Tusshar Kapoor doesn’t know if he’ll be part of the Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai sequel, since the script is still being developed. “Let’s see,” he shrugs. But he is definitely playing one of the two leads in another home production, Kya Super Kool Hain Hum, along with Riteish Deshmukh.
“The title says Super Kool, but I say super hot,” he says, adding, “Compared to Part 1, the sequel will be classier and won’t just cater to the frontbenchers, but attempt to rope in the multiplex crowd too since cinema has changed in the six years since Kya Kool Hain Hum (2005) released.” One thing he’s clear about: “The film will be a sex comedy and the humour will be below-the-belt so to say because that’s what makes the movie a ‘kool’ brand.
But the packaging will be toned down and it will be designed for a more universal audience.” Tusshar points out that even Delhi Belly, which released recently, was a crazy caper that broke a lot of taboos. Yet, being a well-crafted film, it appealed not just to the young crowd, but to the older generation as well. Remind him that the original film, despite its ‘kool’ tag, didn’t go down well with the critics, with one in particular insisting that it didn’t deserve even half a star and Tusshar retorts, “I respect critics and believe they are entitled to their opinions.
Everyone doesn’t have to like every film we do. But in the case of that one critic, well, he went on to make films too, and considering what he came up with, I don’t take his views seriously. Lets see who likes the sequel and who doesn’t.” In the film, Tusshar plays a wannabe actor who does odd jobs including starring in ads for perfect abs, gym machines and must-try diets on TV post midnight. Says Tusshar, “This guy has a great physique which is why I’ve been working out a lot.” So, will Kool 2 finally help him shrug off his good boy image and get naughty? He grins, “I think I already did that with Kya Kool Hain Hum. With this one I will only get naughtier.”
