´Sunday has turned out to be far better than my expectations!´ - Rohit Shetty

After the runaway success of Golmaal, director Rohit Shetty is now not only busy shooting for its sequel Golmaal Returns, but also waiting to hit the screen in a big way with his latest venture Sunday. The film is a blend of comedy and thriller and presented in an altogether new way.

First of all, please tell us something about the title.

In fact, everyone is asking me the same question. It has been titled Sunday because the story of the film is based on a Sunday. When we sat down to keep the title of the film, we were at a loss. We neither wanted to project it as a dark film, nor as a slapstick comedy. At the same time, we did not want people to assume the film to be a hardcore action film. Thus, we settled on the name Sunday.

What was your experience doing Sunday?

Believe me; the film has turned out to be far better than my expectations. I have had so many good actors in the film that my experience has been a marvelous one. All the actors Ajay Devgan, Ayesha Takia, Arshad Warsi and Irfaan Khan have performed extremely well in this film. Everyone has put their lives into their respective roles.

These days too many comedy films are being made in Bollywood. Your comments.

All that I can say about my film is that this is not a comedy film like the others, but there is a blend of thrills and a bit of action too. While watching my films the audience will not just be laughing, but also thinking about what will happen next. Thus, my films present two different aspects and cannot be called slapstick comedies, but terrific humors.

How was it working with such a big multi star cast?

In this film, Ajay is portraying a corrupt police office that does not talk about the system, but about bribery. When I first narrated the role to Ajay, he immediately agreed to work in the film. Similarly, Arshad, who has a very good understanding of comedy and he has proved this again in Sunday, is doing a role of an intelligent cab driver. Irfaan is a surprise package in this film and he is doing the role of a struggling actor who is idiotic, but cute too. On the other hand, Ayesha has done a wonderful role in this film; just keep an eye on her performance.

A note on future projects.

I'm also doing Golmaal Returns. In the first Golmaal, we saw four heroes (Ajay Devgan, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Sharman Joshi) running around one girl: Rimi Sen. Golmaal Returns there will be four heroes and four heroines, so double the adventure!
