Actress Kriti Sanon says working on comic caper Arjun Patiala was an exciting journey but she doesn’t find comedy an easy genre.

Maddock films is bringing actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh back in uniform, this time with Kriti and actor Varun Sharma, for a laugh riot.
“Arjun Patiala was such an exciting journey. Comedy is not an easy genre, and we have added a twist to it. Diljit and Varun have a great comic timing and it was a constant laugh riot on the set,” Kriti said in a statement.


Dinesh Vijan, who is producing the film with Bhushan Kumar, said, “Diljit will be seen in the uniform but very different from his avatar in his first Hindi film outing, Udta Punjab.
Diljit said, “Arjun Patiala is very quirky. It’s a film that has action, romance and comedy but with a spin on it. It was a blast shooting it and I hope audiences love it as much.”


Varun will be seen as a police official with a sarcastic tongue and an arrogant stride, who goes by the name of Onida Singh. “I’m very excited to see the audience’s reactions as it’s a very special. They’ve given me so much love and appreciation, I want to make sure they have a great time at the theatre,” he said.


The trio has a baddie to contend with as Zeeshan Ayyub steps out of his ‘good friend’ avatar to roam the campus, his hair tied up in a patka, piling up the corpses without batting an eyelid. His character is called School, pronounced in the Punjabi way as Sakool.


“The Rohit Jugraj-directed laugh riot offers plenty of action and dollops of bubble-gum romance. We believe in doing something different every time, and since we have never attempted an out-and-out comedy before, we decided to experiment with one which is more situational than slapstick.”
