Comedian Bharti Singh has been associated with Kapil Sharma for a long time now. The two perform together on Kapil Sharma Show and share a good camaraderie, both on-screen and off-screen. Recently, Bharti was all praise of Kapil for defying a tough phase of his life and not giving up despite people’s predictions that his career is coming to an end.
Bharti, who is currently busy promoting the new season of her show Khatra Khatra with her husband Haarsh Limbachiyaa, interacted with Siddharth Kannan. During the interview, she was asked about Kapil’s one daring trait. About this she said: “He never gave up. There were several ups and downs in his life, but he did not give up.”
Without mentioning the phase in Kapil’s life when he was dealing with alcoholismBharti continued, “Log bolts the khatam, ab ye khatam, nashe mein pad gaya, ab comedy khatam (People used to say he’s done, he’s started drinking, his career is over). But even today running he’s a show on his own. And today, when people like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan or Farah Khan do something new, they want to perform on The Kapil Sharma Show. “
In 2017, Kapil Sharma was written off by many when he canceled his shows at the last minute and celebrities refused to appear in his show. He then went to a detox center in Bengaluru to overcome his alcohol addiction, where he spent 15 days and came back stronger.
During the same interview, Bharti also revealed how she realized what people mean when they say, “The show has to keep going.”
She told that during her stay at The Great Indian Laughter Challenge she had to make people laugh while her mother was in the intensive care unit after she got a stomach ulcer. While she was backstage, she thought: “Merko pata bhi nahi main jeetungi ya nahi. Mujhe iske paise bhi nahi mil rahe. Meri mummy ko ulcer hai aur mujhe logon ko hasana hai, ye kaisi life..aise karna padta hai artist ko ( I did not even know if I would win the show. I did not even get paid because I was a participant. I felt what a life it is).
It was at that moment that Bharti learned that when you are an artist, you have to leave your personal life at home and make people laugh. “Aap scene pe nahi keh sakte ki aaj thoda kam hasaungi. Meri mummy hospital mein hain please taaliyan bajaiyega (You can not go on stage and say my mother is in the hospital, so I may not make you laugh, but please clap for me).
Bharti is currently expecting her first child with Haarsh. Meanwhile, she hosts the talent reality show Hunarbaaz and is looking forward to Khatra Khatra.
