‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ Director Explains Why Horror Comedies Are Getting Popular

New Delhi, May 22

Filmmaker Anees Bazmee, who is currently enjoying the success of his latest release ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, a horror comedy, has spoken candidly about the difficulty of working in a genre like comedy and how it was once frowned upon. .

Speaking to IANS about the genre being one of the most difficult for actors and filmmakers, Bazmee, who has given blockbusters such as ‘No Entry’, ‘Welcome’, ‘Singh Is Kinng’, ‘Ready’ and ‘Mubarakan’ , said: “It’s true because people have forgotten to laugh and to make them laugh is very difficult because other emotions can be foreseen, but a comedy is not that, it is very difficult.

“I’ve written so many movies, but I still think acting is the hardest job. The timing, the mood has to be right, and the planning is hard.” The filmmaker, who worked with Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani and Tabu in his latest directing, shared that many “big” stars have also analyzed that the genre is difficult.

“Slowly, gradually, a lot of great people started to analyze that what seemed simple isn’t so easy and they respect because the comedy before was little looked down upon more than three years ago and it’s no longer like that.” With a series of horror comedies released one after another such as “Stree”, “Roohi”, “Bhoot Police”, “Phone Bhoot”, “Atithi Bhooto Bhava”, Bazmee has decoded the reason for the popularity of the kind.

“If we talk about horror, somewhere our whole childhood is tied to it. We’ve heard stories from people, so somewhere in our minds it sticks and if someone makes a movie like that, then people like it. that.” Yet the filmmaker doesn’t mince words when he says he doesn’t “believe in any genre”.

“I don’t believe in any genre, in the sense that that particular genre works. We should do that. I’m going to be very honest when I was making this movie, I didn’t think like that. I only make a movie when it hits a sensitive chord with me, whether in any genre.

“I’ve done romantic movies, comedies, suspense thrillers, I’ve never done a horror movie and I thought I should. It’ll be fun and I did.” IANS
