Hera Pheri played a major role in career escalation of Akshay Kumar. Along with Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal, he created quite a 'dhamaal' and hasn't looked back ever since. Exit Akshay Kumar and Tusshar Kapoor teams up with Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal in One Two Three.
He does chuckle at the thought of rubbing shoulders with Akshay Kumar if this new 'hera pheri' team clicks. However, he just laughs away the suggestion around getting into snipping the role of his co-stars if he actually gets into the shoes of 'khiladi' and hits big time!
"It's great to be working with senior actors like Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal. While Sunil is a true gentleman, Pareshji is the most easy going co-actor I have worked with", says Tusshar.
Talking about what happens behind the scenes, Tusshar reveals, "Senior actors do sometimes steal your lines. If a director is new, it is even worse as more influential actors take them away in a corner and convince them to get them the best scenes and lines. They are in fact blatant in saying - 'Yeh Line Main Bolungaa'!"
"Thankfully there was none of that in One Two Three. Also, director Ashwani Dhir took all the final decisions. He listened to us but took an eventual call. There was no discomfort in spite of working with so many actors. Even though there are 14 characters in the film, everyone's role was so well defined. No one had any reason to be insecure", remembers Tusshar who went intense last year with Shootout At Lokhandwala and Aggar.
With Tusshar teaming up with Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal, would it be time for a new 'hera pheri' team. "Yup, if the team clicks then why not? Who knows then I too may become Akshay Kumar," says Tusshar light heartedly.
Akshay Kumar? Then would he too be hitting back with a vengeance? He just mentioned that senior and more successful actors have a habit of snipping their co-stars roles. In that case, would he too be following Akshay's footsteps (considering the allegations against him for being an 'unofficial editor' of his films)?
"I am not saying anything; I am just not saying anything at all! No comments", laughs Tusshar uproariously, "I would rather be quite; don't try tricking me into saying anything here!"
