New Delhi: Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is currently gracing the Cannes Film Festival, and is all geared-up for her big release 'Sarbjit' back home. Former beauty queen was recently quizzed over the kinds of films she does and how different or similar is it from hubby Abhishek Bachchan's.
The actress was quoted as saying, “Both Abhishek's film 'Housefull 3' and my film 'Sarbjit' are completely different. As actors, both Abhishek and I thoroughly enjoy this (comedy) kind of genre. We as actors don't do one kind of cinema and this is what we both share in common”.
'Houefull3' has been helmed by Sajid-Farhad, and is scheduled to hit the screen on June 3, 2016. "The fact that it's a such a huge successful franchise ('Housefull 3'), it means it is succeeding in entertaining the audience. I have seen a couple of scenes of 'Housefull 3' as we were dubbing in same area, so Abhishek and Akshay called to see the scenes and it's a laugh riot," Aishwarya added.
"As an actor I have always been open to doing all kinds of cinema. Just as much serious is intense work, I have always said comedy is serious work as well for the artists, writers and director. It is wonderful when that kind of cinema evokes that kind of reaction. It means that they (team) have managed to hit the spot," she said.
"In movies, let's see (referring to comedy film offers), now that you have asked a question so let's see who is listening in terms of offers coming my way," she said.
"It's a genre that is celebrated for what it is...It's out there, in the face, big picturisation for songs, etc. So that's the genre that the audience enjoy thoroughly. We are also audience when we see a film," she said.
In real life, the "Dhoom 2" actress thinks at times people don't get her funny side correctly. "Sometimes people get the humour (she does) and sometimes they don't," she added.
