The multi-faceted Diljit Dosanjh is busy gearing up for the release of his latest comedy-drama film Good Newwz, and the Phillauri actor is stunned by Akshay Kumar.
He says, “I never get nervous no matter whoever I am working with, but I have been a huge fan of Akshay Kumar. I have seen almost all his films. It was fun working with him; he has such great comic timing.”
Diljit adds that Akki’s comic timing is impeccable. “Nobody can beat Akshay’s comic timing, he has the best comic timing ever. All that I wanted is to learn something from him. He is a perfectionist. I was observing him and learning from him,” he shares.
The actor, known for doing more serious films, says that comedy is not an easy genre to perform in.
“It’s a loud drama, and I have never done a family drama before, so it was fun to get into this space. But trust me, comedy is not an easy space at all. My character is very loud in the film, but I am so opposite to that. I personally feel comedy is not an easy genre at all and it all depends on the situation,” he opines, adding that he took on the film as an attempt to experiment.
“I wanted to experiment as an actor, but I was only doing serious films and I was only offered that kind of roles. So when I was offered this one, I wanted to take the plunge. I am experimenting; let’s see,” he smiles.
Starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh, Good Newwz is a full-fledged family dramedy film produced by Karan Johar.
