While there have been plenty of instances of stand-up comedians becoming credible movie stars, one can't think of many actors who have successfully turned into comics. Bollywood actress Richa Chadda is planning to take her tough-talking female don Bholi Punjaban (from the 2013 film, Fukrey) on a three-city stand-up comedy tour ahead of her upcoming film, Fukrey Returns.

"We had this idea that Bholi should take to the stage. Every dialogue that she says sounds like a roast. I think there will be a demand for this. It will be fun to try out something new," Chadda told mid-day.
