Actor Vinay Pathak, often seen playing light-hearted characters in films like "Chalo Dilli", "Dasvidaniya", and "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi", says one gets typecast from his or her first film itself.

"In our film industry, from the first film, you get typecast. And this is everywhere. Stereotyping is the most common practice," Vinay told IANS.

But the true challenge lies in doing the job differently, he feels.

"In my case, I have tried to do different characters. They are not all comic roles, they are very strong characters," said the 45-year-old who plays a serious role in his next "Bajatey Raho".

Directed by Shashant Shah, "Bajatey Raho, a revenge comedy, also starring Vishakha Singh, Tusshar Kapoor, Ranvir Shorey and Dolly Ahluwalia, is coming out Friday.

Shooting for the movie in Delhi's winters was "wonderful" for the actor, who also enjoyed collaborating with his old friends Shashant and Ranvir. "Finally, we were coming together to do a film," he added.

After being part of about 40 projects, the actor concludes that comedy comes from situations and not characters.

"I am not playing a deliberate comic character. The comedy comes out of situations. Like even in 'Khosla Ka Ghosla', my character was a real character and had no quirky code of conduct. He was stuck in situations, which created real, poignant and funny situations," he said.

For Vinay, the director's vision is important.

"Executing the script and vision of the director are important... The challenge is to tell the story the way he (director) wants it to be told," he said.
