Shailesh Lodha opens up on The Kapil Sharma Show

Shailesh Lodha recently opened up on the time he appeared in The Kapil Sharma Show.

Shailesh Lodha faced massive trolling after criticising The Kapil Sharma show post his appearance for the show, finally broke his silence on the same. In a new interview, the poet and actor also expressed his views on the changing comedy culture with television programs.

In an interview with Lallantop, Shailesh was asked about the time he bashed TKSS. In his defence, he shared, “Kapil and I’ve worked together and in 2012 we have done shows in Singapore together. Comedy Nights with Shailesh and Kapil during that time. What I was trying to say at that time was that things like Bua, Daadi flirting with guests is not right according to our culture and I still stand by it. But that doesn’t mean I will never go on his show and not tell the world what I’m doing? I went to his show and showed the strength of Hindi poetry. When I recited my poetry ‘Maa’ every person there on the show stood with tears in their eyes. I went there and went with the strength of poetry. Kapil as an artist no doubt he’s great and is a friend.”

On being asked if he doesn’t prefer that kind of comedy, Shailesh said, “I disagree with that kind of comedy, main sahej nahi hoon.”

Shailesh was also asked about the shows where men cross dressed to hit on their neighbour’s wives in serials like Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai and Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, he said, “Sadly we have to accept one thing in this country that we are becoming mediocre. If you are trying to become intelligent nobody would like to see or hear you. The country is enjoying reels and dancing on Patli kamariya, 90 percent of the crowd is doing this today. And if you try to be intelligent nobody will hear you.”

On a closing note, he revealead how Sarabhai vs Sarabhai which was considered a cult show never really generated great numbers on TRP charts and hence wasn’t considered a hit show. “Sarabhai vs Sarabhai was written so brilliantly but can you believe it that it was not a hit show. Would you believe it? As per TRP it was not a hit show, they only made 70-72 episodes. But the moment you turn mediocre, you will be accepted with open arms. The problem is not with just comedy but language and films as well. Libraries are shut, newspapers are shutting down, we are not used to reading good stuff, we have only got reels to watch. We have become so superficial that all the superficial things will always work,” he concluded.
