New Delhi: Shot to fame for his comic timing in Golmaal trilogy, Tusshar Kapoor will be seen in an entirely new avatar in his upcoming release ‘Shor in the City’.

"I have always played those positive naughty loveable characters in most of my films. This is the first time ever that I am playing an edgy character,” said the 34-year-old actor.

Comparing his role of ‘In shootout at Lokhandwala’ to ‘Shor in the City’, the actor said he was more wild and furious in the former film.

Kapoor insisted that his character displays a humane side to him as well due to the fact that he is playing a married man.

"I am married to the character played by Radhika Apte which means there is a slight romantic angle as well. Moreover there is a touch of humour too though in its own unique way," said Tusshar.

The Raj Nidimoru-directed film has a gangster backdrop to it and is a thriller in the offing. "There are three stories in the film but they are running concurrently. Also, they are not totally connected; they are parallel to each other," said Tusshar.

The film is his home production and despite being the sole recognizable face in the film, Tusshar said he is one amongst the many parallel leads in the film.

The films' promo also shows that the focus is not just on Tusshar but also other men like Sendhil Ramamurthy, Nikhil Dwivedi and Pitobash Tripathy.

"Yes, and that's because we all are an equal part of this noise (shor)," laughed Tusshar.

'Shor in the City' releases all over on April 28. The film is co-directed by Nidimoru and Krishna DK who had earlier delivered the thriller '99' starring Kunal Khemu, Soha Ali Khan and Boman Irani.
