Actress Neha Dhupia may have proven her comic skills time and again on the big screen, but she feels that doing comedy is one of the most difficult things.
"Comedy is a serious business. It doesn't come easily. I think action and romance and any other genre is far easier than comedy. Comedy is one of the most difficult genres...it is difficult to entertain audience," Neha told PTI.
"Comedy is all about timing not only yours but of others as well. I think one needs to have inherent funny bone," she said.
After tickling the funny bone of the audience in films like 'Chup Chup Ke', 'Kyaa Kool Hain Hum', 'Phas Gaya Re Obama' and others, Neha is now all set to judge a TV show Nautanki- The Comedy Theatre.
"I have done comedy films and I am happy they have been appreciated. I had a great time while doing comedy films," Neha said.
The 32-year-old is making her debut on small screen as she would be appearing along with actor Tusshar Kapoor on a reality show. She will be acting as a judge in 'Nautanki – The Comedy Theatre ' on Colors channel.
"I don't know if it is early or late to enter TV. I feel if the opportunity is right you should do it. The format of the show is too good. I always wanted to do television. TV has a huge reach and it is at par with films if not bigger," Neha said.
On the film front, she will be seen in Karan Johar's home production film 'Unglee' alongside Emraan Hashmi, Sanjay Dutt and others. She will make her debut in a Punjabi film 'Rangeeley' with Jimmy Shergill. Both the films are scheduled to release this year.
