Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, who is gearing up for the release of her upcoming film Bareilly Ki Barfi, has stated that comedy genre is difficult ad she likes to add realistic humour to her films. The lady made her directorial debut with Swara Bhaskar starrer Nil Battey Sannata that was praised by the critics. Bareilly Ki Barfi features Kriti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao in pivotal roles.
"Comedy as a genre is difficult. I don't make slapstick comedy or over the top films. But in films like 'Nil Battey Sannata' or 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' comedy is realistic," said Ashwiny during a media interaction here.
"In real life also we do a lot of things that are funny but to get that out and not make it slapstick is challenging.
I study a lot of people who have their own quirks and then I make it all part of the film."
The film is co-written by her director husband Nitesh Tiwari and Shreyas Jain.
"We have worked cumulatively in terms of how much we can push things, we don't go beyond logic and some things are important to have in the film. But there are times when we do change things. Like if I had to shoot a scene at a particular location but I did not find it right I changed it."
Ashwiny also said that both she and her husband Nitesh were the harshest critics of each other.
Bareilly Ki Barfi is all set to hit the screens on August 18.
