Bollywood actor Meezaan Jaffrey who is currently promoting his upcoming comedy flick Hungama 2, which is a sequel to the 2003 hit Hungama. In a recent interaction, Meezaan revealed that he wants to be paired opposite actor Deepika Padukone on screen, if he has to romance an older woman. He also said that he gives more importance to the story of the film rather than these minute details.
Speaking to a news portal, Meezaan spoke on starring opposite an older actor on-screen.
“I think Deepika Padukone for sure. I think I am okay, depending on the character or the role, I don’t think it matters. If I actually had to romance an older woman on screen, I think I would be okay with it, depending on the film and the character. The film is more important, it is more important to think about the story of the film than thinking about these minute details.”
He also added that he would like to be paired opposite Janhvi Kapoor or Tara Sutaria from his generation.
He also spoke about his Hungama 2 movie co-stars Shilpa Shetty and Paresh Rawal.
“Because both of them are so senior, at first I was quite intimidated, I was nervous, I didn’t know how I am going to be addressing them, how I’m going to form a relationship with them, is it only going to be like in front of the camera or if there are going to be conversations behind the camera as well,” he said.
“She (Shilpa Shetty) is extremely sweet and supportive. She is full of life and she brings like this energy and positivity around her when she comes, so automatically, I think, those barriers were broken,” he added.
When asked about how he feels about working on the sequel of such a popular movie as his second film, Meezaan said,
“A little nervous, a little excited. I think I am a bit of both but it’s a good feeling. It’s only my second film, I just have gratitude and I am honoured to be working in this film because it’s such a big name, such a big responsibility, such a big franchise, such a big star cast, such a big director, so all these things, you know, put a sort of burden on your shoulders, but it’s okay, it’s a good thing, it’s a good opportunity and I hope that I make the most of it.”
Meezaan Jaaferi made his Bollywood debut with the film Malaal, will next be seen in Priyadarshan’s Hungama 2, which is a situational comedy also starring Shilpa Shetty, Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav, Pranita Subhash among others.
