Comedy is part of my family’s (he is popular actor-writer Crazy Mohan’s brother) day-to-day living. So I have a natural dislike for horror and soppy films. I remember how I dreaded even going to the rest room after watching Exorcist. I couldn’t get over the fear for almost a week. But later realised more than the action, it was the music that created fear. Similarly, after watching a serious film such as Black (though very well-made), for days together I kept thinking about that little girl. It was disturbing…traumatising. Reality hits you very hard. So I prefer looking at the lighter side of life.
