Samir Tewari: Arshad Warsi can pull off intense roles with great ease

Post the success of Munna Bhai series, Arshad is mostly seen in funny roles despite the fact that he won lots of critical acclaim for his work in Sehar

Director Samir Tewari has roped in Arshad Warsi for his debut film Mr Joe B Carvalho. He says that the actor is very versatile, but his potential hasn’t been fully utilised yet.

Samir Tewari said in an interview, “Arshad is a great actor. Can you imagine Munna Bhai MBBS without him? He is an incredible actor, but he is the most underrated and unutilised actor. The problem is people tend to get easily typecast in the industry. Arshad can pull off serious and intense roles so well. I have seen his Ishqiya where his role is intense. He is certainly a great actor,” said Tewari.

Meanwhile Samir is confident about Mr Joe B Carvalho, which is coming out on January 3 and also stars Soha Ali Khan. “The comedy is not the same in the film, it’s altogether a different comedy. If the film clicks, then a new genre of comedy will be introduced in Bollywood,” said Tewari.
