Sara Ali Khan is all set with her upcoming film “Coolie No 1′ opposite Varun Dhawan, which is a comedy film.
However, recent Hindi comedies have had little to offer its female leads, with stories mostly revolving around the men, who drive the film and its humour.
When asked what her experience – after featuring in two big-scale comedies – has taught her about the space for women in the genre, Khan said she doesn’t compare herself with her co-actors.
“When you’re working with people like Ranveer and Varun, aapki aukat nahin hoti (you are not in a position) to make such comparisons. You’re just thankful that people like Rohit, David sir, Ranveer or Varun are working with you. You just don’t want to compare these things. Screen time doesn’t matter because these people teach and inspire you so much. You are narrating a good story, entertaining people, so who cracked which joke is a battle I don’t want to get into,” she told in an interview.”
She also said while working on a project, her only intention is to make a film better as a collaborative effort.
“You have to own whatever you do. I don’t think it’s about comparison, about women versus men, me versus Ranveer or Varun. It’s a collective experience and energy, which will reflect on a scene and only make the film better. My goal is just that. It won’t be good if I start competing with Ranveer or Varun.”
