Action is challenging: Tusshar Kapoor

Indo Asian News Service

Mumbai, Oct 8 (IANS) Actor Tusshar Kapoor, who has mostly dabbled in comedy films, including the popular "Golmaal" series, believes that a shift to action with "Shootout at Wadala" is a big challenge for him.

"I have not done too much action, so 'Shootout At Wadala' will be another big challenge for me and it will be interesting for me to see how the audiences accept me in that role," the 36-year-old said here in an interview.

Tusshar is known for playing a mute character in the "Golmaal" series. But he considers an action-based role to be tougher.

"More than playing a mute character, I think doing an out-and-out action-oriented role is a bigger change from what I have done, and a shocker for the audiences," he added.

However, Tusshar is open to diverse roles and something even akin to "Barfi!".

"It depends on the kind of offers that I get. Let's see, I can't predict the future, so I hope I get challenging roles like 'Golmaal', like 'Barfi!' and get to play such diverse characters," Tusshar said.

Being directed by Sanjay Gupta, "Shootout at Wadala" is slated to release in May 2013.
