Rajpal Yadav would like to portray former PM Lal Bahadur Shastri

NEW DELHI: Actor Rajpal Yadav, who has acted in about 150 films so far of which majority were comedy, said he would love to portray Lal Bahadur Shastri if given the chance.

Yadav denied that he played in meaningless comedies, adding that Indian films in general always have a message to convey even if it is a comedy film. He also said he had played negative roles in around 20 films.

Yadav was in the capital with actors Neha Pawar and Sanjana Singh, and producer Bharat Bansal in connection with his latest film ?Thoda Lutf Thoda Ishq? releasing tomorrow.

Speaking specifically about his forthcoming film, he said the message was that humans attempt too many things at the same time instead of settling down to something and taking it seriously.

He described the actor as a horse on whom the director rides to steer him to a particular direction.

He was happy that the film was shot in Uttar Pradesh. This was not merely because he belongs to that state, but he felt that the state had a lot to offer to filmmakers and the state government was also offering help in this.

Both Neha Pawar and Sanjana Singh said they had felt nervous initially working with Yadav, but he soon put them at ease.

Pawar said, ?This is a comedy film and it was really great working with Rajpal Yadav.?

Singh shared an incident during the shoot saying, ?When I gave a good shot, Rajpal asked everyone to clap for me.?

Bansal said people do not tend to take Yadav seriously but he not only teaches values to his friends in the film, but also taught a lot to his accompanying crew during the shooting of the film.

The film has been directed by Sachin Gupta and also stars Hitesh Tejwani, Sanjay Mishra, Rakesh Bedi, and Bhavita Anand. The music is by Vikram Khajuria.
