Actress Soha Ali Khan believes that her upcoming film "War Chhod Na Yaar" has the potential to have an impact on the public just like her 2006 film "Rang De Basanti" did.

"We hope that when the audiences leave the theatre, they will not just talk but also do something. Like people accepted the message of 'Rang De Basanti' and actually took to roads to protest. We feel this film also has similar potential," Soha said here Tuesday.

"There is a very beautiful message. The war does not benefit us and the film will tell you whom does it benefit and it will also tell you how to stop the war," she added.

The 34-year-old says that the war-comedy is a very realistically shot film.

"It is realistic cinema. We haven't used lights for night scenes, instead all the lighting was of torches. It was very good," she said.

"War..." also stars Javed Jaffrey, Sharman Joshi and Sanjay Mishra. Soha enjoys doing comedy films more than the serious ones and says doing comedy in the presence of such stars was very easy.

"It was interesting because for a serious film you have to stay in the mood, sit in your van alone. But in a comedy film you can interact with everyone on the sets, you don't need to concentrate much, just learn your lines," she said.

"When you have such great comic actors like Javed Jaffrey, Sanjay Mishra and Sharman, it becomes very easy because half the acting is reacting. So, I enjoyed and one month just flew by," added Soha who plays a journalist in the film.

Directed by debutant Faraz Haider, "War Chhod Na Yaar" hits theatres Oct 11.
