During the promotions of Fukrey 3, actor Pankaj Tripathi who plays ‘Pandit ji’ in the film spoke about the comedy franchise he has been associated with and feels that films that make people laugh are closer to him.
Talking about what makes people love the franchise so much, he said, "I feel relatability. Ten years back when the first part came, it made people laugh so much and like us, the audience has also grown up with the film. They laughed ten years back and got connected with the characters of the film. Also I feel, we don't give the right credit to the comedy films. When you make somebody laugh, you give them the moments of thoughtlessness which meditation gives after years of practice. So, films that make people laugh are closer to them. I feel this is a different way of seeing a comedy film."
Talking about what new the audience can expect this time in the film and his character, Tripathi said, "The character is the same, only the situation is different. Their journey is different. The canvas and scaling of the film is very big this time. There is much more laughter than the previous two installments."
Directed by Mrighdeep Lamba, Fukrey 3 will see ‘Bholi Punjaban’ involved in an election campaign against the boys this time, with Pandit ji being the man behind their operations.
The film features the original cast including Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Richa Chadha, Manjot Singh and Tripathi. It will hit the cinemas on September 28.
