Actress Minissha Lamba, who is excited about her upcoming film Bheja Fry 2 views that men have an upper hand when it comes to comedy and not many of the comedy roles are written for women. "I think comedy comes easy for women because right now there are not many roles written for women.. they are mainly men-oriented. It is rightfully so as men can perform variety of jokes that don't look nice on women," Minissha told PTI.
"Like obvious sexual nature or double meaning jokes, it does not look nice when women are cracking it. It works better when a male artist does it," she added. After attempting different genre of films from romance to satire, Minnisha has now tried her hands at comedy with Bheja Fry 2 and Hum Tum Aur Shabana.
Bheja Fry 2 has been directed by Sagar Ballary and is sequel to 2007 hit film. The film revolves around Bharat Bhushan played by actor Vinay Pathak, who cherishes a dream of becoming a singer. "I have seen Bheja Fry earlier. This film is completely independent from the first film and the characters are new. So there was no need to go and watch the first film again," Minissha informed.
The bubbly actress essays the role of Ranjini, an executive producer of a reality show in the film. "My character is the only one who does not get ''Bheja Fried'' by Bharat Bhushan. She sees his innocence and understands him, takes his side when everybody is absolutely nasty with him. He falls in love with her...adores her. But she regards him with patience and considers him as a good friend."
Produced by Mukul Deora, Bheja Fry 2 stars Vinay Pathak, Kay Kay Menon, Minissha, Suresh Menon and Amol Gupte. The film is all set to release tomorrow.
