Danish Sait: Have seen more people than films

 Mumbai, Aug 1 (IANS) Actor-comedian Danish Sait says his humour comes from observing real life and people, rather than from films.

"The humour comes from real observation than from movies. I have seen more people than films. I have witnessed more real quarrels than quarrels in movies. My mum had a supermarket, so I have spent a lot of time on the streets observing people," Danish said.

Talking about his favourite films, Danish said: "I have watched ‘Mughal-e-Azam' almost 20 times. My mother had gone to Delhi for angioplasty and we were staying with my aunt, who showed us ‘Mughal-e-Azam' around 20 times. Prithviraj Kapoor's voice wakes me up even now. The movie that is really close to my heart is ‘Andaz Apna Apna'. One of my all-time Kannada favourite is ‘Muthina Haara'. I also loved ‘Om Shanti Om'."

Danish was recently seen in the Kannada comedy "French Biriyani". The action comedy drama stars Danish as Asgar, a Bengaluru auto rickshaw driver, and Sal Yusuf as Simon, who is visiting the country for the first time. Their fates cross under unexpected circumstances. The film released on an OTT platform on July 24.

Danish is excited about his upcoming films.

"The next installment of ‘Humble Politician Nograj' is coming up and I also have a small role in ‘777 Charlie' for which we had gone to Punjab to shoot, and it was a really fun experience," he said during a conversation on IMDb's "On the Scene".
