Comedy is lighter: Soha Ali Khan

Mumbai, Aug 31 (IANS) Actress Soha Ali Khan, who has featured in films like "Rang De Basanti", "Khoya Khoya Chand" and "Soundtrack", will now be seen in a comical movie, "War Chhod Na Yaar". She says the genre is lighter and also great fun.

"I am doing comedy for the first time and it has been great fun. I have done films where to get into a role, you have to bring back all these depressing memories before a shot. Comedy is much lighter, you can improvise, you can have fun, and you can let yourself go," Soha said in a statement.

"War Chhod Na Yaar", a war comedy, is director Farz Haider's maiden venture. Soha plays a war reporter in the film.

"I really liked the subject and that's why I said yes to Faraz. It was one of the best scripts I have ever read. We all want wars to stop and the most influential medium in India is films. Movies inspire us.

"Faraz has written a script through which he aims to change our mindset and show us what we can do to stop wars," she added.

The movie also features Sharman Joshi and Javed Jaffrey.
