Kriti Sanon is in a happy space right now. The actor who started her career with Heropanti in 2014 has an interesting lineup of films over the next couple of years. After giving us the successful Luka Chuppi earlier this year, she will now be seen in two comedy films, back-to-back.
While she is gearing up for the cop spoof film, Arjun Patiala, she is also the lead in Housefull 4 that is scheduled for a Diwali 2019 release. Team Box Office India recently caught up with the diva who spoke to us about her co-stars from Housefull 4, Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh. She said that the actors who have been part of the successful comedy franchise since 2010 have taught her about the nitty-gritty of cracking a comedy film.
“I was recently talking to Riteish during the shoot of Housefull 4. He is fabulous at comedy. He said to me that much like a dance, comedy also involves and depends on rhythms. If you do not respond at the right time or to the right beat, then that scene will not be funny enough for people to laugh at. Riteish is someone who generally knows a lot about comedy. I have also worked with Akshay in Housefull 4. He too knows a lot about comedy and has impeccable comic timing. To pull off a comic scene is difficult but it depends on the situation and a lot of other things. I believe that it is important to make people laugh,” she said.
Housefull 4, a horror-comedy, is based on the theme of reincarnation. Apart from Akshay, Riteish and Kriti, the film also stars Bobby Deol, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Rana Daggubati, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde among others. The film is produced under the banners of Nadiadwala Grandsons Entertainment and Fox Star India.
