Time and time again we have heard comedians say that the hardest thing on the planet is to make people laugh. And then we couldn’t believe anymore. Kapil Sharma, which is going out of air, has become one of the most beloved comedy shows on Indian television. Recently, the show’s judge, Archana Puran Singh, revealed that while she is known to be a comedienne at her house, her co-star once criticized her comedic skills. Keep reading to know more.
After her stint on The Kapil Sharma Show, Archana Puran Singh will now be seen on India’s Laughter Champion with Shekhar Suman, which will replace the previous show.
Archana Puran Singh recalled receiving a discouraging comment from one of her Mr Ya Mrs co-stars about her comedic skills. The actress was so motivated that she couldn’t do comedy for a long time.
Speaking to ETimes, Archana Puran Singh said, “I feel it is very important to motivate a new artist on stage. Even when a child recites poetry and if he doesn’t applaud him, he starts to feel a little shy. Similarly, when I sit in the judge’s seat, I feel motherly to each contestant and a little encouragement in the form of laughter helps the contestant perform. I remember in the ’80s I did a Mr Ya Mrs show and I had to do a comedic scene and one of the actors said he didn’t know how to do comedy.”
“I felt that making certain expressions was not comedy. And after that for a long time I couldn’t do comedy because I felt shy thinking that I won’t be able to make anyone laugh. But, as time went on, I gathered courage and worked hard, and I remember how the show was a good example of comedy and I was appreciated for my work.”
In the meantime, Kapil Sharma and the team will soon embark on a world tour.
