Anees Bazmee: Comedy is the need of the hour

Anees Bazmee takes over from Priyadarshan as the director for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, sequel of the supernatural comedy starring Kartik Aaryan. Bazmee has a spate of hit comedies to his credit. From Welcome and No Entry to Singh is Kinng… the director knows how to tickle your funny bone. We asked Bazmee, if comedy was his favourite genre as well.
He told Bombay Times, “I have made other genres like Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha (Ajay Devgn-Kajol, 1998) which was a love story or Deewangee (2002), which was a crime thriller but Meri pehchaan yeh hai ke main comedy films banata hu. And it’s inevitable. I have directed a few and written around 30-40 comedy films like Raja Babu, Deewana Mastana and Aankhen (1993). People still remember these films so your name tends to get synonymous with the genre. Comedy is my forte. I not only enjoy making but also watching comedy films. I personally feel it’s the need of the hour, given the grim times. It gives me a sense of deeper satisfaction that I could make someone laugh. It’s probably the most precious thing to achieve.”

He elaborated, “Aaj kal log hamesha tension mein hotay hai, pareshan hai, dukhi hai. I look around and feel log hasna bhool gaye hai. If my film can make them forget about their worries for even 2 hours, I consider myself fortunate. Zindagi bohot Chhoti hai aur haste hue guzarni chahiye. Even on set, you will never find me all serious. My laughter is the loudest and it’s all picnic like vibe. I prefer that kind of atmosphere on my set — positive and lighthearted.”
