Sushmita plays a bizarre character in `No Problem`: Anil
New Delhi: Sushmita Sen plays a psycho wife out to kill her husband in `No Problem` but actor- producer Anil Kapoor says he was not sure that the actress will be able to do justice to the bizarre role.
Kapoor plays Sushmita`s husband in the movie and the two actors are sharing screen space after a decade. They were last seen together in `Biwi No 1`.
"I thought that this entire split personality thing about Sushmita`s character was a little bizarre. There aren`t many comedies where you hear about a wife trying to kill her husband. In `No Problem`, her mental disorder makes her all violent and physical," says Kapoor.
While in `Biwi No. 1`, his character had conspired along with Karisma Kapoor to make Sushmita Sen`s life miserable, it is the other way round in `No Problem` with Sushmita ready to kill him at any given opportunity.
"She gets into such a state because before marriage, she thought of me as a hero, only to realise later that I am actually a zero. She bashes me up every now and then. But initially, I had to convince myself that such scenes would work fine for the movie," Kapoor added.
The actor said Bipasha Basu and Lara Dutta were in the race for the role but director Anees Bazmi convinced him to cast Sushmita.
"There were number of names that were thought of for a woman to play a lead opposite me. We thought of Lara (Dutta) as well as Bipasha (Basu) but Anees was convinced that Sushmita would suit the role best. He insisted that she had to be the final choice. I too was convinced eventually and this is how Sushmita came in."
Another actress who didn`t require much convincing was Kangna Ranaut. Known for playing serious roles that have mostly shown her as edgy hysterical character, Kangna was game to do the role of a girl who believes that she is the most beautiful girl on the planet.
Sanjay Dutt and Akshaye Khanna are the other two leading men.
After having worked with Bazmee in two hits `No Entry` and `Welcome`, Kapoor is confident that they will be lucky third time with `No Problem`.
Also starring Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal and Neetu Chandra, `No Problem` releases all over on December 10.
