit Samrat.
Riteish is well-known for his comic timing and working with him was definitely an exciting thing for Pulkit.
“In ‘Bangistan’ my character is pretty interesting and I enjoyed playing the part. It is also the first time that I was getting an opportunity to act with Riteish, so I was very excited. The script was very nice and intelligently written. A serious issue has been portrayed in a funny manner in the film,” he said.
The movie is set to release on 31 July.
