Transition from serious to comedy roles deliberate: Shreyas

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Shreyas Talpade, who is all set to tickle the funny bone with three rom-com releasing next year, says his transition from serious to comedy roles is deliberate.

"The directors used to feel that I am good at doing serious roles so it was a kind of deliberate attempt to change the gear. Also, instead of getting typecast it was better to try a different genre. I wanted to prove I can do anything," Shreyas told PTI.

The actor feels through ``Golmaal`` he proved that he can efficiently perform comedy roles as well because prior to this movie he acted only in serious movies like ``Iqbaal`` and ``Dor``.

"I am an actor. I am here to perform. It is important for me to act in every genre. I love comedy, sometimes action and sometimes serious too," he said.

The laughathons he has lined up include debutant director Sai Kabir``s ``Chemistry``, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra``s ``Teen Thay Bhai`` and Sagar Bellary``s ``Hum Tum Aur Shabana``.

"``Chemistry`` is a romantic-comedy with Soha Ali Khan and Tanisha Mukerjee. It shows the chemistry between a boy-next-door and a girl with high ambitions. Then I have ``Teen Thay Bhai``, a comedy film with Om Puri and Deepak Dobriyal. It is about three brothers who hate each other and what happens when they share a night together," Shreyas said.

"`Hum Tum Aur Shabana` is again a rom-com revolving around three characters Tusshar Kapoor, Minissha Lamba and me.
Tusshar and me indulge in a competition of sorts to get Shabana (Minissha)," he added.

"Attempting comedies is not everyone`s cup of tea. It is very tough to carry it off," he added.
