Mumbai: Actress Soha Ali Khan, who has featured in films like `Rang De Basanti`, `Khoya Khoya Chand` and `Soundtrack`, will now be seen in a comical movie, `War Chhod Na Yaar`. She says the genre is lighter and also great fun.
"I am doing comedy for the first time and it has been great fun. I have done films where to get into a role, you have to bring back all these depressing memories before a shot. Comedy is much lighter, you can improvise, you can have fun, and you can let yourself go," Soha said in a statement.
`War Chhod Na Yaar`, a war comedy, is director Farz Haider`s maiden venture. Soha plays a war reporter in the film.
"I really liked the subject and that`s why I said yes to Faraz. It was one of the best scripts I have ever read. We all want wars to stop and the most influential medium in India is films. Movies inspire us.
"Faraz has written a script through which he aims to change our mindset and show us what we can do to stop wars," she added.
The movie also features Sharman Joshi and Javed Jaffrey.
