No comedy films for Abhishek Bachchan

Since the past few years, Abhishek Bachchan has only done comedy films like ‘Happy New Year’, ‘All Is Well’ and ‘Housefull 3’. However, the actor now wants to stay away from the genre.


According to an entertainment portal, Abhishek said, “It’s time to switch genres for a while. I’ve done three comedies in a row. After ‘Happy New Year’ and ‘All Is Well’, I enjoyed ‘Housefull 3’ to the hilt. But, for now, it’s enough.”

“I am looking at something I have not done so far. I think I’ve done all genres-from slapstick comedies to family dramas. The only thing I haven’t done is horror. And I don’t want to do horror. I don’t like watching horror, so, why would I want the audience to watch me do it?” he added.

Currently, Abhishek is enjoying the success of ‘Housefull 3’. He said, “We all worked so hard on it. All my co-stars Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Boman Irani and my directors Sajid-Farhad were pros at slapstick. I was completely new to the genre. They all guided me throughout the scenes. We had a lot of fun doing this one.”

Though, Abhishek is currently not doing comedy films, he wouldn’t mind starring in the next ‘Housefull’ franchise. “Provided, we come up with a script worth doing,” the actor said.
