Tusshar Kapoor on his new look, being a singleton and more.. with Nilufer Qureshi
Are the highlights in your hair a fashion statement?
No. It's a part of my look in Golmaal Returns in which I play a hairstylist. I've four looks in the film and this is one of them.
I observed my stylist Hakim Aalim for a day at his salon. I saw the way he holds his scissors, how he combs his clients hair and how he looks into details. I will now be getting rid of the streaks. In March for the next schedule, I'll have a new look.
Apparently, in your next home production Khel Khel Mein you play a reporter?
Yes, I play TV crime reporter in the film. The TV show is on the lines of Sansani or Vardaat. I watched a couple of episodes of the shows to get a hang of the way it is done. My character relates to underworld encounters and reports on other crimes too.
Did you do Shootout at Lokhandwala to break away from the comedy slot?
Honestly. I've never planned my career moves. My comic image happened by chance, thanks to Kya Kool Hai Hum. I stepped into the project only after a couple of actors had said no to it. The film did well and then came Golmaal.
I did Shootout.. only because of Apoorva Lakhia's convictions. I was hesitant to do it but he convinced me. Even now I'm doing comedy..
<b1>You are considered an eligible bachelor. So do you intend to remain in that slot?
Let me enjoy it till it lasts. Maybe because I lived on my own during my college days abroad, I' m quite used to being a singleton. I don't feel lonely. Love isn't an off-the-shelf commodity. It's a feeling. When it has to happen it will. I won't fall in love just because I have to.
Do you wear an armlet for a specific reason?
(Laughs) Your paper reported that I was wearing as a cure for insomnia. I've no sleeping disorders, thank you. I don't have health problems either. I know some people wear amulets to cure them of ailments.
I wear it for general health reasons. I don't believe in this as a science. But it hasn't harmed me. (Smiles) The only difference is that it helps me to sleep for an extra hour or two.
