Mumbai, Oct 29 (IANS) Critics are raving about her new film 'Jab We Met', a full-on comedy, but Kareena Kapoor is looking forward to another laughathon 'Phir Golmaal'.

Sharing her joy, Kareena told IANS: 'Although there're lots of comic moments in 'Jab We Met', I've never done a full-on comedy before. Even when I worked with Priyadarshan, who's known for his comedies, I starred in his only serious film, 'Chup Chup Ke', in recent times. And when we did a comedy together ('Hulchul'), I was the only serious character around.


'I guess I didn't have the chance to have fun with my roles before 'Jab We Met'. That's why I'm looking forward to 'Phir Golmaal'. It's my chance to pull out all stops.'

After playing the free-spirited sardarni (Sikh woman) from Bathinda, Punjab, in 'Jab We Met', she's all set to do a comedy in the 'Golmaal - Fun Unlimited' sequel entitled 'Phir Golmaal' where she teams up with Ajay Devgan after the very serious Shakespearean tragedy 'Omkara'

The response to her performance in Imtiaz Ali's romantic comedy 'Jab We Met' has been phenomenal.

'The only other film I've felt so good about in recent times is 'Omkara'. The director Imtiaz Ali has brought out the playful, extroverted side of me. While I was quiet, subdued and withdrawn in 'Omkara', in 'Jab We Met' I'm in my full elements. This character is really close to my heart. I think from my heart and like to speak my mind openly. And what I liked about this role was the amount of fun we had while travelling and shooting.'

The fun quotient shows up in the film.

'I think that enjoyment during shooting has shown up on screen. Everyone who has seen 'Jab We Met' has been appreciative,' said Kareena.

Tell her she looks different these days and she seems surprised. 'Do I look different? It's just that I've become thinner. And I'm happy being myself.'
