Mazher Sayed, currently seen in comedy show "Mrs Pammi Pyarelal", says slapstick comedy sometimes goes over the top, therefore, it is vital for actors to know where to stop.

He himself is so energetic that his director has to restrain him.

"Slapstick does go overboard... but you need to know how to control it," said Mazher.

"The director has to control me as my energy level goes very high. The director is there and does a great job. When you know the character, you know till what meter you need to go," he added.

Various kinds of comedies are being aired on the telly. The actor feels that nowadays "anything that makes people laugh and tickles their funny bones" works with the audience.

"It should be genuine an honest and not too much in your face. There is no formula for humor. It should just make people laugh," he added.

Mazher has been part of the television industry for over a decade and acted in shows like "Kahin Kisi Roz" and some episodes of "Crime Patrol", but "Mrs. Pammi Pyarelal" marks his first stint with comedy.

"I have never done comedy in 13 years. This is the first time. I had a lot of challenges. In the beginning, I was trying to see how the character will react and how I can connect with everyone else," he said.

To get under the skin of his character, Mazher watched a lot of funny movies.

"Initially, it takes a little time to get used to and get under the skin of the character. I watched a lot of comedy films to get into it," he said adding that the show reminded him of "Dekh Bhai Dekh".

"My character is quite bizarre and amazing. It is quite different. I don't think anyone has played this kind of a character before where a man falls in love with another man.

"He is eccentric, he can be mad, crazy and these were the avenues I wanted to explore. The story is also very nice. It reminds me of 'Dekh Bhai Dekh' days. I was an ardent fan of that show," he said.
