MUMBAI: Actor Saqib Saleem, who has done roles across genres in films, feels comedy is the genre that teaches an actor to live in the moment, because spontaneity is an important element of a comic performance.
Saqib tried comedy in the recent OTT film, “Comedy Couple” that cast him as a stand-up comedian. The Nachiket Samant directorial also featured Shweta Basu Prasad, Rajesh Tailang, and Pooja Bedi.
“One of the most important things I have learned playing a stand-up comedian in ‘Comedy Couple’ is how to live in the moment. I think comedy teaches you, as we keep saying, it is all about timing. When stand-up comedians perform before a live audience, they also interact with them. So, at times, based on the reaction of an audience, one can crack a few more jokes spontaneously.
