Pulkit Samrat On Being A Part Of Anees Bazmee’s “Pagalpanti”

Pulkit Samrat, who is known for playing Hunny in the superhit comedy franchise “Fukrey”, will shortly be seen in an out-and-out comic caper “Pagalpanti”, which also features several other actors.

Pulkit Samrat has been a part of several films ever since he made his silver screen debut with Bittoo Boss in 2012. However, it was the superhit comedy film franchise Fukrey which brought him loads of recognition. The actor played the character of Hunny and impressed everyone with his performances in both the instalments of the franchise.

Pulkit Samrat is now gearing up for the release of his next film Pagalpanti which is again in the comedy zone. When asked what led him to be a part of the comedy film, the actor told a popular tabloid, “Every promo or song ends with ‘An Anees Bazmee Film’, and that is what appealed to me. I grew up watching his No Entry (2005) and Welcome (2007) and today, I am a part of his film’s poster. It gives me goosebumps.”

Sharing his experience of working with filmmaker Anees Bazmee, Pulkit Samrat said, “Most senior directors don’t give you a script or a narration personally, but Anees sir sat me down and gave me a proper narration, twice. Once we started shooting, Kriti (Kharbanda) and I were the only new entrants as Anees sir has worked with the rest before. I was intimidated about doing a film with Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Saurabh Shukla and Anees sir. But John and Arshad treated me like a kid brother—covering for me and protecting me, advising and appreciating me. It was an addictive, productive team and none of them made Kriti and me feel like raw, uncooked rice.”

When asked about doing yet another multi-starrer film, Pulkit Samrat said, “As a viewer, while watching a film, I don’t count how many scenes or dialogues an actor had, it’s the impact of the scene that matters. As long as I’m convinced about my part, the length or the genre doesn’t matter. My character, Chandu, thinks he is smart but he is actually dumb.”

Also starring John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz, Kriti Kharbanda, Arshad Warsi and Urvashi Rautela, Pagalpanti is scheduled for its theatrical release on 22nd November, 2019.
