At a time when comedies are raking in the moolah for filmmakers, comedy king David Dhawan's lighthearted movie Do Knot Disturb wasn't received well at the box office. He laments that the genre is very much undervalued.

"Comedy is very much undervalued in Bollywood. This is because every person today stands up and makes a comedy. People feel it is the easiest to make so everyone is making it. But that's just a perception," Dhawan told IANS.

Released on Oct 2, Do Knot Disturb starred Dhawan's favourite actor Govinda along with Lara Dutta, Sushmita Sen and Riteish Deshmukh.

Some of the big hits made by Dhawan are Shola Aur Shabnam, Saajan Chale Sasural, Deewana Mastana, Biwi No.1, Jodi No.1, Hero No.1 and No Entry.

Dhawan's next will be Hook Ya Crook starring John Abraham, Kay Kay Menon, Shreyas Talpade and Genelia D'Souza.
