New Delhi: Actor Shreyas Talpade, who played Laxman in Golmaal 3, will not stammer in the film's fourth part, titled Golmaal Again, reports news agency IANS. There's another 'quirk' to Laxman's character in Golmaal Again, Shreyas said. "There were certain issues that happened last time because of that stammering thing. Considering all of us are getting extra sensitive about little things... this time, he (his character) is not stammering. There is another quirk to his character. He's got a slight lisp," the 41-year-old actor told news agency IANS. Golmaal Again is the fourth instalment of Rohit Shetty's blockbuster comedy series. The first part, Golmaal: Fun Unlimited released in 2006.

Golmaal Returns, which released in 2008, was Shreyas' first film of the series. IANS reports that in 2010, the Indian Stammering Association had taken legal action against the makers of Golmaal 3 for making fun of people who stammer. "Restrictions are there. It's not like if this thing is not there, you can't do it. But when you need that thing so, you need to fight for that. Otherwise, we try and find an option. There is no point in getting overtly sensitive about every little thing. Someone told me that in an upcoming film, there is a problem with the word nanga (nude). We have been using this word since ages. So suddenly what happened? We shouldn't be so sensitive about it," Shreyas told IANS.

Meanwhile, Tusshar Kapoor, who has been part of all the four films, plays the speech impaired character of Lucky.

Of the action sequences in Golmaal Again, Shreyas said, "All of us except Ajay bhai (Devgn), we haven't done much action yet. But for Rohit Shetty, without action, it doesn't work. Everyone wants to know how many cars he blew up for the film. When I saw the set, I thought we would be sitting in the cars, but he told us 'No, you guys will be just jumping outside'."

Kareena Kapoor, who played a pivotal role in Golmaal Returns and Golmaal 3, is not a part of the new film. Actresses Parineeti Chopra and Tabu are the new additions. Shreyas said that the team misses Kareena and wished she joins the cast for a small sequence. "She is quirky and bubbly, but yes, we do miss Kareena. She is happy-go-lucky, little moody, otherwise she was fun on sets. She was there in two parts. I so wished her to be part of this film even if it was for a small sequence...with all of us somewhere. If we continue with the franchise, I hope she will be in the next one," he told IANS.

Golmaal Again is scheduled to release during Diwali. Kunal Kemmu, Arshad Warsi and Neil Nitin Mukesh are also part of the film.
