Laugh along! Ranvir Shorey decides to go back to his roots
Ranvir Shorey says he consciously decided to stay away from serious roles when he realised that people enjoy lighthearted content more.
Ranvir Shorey has consciously decided to stay away from dark, serious roles. He feels people enjoy light-hearted content more. The new Disney+Hotstar dramedy, PariWar, sees him reunite with Bheja Fry (2007) director Sagar Ballary.
"I have decided to go back to my roots as comedy is my home and I live there," says Shorey, who plays the son of a wealthy widower in the family saga. "After a certain point I consciously stayed away from serious roles and projects, not because it didn't work for me but because I realised that people enjoy comedy and lighthearted content over serious and dark shows or films," Ranvir further said.
"Sagar Bellary (director) is a good friend and working with him after Bheja Fry along with such a stellar ensemble cast was something I certainly couldn't turn down," he added.
Talking about the boom of web shows, he said: "It is a great time for artists with so many avenues opening up because of the digital space and I feel that the kind of content will only just keep getting better."
PariWar is currently streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
