February 17, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): TV actor Sharad Kelkar, who is doing the role of a hated landlord on Colors show ‘Bairi Piya’ and is tickling audience’s funny bone as a comic on ‘Comedy Circus- Maha Sangram’, is balancing between them.
Now for Sharad, it is not funny to make audience laugh, but still the comic trio of Sharad, Paresh and Bharti is quite entertaining and is making people laugh hard.
Clarifies Sharad, “Over the time our chemistry has only got smoother, we have great fun while rehearsing our acts. Ours is a very different team because Bharti is chubby, Paresh is short and I am quite taller to both of them, so we are already mismatched and look quite a funny trio”.
So, what all fun the three have during rehearsals?
“More than fun, it’s painful for me when we have scenes where Bharti falls on me or slaps me. Audience may laugh on such scenes, but only I know what happens when she falls on me I am crushed and in pain! She is 85 kilos imagine what happens when she falls on someone,” chuckles Sharad.
And how does it feel to be slapped by Bharti?
“She has a very heavy hand, so even if she slaps us we get hurt and I tell her not to slap so hard and she replies I am slapping lightly but my hand is heavy,” chortles the actor.
No wonder Sharad seems a big bully on ‘Bairi Piya’, after all, after being under the weight of Bharti in ‘Comedy Circus’ he gets his turn to throw his weight around in ‘Bairi Piya’!
