MUMBAI -- Actor Tusshar Kapoor fails to understand why people get upset over adult comedy films and says there is a prejudice against such movies here.

Tusshar has been a part of adult comedy films like Kya Kool Hai Hum(2005), Kya Kool Hai Hum 2(2012) and now he will be seen in third instalment of the same series - Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 and another adult comedy Mastizaade.

"My parents are ok with me doing adult comedy films as long as there is a limit (on certain things) and the story is good. I don't understand why everybody is making hullabaloo about adult comedy films," the 39-year-old actor told PTI.

Tusshar fails to understand that if the audiences can watch American films, then why there is so much hue and cry about adult comedy films here.

"Murder and gangster films have so much of adult content, I don't understand why people are upset about adult comedy films," he said.

"I think there is prejudice against adult comedy films...

People can watch American films. But if we make something here people have problem with it," he said.

In Bollywood, top actors usually refrain from doing adult comedy films.

To this, the Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai(2001) actor says, "To each his own, whoever is not comfortable has the right of not doing it. I am comfortable so I do it. I don't think it (adult comedy films) passes a wrong message. It is for adults."

"It is the responsibility of parents to make sure their kids do not watch adult comedy films. Why blame adult comedy films, why not blame the violence, other films for it.

I don't have problem doing these kinds of films, " he said.

Kya Kool Hain Hum 3, a sex-comedy film starring Tusshar, Aftab Shivdasani and Mandana Karimi in lead roles, is scheduled to release on January 22.
