Comedian Jay Chhaniara is back on the small screen after a break of 17 years. The comedian stood on the stage of India’s Laughter Champion and entertained the audience with his jokes. The show has Archana Puran Singh and Shekhar Suman as judges. Comedian suffering from cerebral palsy hails from Rajkot, Gujarat.
Jay first performed on the stage of India’s Laughter Challenge at the age of 6. When asked why it took almost 17 years to join another show, he said, “I always look for shows that offer clean comedy to the audience and I am not a fan of vulgar jokes. The show makes sure that people can watch it with their families and provides a great platform to the artistes who are not nationally renowned.”
The comedian was overjoyed to be back on the show with the same judges. He said, ‘I am having a great time shooting for India’s Laughter Champion. I am very happy that I am returning after 17 years through this show. I did a show 17 years ago, India’s Laughter Challenge and once again I am getting a chance to make people laugh and relieve their stress. I am very happy about it.”
The playwright enjoyed the company of Judges Shekhar Suman and Archana Puran Singh. He told the press, “I am meeting Shekhar Suman ji after 17 years and I was extremely excited about it. He still loves, respects and loves me the same way he did 17 years ago. I am glad that he liked my performance and told me that I have returned with the same enthusiasm.”
He further added that Shekhar Suman ji told him, “You are 28 years old but to me you will always be an 8-year-old child.”
Nothing has changed in the show which was once praised by all. Rochelle Rao is hosting India’s Laughter Challenge. Rochelle welcomed the guest. The season will feature various guests like Ravi Gupta from Uttar Pradesh, Rasik Maharaj and Vikas Maharaj from Gujarat, Siddhant Lama from Siliguri and Akhtar Hindustani from Indore.
