Be it roly-poly constable Gulgule or pudgy Palak, Kiku Sharda has always managed to carve a niche for himself despite other talented comedians thriving on the small screen. The actor, whose motto is to entertain and not to compete, says his new show ‘Har Mushkil Ka Hal: Akbar-Birbal’ will not only amuse people but would also educate them.
“I work to entertain people and not to compete. I want my audience to laugh their heart out and that`s the only important thing for me,” Kiku said.
“When I work, I really don`t think of competition. I should be getting entertained myself also while entertaining others. If I am not amused by my work, then I cannot do it,” added the actor who played constable Gulgule in ‘FIR’ to the hilt.
His new show ‘Har Mushkil Ka Hal: Akbar-Birbal’, a folk tale that has been given a comical twist by the actor along with his co-stars Vishal Kotian, Delnaaz Irani and Kishwar Merchant, started April 20 on Big Magic channel.
“Akbar and Birbal is an interesting legendary folk tale and I`m proud of the fact that I am playing Akbar. I have two sons, who are not much familiar with Indian folk tales. My show gives children a chance to laugh as well as get some knowledge about these tales,” he said.
Currently, the small screen is inundated with comedians like Kapil Sharma, Sunil Grover and Bharti Singh, which makes the competition stiff, but Kiku is unperturbed because he feels comedy comes naturally to him and he loves his craft.
