Ashish says, ''While my film DHAMAAL can be categorized under slapstick, my latest release, DADDY COOL, is an intelligent comedy. And that because the film is about the funeral service of mine and Sunil Shetty's (who plays my elder brother) on-screen father. We are obviously sad, but the film looks at the proceedings from a third person's point of view. We have everyday examples of people (who come to express grief) laughing and discussing everything under the sun on such morose occasions, and that is what the movie tries to look at. I'll say that the last ten minutes will make the audience shed a tear or two. In fact, you can take your brains and enjoy this comedy!''
Probe him about DADDY COOL being a remake of DEATH AT A FUNERAL, he clears the air by saying, ''It is not exactly a take off, but the makers have had the decency of buying the remaking rights of DEATH AT A FUNERAL.''
Interesting thoughts from an erudite actor and we will surely take his word and check out this Friday's hot release, DADDY COOL.
