Bharti Singh, the comedian hailing from Amritsar, feels that a ‘bindaas’ character like her can never hide the news of her engagement from public.
Asked about her secret engagement to Harsh Limbachiyaa, writer of Comedy Circus, she said, “I am such an open-minded person who prefers to do everything in open. Engagement is such a pleasant news that I will announce it at the top of my voice when it happens. Rumours have hurt me a lot as I was not even asked once if it is true or not.”
Bharti was in the city recently to promote her film. She will be playing the role of a funny sister-in-law for the first time in Mundeyan Ton Bach Ke Rahin.
Keeping her sense of humour alive, she said, “Even if I flirt with Shah Rukh Khan or Amitabh Bachchan, I do it openly on screen.”
On her plus-sized personality, she said, “It is all about how you carry it. Today a fat girl like me is earning while slim, beautiful ones are sitting at home. I have never felt inferior about my weight.”
On being asked what inspired her to adopt comedy as a profession, she said, “I was never inspired from anyone. All comedians have been males. Moreover, I come from traditional backward place where we had no idea of what an inspiration means. I just want women to get inspired from Bharti now and bring comical talent to the fore. Comedy is not the monopoly of men only.”
