Rajpal Yadav, known for his antics in films like Bhootnath, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, says he doesn't have any plans to move away from his favourite genre.

"I will stick to comedy as along as I can... I'm not allergic to serious role. But comedy is the need of the hour... it works as a pain reliever and as a stress buster," he said.

"Comedy and comic roles should not be taken for granted as big Bollywood stars like Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar are doing comedy," he added.

Rajpal was in the capital Wednesday to promote his film Yeh Mera India with actresses Smilie Suri, Seema Biswas, Sarika Ghatge and Perizad Zorabian.

Releasing on August 28, the film is directed by N. Chandra. It shows what is Mumbaikars' perception about migrants from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh and how majority of the population sees Muslims as terrorists.

"The film is an attempt to explore the real stories behind the headlines flashed on TV channels revolving around violence...," said Chandra.
