Contemporary work in the humour genre is rare on TV today. People should watch the reruns to know what actual comedy is, especially during the crucial period of lockdown. There was no vision before joining the show. Motivation to perform the role, was thought of after signing it (laughs). Iss mahine ka kiraya dena hai bhai (I need to pay my monthly rent to my landlord) I cannot go to the landlord and tell him that I refused the role because I didn’t like it. For me, it was to grab the role and then look at motivation.”
