“The team used to edit the episode in such a way that my laughter was added to almost every act” says Archana Puran Singh

Archana Puran Singh: “This was wrong because it made me look like I had even laughed at a boring joke when in reality, I hadn’t.”

Archana Puran Singh opens up against claims that she is continually “laughing and doing nothing” on The Kapil Sharma Show. The actress has said that she doesn’t laugh on everything on the comedy show.

Archana has uncovered that she is still bearing the cost of her days on comedy show, Comedy Circus, where shots of her laughing were added after each joke, regardless in the event that she had laughed in real or not.

The actress told a leading daily, “The team used to edit the (Comedy Circus) episode in such a way that my laughter was added to almost every act and even in places where I had not laughed. This was wrong because it made me look like I had even laughed at a boring joke when in reality, I hadn’t. I have nothing against the makers, but I am sad that the editing team was not careful about this.”

Speaking in her defense, she said, “It is not easy to sit for hours and judge an act. Similarly, if you notice in Kapil’s show, I am not laughing on every banter. But since this is the impression that people still carry from my Comedy Circus days, I am still bearing the brunt that ‘Archanaji just keeps laughing and doing nothing on the show’.”

She had once uncovered on The Kapil Sharma Show about getting congratulatory messages when Sidhu had become Punjab Congress chief. “Mujhe itne phoolon ke flower bundles aaye hai, ‘mubarak ho, Archana ma’am’ kyunki woh wahaan standard boycott gaye (I got so many rose flower bundles and complimentary messages when Sidhu took up the post),” she had said.
