Govardhan Asrani - Mastizaade 340x

Govardhan Asrani is an actor most known for his comic roles in years gone by. However, when asked about the genre as it is today, he says it is very vulgar.

According to Hindustan Times, Asrani said, “Earlier we had two types of schools of comedy ��� Bimal Roy school (which was realistic) and Madras school (which was subtle). Bimal Roy never kept comedy out of the story line. Madras comedy was another track but never vulgar. Now, it has come down to terrible stuff. Ab to behad vulgar ho gya hai, bas kapde utarne ki deri hai”.

Asrani was seen in Sunny Leone starrer ‘Mastizaade’ earlier this year which was his first adult comedy. “Mujhe mastizaade main kaam karna pada, mujhe sharam aayi (I had to work in Mastizaade, I felt embarrassed),” said the actor.

When asked why he chose to take up the role int he film, Asrani added, “It was the director, Milap (Zaveri) who I found really energetic initially. Par jab shooting karne pe aye to mujhe laga baap re ye ka hai? I had never spoken such double-meaning dialogues, and it was embarrassing for me.”
