Actor Saqib Saleem admits he isn’t an excellent author. He says he has been making an attempt to put in writing a secret set for stand-up comedy over the previous 5 years however has by no means been capable of full it.
“For the last five years, I have been trying to write my secret set for stand-up comedy, which I have never been able to complete. It also has to do with the fact that I am not a great writer,” Saqib stated.
The actor’s curiosity in stand-up comedy has elevated these days due to his upcoming position in “Comedy Couple”, a rom-com co-starring Shweta Basu Prasad that’s based mostly in Gurgaon in opposition to the backdrop of the burgeoning stand-up comedy scene within the metropolis.
“Over the past six months, I have been watching a lot of stand-up comedy. First I was watching it in general but then I started watching it for the film and I really enjoy it,” he stated.
He hopes at some point he may have a stand-up particular on his personal, as he has many tales to inform.
“I like Zakhir Khan and Anubhav Bassi and besides them, I love the kind of stuff Vir Das does. I think his writing is solid. I also feel that the stand-up scene in the country has become better and there are a lot more talented people out there,” stated Saqib.
Directed by Nachiket Samant, “Comedy Couple” relies on a narrative by Bikas Mishra, with a screenplay by Raghav Kakkar and Kashyap Kapoor. The movie will drop on Zee5 quickly.
Meanwhile, actress Shweta Basu Prasad tries comedy within the upcoming movie Comedy Couple. The expertise of working in a comedy made her realise each style comes with its allure and challenges.
“Every genre has its charm and challenges. Comedy is challenging because you have to make people laugh and I feel laughing and crying are strong emotions. So, if it is a well-written script half the job is done,” Shweta stated.
As an artist, Shweta Basu Prasad retains sure issues in thoughts. “Also, as a performer, you have to keep in mind the thin line between overdoing and underdoing things. It could be a great joke but if you overdo it, it might not work,” she stated.
