In no dystopian world can Saqib Saleem fall short of people fawning over his looks. Yet the model-turn-actor, who is actor Huma Qureshis sibling, takes compliment on his appearance lightly. I flatted that you think I look good, he say, over phone from Mumbai. Comment crops up because of his upcoming film, Comedy Couple, in which Saqib plays one half of a stand-up comedy act alongside co-star Shweta Basu Prasad: reason being the commonly-held belief that comic role isnt strongest suit for good-looking male actors. Saqib disagree. Akshay Kumar, in his 50s, is one of the hottest men around, and the best in comedy. So, I dont think it is true but yes, as a genre, comedy is entirely different from action films. Timing is crucial in Comedy, he say, and uses soccer metaphor to elaborate: Action scenes are like set-pieces, whereas in Comedy, you need to add to what you have been provided with and create something else. He add: I consider myself closer to the guy I play in Comedy Couple.

Direct by Nachiket Samant, film is produced by Yoodlee Films, movie production arm of Saregama India. The film was shot post relaxation of lockdown restrictions in Mumbai and in Comedy clubs of Gurugram. To get their timing right, actors and director hold workshop for 10 days. It was important to get stand-up act in Film right. Because I say half joke and she complete it, he say. Saqib then go to work on his standup set. I watch a lot of stand-up Comedy while prepping, and I realise that the most important thing a comic needs is storytelling ability. He is able to create an environment where people start laughing because, at some level, they share their personal stories. So we use a workshop to craft standup material for our film by using personal stories and anecdotes, he add. However, shooting a stand-up set within Film during a pandemic comes with its challenges. Restrictions meant we couldnt shoot with the audience. So we shot them separately. The difficult part was to understand where the director wanted his edits portions, where he wanted laughter or just chuckle, and then to preempt those emotions in my head before performing, he remarks. Saqib calls Comedy Couple's screenplay progressive and it is one reason why jokes in film also take on intolerance in society. Even if you are offended by something, say Saqib, way you express your opinion is important. It should not be by way of threat. We may be a democracy but I feel we dont understand what freedom of speech and expression means.
