Switching gears from cop-dramas and vigilante action films, John Abraham will be seen in the comedy Pagalpanti later this year and the actor says he has tried his best to grow in the genre.
Pagalpanti features an ensemble cast which includes Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda, Urvashi Rautela and Saurabh Shukla.
The film reunites John with Anees Bazmee, who also directed the actor’s last comedy, Welcome Back in 2015.
“The last time I was doing comedy was in Welcome Back. In Pagalpanti you’ll see my body language and everything else and you’ll realise it’s not the same John. There will be a visible change,” John told PTI.
The actor said his director was of the view that he has indeed grown in the genre and feels if he can make people laugh, his job is done.
“I’ve tried to improve in the genre by leaps and bounds. That’s what my director told me. I believe it’s very important to improve. Cinema is about entertainment and if I can do a convincing job by making people laugh, its amazing. I am excited for the film,” he added.
The movie is produced by T-Series, Panorama Studios and co-produced by Aditya Chowksey and Sanjeev Joshi. It is scheduled to release on November 8.
