Neha Dhupia tells

Ritujaay Ghosh

on what draws her to comedies and why she's chosing different films these days.



What drew you to a film like

Mithya

?

Well, I'm one of the central characters and I'm cast opposite Naseeruddin Shah.



Ah Naseer, working with him is a lure for any actor?


There's also Rajat (Kapoor). He's one of the few directors I know who can handle a good script.



Rajat Kapoor, Vinay Pathak and Ranvir Shorey are a team now.

Hey, I'm a part of that team too. I recently finished shooting another film with Rajat and Ranvir. I am 24 is a comedy too. I have four releases this year, all of them comedies.



You were earlier slotted as a sex symbol.

By doing so many laugh riots aren't you in danger of being stereotyped as a comedienne now?

I don't think that'll happen since all four films are different.

Mithya

is a comic thriller and I'm playing the villain's moll.

Raat Gayi Baat Gayi

and

I am 24,

both with Rajat and Ranvir, are romantic comedies and deal with relationships.



Sinngh is Kinng

is out-and-out

dhamaal

. There's an untitled Ashtavinayak project as well which is a fun film with a thrill element.



After

Ek Challis ki Last Local

I have been getting some meaty and meaningful roles. Earlier, I had taken a few wrong decisions. You learn from your mistakes.



So is sex and sizzle strictly a no-no now?


I'm open to doing romantic films. But the ones I've been offered recently weren't very interesting.
