"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.
