Actor Abhay Deol says the female lead of his movie, Happy Bhag Jayegi, Diana Penty is a natural comedian.
“Comedy is all about timing. I think comedy is such that if it’s there in you and if you’re automatically comical, then it comes very naturally. In that sense, comedy is very easy if you’re a natural comic. But if you’re not, then it can be tougher than drama,” Deol said in Mumbai at an event.
Praising Penty, he said: “The good thing with Diana is that she doesn’t think much… She just reacts. So I think she is a natural comic, but she is not aware of it. And that was fun.”
“If I would do something, she would respond accordingly. That’s very important in comedy… That your actors also get each other,” he added.
Happy Bhag Jayegi features Penty as a runaway bride from Punjab.
Penty said: “Comedy is really very difficult and I’m not a natural. But I think it also has to do with the way it’s scripted.”
“I give full credit to director Mudassar Aziz because he really nailed the script in terms of the dialogues and the comic timing. And you have a cast where you put all these boys together… So it automatically just becomes funny. So I didn’t have that much to do,” she added.
Happy Bhag Jayegi also features Ali Fazal, Jimmy Sheirgill and Piyush Mishra. – CINEWS
