Exclusive! Arshad Warsi: I Do Feel That I’ve Not Been Utilised Very Well


ISLAMABAD, December 16 (online): Known for being one of the top funny men in Bollywood, Arshad Warsi believes he has a lot more than just his impeccable comic timing to offer. While we have seen and adored him in comic roles in countless movies, Arshad Warsi is as powerful an actor when it comes to serious films as well. In this exclusive interview with mid-day.com’s Parul Sharma, Warsi opens on life during lockdown, how he believes he’s been under-utilised, and his latest release, Durgamati.
You know you can hold an easy conversation with a celebrity when the first thing you hear is their tinkling laughter when you compliment them. Arshad Warsi’s easygoing nature shone through when he laughingly thanked his interviewer for calling him ‘incredible’, which he quite frankly is.
Then came the million dollar question – how did the lockdown treat him? Arshad Warsi shares, “You know, all the people who have suffered during the lockdown are going to hate me for saying this, I’m sorry, but I had a great time. I enjoyed myself. I loved being home, got to be with my kids. Good food was being cooked, I was chilling and I got to paint again. I was fine.”
