Having essayed the role of demure Ramakanth in The Dirty Picture, Tusshar Kapoor may have come into own with Golmaal series and now The Dirty Picture but the fact is that he was commended for his work even in Shootout at Lokhandwala and Khakee.

While he is readying for Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout at Wadala now,  Tusshar was in town to promote his latest flick, Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum, Metrolife caught up with the actor for a têtê-a-têtê . The excitement for the movie is palpable in Tusshar’s voice.

“This time it is bigger, better, bolder and more adult. It is not a continuation but a new film in the series of Kya Kool Hai Hum (KKHH).”

After a gap of seven years Tusshar and his reel life bosom buddy Ritesh Deshmukh will be seen in snazzy roles, mouthing explicit, dual meaning dialogues. Is it intentional? “No, we have tried to make a good screenplay with a good story and characters. The naughtiness and bold humor is situational. It is not going to be forced in your face.”

Tusshar feels that the Indian audience today is more receptive and will enjoy a film like Kyaa Super Cool Hain Hum. “Films like Delhi Belly have brought about exposure.
Compared to 2005, today, I think the genre is more palatable for audiences. Earlier, parents and kids had reservations about the language in the film and over-the-the-top violence but now they don’t mind watching such a film.”

His chemistry with Ritesh has been widely appreciated. How do they keep it so fresh with every film? “There is a tuning between us. We have an understanding while working together. That camara­d­e­rie shows up on screen. There is no space for egos and negativity in our friendship.”

Despite having a superstar father and easily the most successful television producer for a sister, Tusshar has managed to crave his own niche. How tough was it? “Ekta and I have been very lucky to be part of successful films but I have not faced any problem while tryi­ng to create a place for myself in the industry. I am a self-made man and prefer keeping my family and professional life separate.” Having been part of both action and comic films, which roles does he aspire to now? “There is a Tamil horror film Kanchana, in which the protagonist is possessed by a gh­o­st. I would love to play such a character.”

The actor’s fondest memories of Delhi is that of coming with his parents to Appu Ghar and watching Sound and Light Show at Red Fort. A lot has changed since then,” he smiles.
