Archana confesses to fake laughing.

Archana Puran Singh spoke about fake laughing on Kapil Sharma’s show and said that it doesn’t happen anymore.

Kapil Sharma is making a comeback with his new show, The Great Indian Kapil Show, on Netflix. Along with the comedian, his usual gang like Archana Puran Singh, Kiku Sharda, Sunil Grover and Krushna Abhishek will also be seen on the show. While everyone’s job is to perform comedy sketches, Archana’s job is to sit on a throne and laugh. She recently called it “the best job in the world”. However, the actress has also faced criticism for often fake laughing at bad jokes. She recently opened up about this in a recent media interaction.

Archana said, “It doesn’t happen anymore!” The actress added, “Now you’ll see, in the last three years, since we are doing the show, and especially now when we are on Netflix… Earlier people used to say that I laughed at bad jokes as well, I was not happy with it. What used to happen then is that if a particular joke didn’t have the punch, they (the makers) thought that if we use Archana’s laughter then woh punch utth jaayega (it’ll make people laugh), but it didn’t work that way, woh punch nahi utha, but main hi baith gayi (it didn’t become funnier, and I was criticised instead). People started to think, ‘This woman is mad, she is laughing for nothing. The integrity of my laughter took the beating.”

The actress added, “Someone even asked me how I’m laughing at it (at a joke that’s not funny). But it was the edit… you guys are aware of how one can do anything on edit. They were very creative, they would place my laughter everywhere.”

She said, “Anyway, now I am happy to say that now there are very few instances when the jokes don’t have the punch where I need to ‘false- laugh’, that’s number 1, number 2 is that Kapil now tells ‘You should have said that, this joke didn’t launch,’ he says it on stage itself and we even telecast it. So, we are the first to laugh at ourselves and that’s why the world laughs with us.”

“I didn’t know one day I’d become more famous for my laughter. As an actor I always thought it would be my performances would be known but see where destiny takes you,” she said.

The Great Indian Kapil Show will be available to stream on Netflix from March 30 this year.
