Sex comedies don't work for Soumik Sen
Posted on Feb 18 2014 | IANS
Mumbai, Feb 18 : Filmmaker Soumik Sen, whose debut film "Gulaab Gang" is yet to release, has already developed a few scripts for his upcoming projects, but one genre he doesn't wish to experiment with is a sex comedy.
Post "Gulaab Gang", Sen is likely to make a biopic, a comedy and a thriller, but a sex comedy is a no-no.
"I will not direct an adult comedy. That doesn't work for me. I don't have anything against such films, but I don't have anything as such in mind," Sen told IANS.
"There is an audience for everything, but I would never want to see my name as a director of 'Grand Masti'. I have serious issues about people making rape jokes," he added.
He believes filmmakers must be more responsible.
"Yes, I look down upon 'Grand Masti', but not on 'Delhi Belly'. I loved 'Delhi Belly'. As filmmakers, there is a line which we can draw and that's the line I will not cross," he said.
Sen's second film will be a biopic on late magician P.C. Sorcar.
"Besides, this I am trying to develop a comedy film with a supernatural element and a thriller love story," he said.
