Mumbai: Dancer-actor-comedian Jaaved Jaaffrey, who is playing a funny, simple guy in upcoming film 'Double Dhamaal', says that he modeled his character on classic comic character Laurel from the Laurel and Hardy pair.

“I brought whatever I could to the table for my character. I took a little reference from Laurel. I mixed all that and made this character,” Jaaved told.

'Double Dhamaal' is a sequel to 2007 hit film 'Dhamaal'. It has been directed by Indra Kumar and retains the original cast including Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh and Aashish Chaudhary. Mallika Sherawat and Kangna Ranaut have joined them in the film, set for a June 24 release.
