While having a chat with IANS, the 66-year-old star also talked about the changed definition of comedy in Hindi cinema. “Yes, definitely (it has changed). The buffoonery which was there was also a variety but the kind of comedy which is coming in now is high and good comedy, which I enjoy doing,” Paresh Rawal said.
