Actor Emraan Hashmi says he felt he had reached saturation point with dark and intense roles in his decade-long film career, and that his forthcoming movie "Ghanchakkar", a comedy entertainer, came as a much-awaited break for him.

"I wanted to do a comedy film for a long time. I had done a lot of intense films and dark roles, but I think that was reaching a saturation point," the 34-year-old said here Wednesday at a promotional even for "Ghanchakkar".

The actor has portrayaed intense roles in almost all his films, including "Murder", "Zeher", "Kalyug", "Gangster - A Love Story", "Jannat", "Raaz - The Mystery Continues", "Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai", "Jannat 2" and "Shanghai".

So, "Ghanchakkar" seemed like a whiff of fresh air.

"When ('Ghanchakkar' director) Rajkumar Gupta narrated the script to me, I felt that the comedy and the sense of humour is something through which I want to project myself," he added.

Emraan believes "Ghanchakkar" is going to change the way people see comedies.

"It is one of the best scripts I have heard and it is going to change the way we see comedies. Slapstick comedies, I think, have had it's course, people have seen a lot of them and (I guess) let's do something else now," Emraan said.

"This is a new page in comedies, something people have not seen and have been missing out on. I am sure the audience will like it," he added.

Produced by UTV, "Ghanchakkar" is about a Maharashtrian man, essayed by Emraan, and his loud Punjabi housewife, played by Vidya Balan. The film releases June 28.
