DIFFERENT ZONE Rajpal Yadav feels he is much better in Main Madhuri...

After long being known as a comedian, Rajpal Yadav did the lead role in his mentor Ramgopal Varma's film Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon.Yadav will now don the lead role in Main, Meri Patni... Aur Woh, opposite Rituparna Sengupta, a well-known face in Bengali cinema. "This film has brought out the best in me. If you have liked me in Main Madhuri... , then in Main... you will find me five times better!" declares Yadav. He has personally taken interest in transforming his image "from hair to shoes" to play a restrained librarian Mithilesh Shukla in the film. It is the story of how he develops a complex after his wife (played by Sengupta) meets a man she can emotionally identify with and how he handles the situation. "You will identify with situations, characters and circumstances in the film," assures Yadav.

Comedy still remains Yadav's first love, though. "It has given me recognition. I wouldn't have been accepted in comic roles had the audience not loved me in it."
