Mumbai: Parineeti Chopra was new to “Golmaal Again” but the actor said her cast members made her feel welcome and a part of the team.
The movie, directed by Rohit Shetty, features Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Khemu, Parineeti and Tabu in prominent roles.
The “Ishqzaade” actor said she was completely star-struck by her co-actors.
“There was this bond between them and they understood each other… They knew exactly what to do. As I was new I thought I might just mess this up, I didn’t know what to do.
“But within 10 minutes of being on the sets, I was welcomed. These people are so mad that I realised why I was cast for this film… because I am like them. I really found friends for life and that is my biggest takeaway from the film,” Parineeti told reporters at the Jio MAMI Movie Mela, where the entire “Golmaal Again” team was present.
Shetty is known to be a prankster on the sets but Parineeti said her co-star Ajay Devgn was equally bad. “Ajay and Rohit are the worst and most dangerous people on the sets. They play so many pranks on the sets and you are not allowed to misbehave. I was new and I did not know them that well. I had to be careful and look around.
“Once Rohit sir told me to do something bizzare in terms of a survey. I initially questioned it but he later convinced me to do it and I realised later that they were pulling my leg,” Parineeti said.
“Golmaal Again” is the first full fledged comedy film for Parineeti. The actor said she always thought it was easy until she came onboard this film.
“To do this kind of comedy and this kind of film, to speak in a language that keeps the whole country (entertained) is very tough. Now, I have realised that as cliche as it sounds, comedy is a serious business.
