Anees Bazmee reveals Salman Khan and I will work together again, very soon
Over the years, Anees Bazmee has made a name for himself with laugh riots like ‘No Entry’, ‘Singh Is Kinng’, ‘Welcome’ and ‘Ready’ to name a few and he plans to make many more films in the genre. Next up, is the multi-starrer comedy, ‘Pagalpanti’, fronted by John Abraham, Anil Kapoor and Ileana D’cruz with Arshad Warsi, Kriti Kharbanda, Pulkit Samrat, Saurabh Shukla as a part of the ensemble cast. “For me, it has always been about making clean comedies; there is no place for vulgarity and buffoonery in my work. If you have command over your writing, you don’t have to resort to shortcuts like double meaning dialogue to make people laugh; the humour should come out of the situation, even a serious one, like the cliff-hanger climax of Welcome with 25 people hanging on to dear life,” Anees explains.
He made his directorial debut with Ajay Devgn’s action-packed ‘Hulchul’ in 1995. Months away from completing a silver jubilee run, Anees is still an enthusiastic debutant who said pre-release anxiety and insecurity keeps him going.
The upside of that is that while other directors are showcasing John Abraham as an action hero, Anees taps the comic side of the man of steel even in his upcoming ‘Pagalpanti’.
The good-winning-over-bad theme runs through all his films.
And while he is already planning to take ‘Pagalpanti’ forward, Part 2 of No Entry is ready, waiting to be green-lit by producer Boney Kapoor.
