Kapil Sharma Show’s Sudesh Lehri recalls how he was slapped twice while playing in the orchestra
During a conversation with Maniesh, Sudesh described his most embarrassing yet pivotal experiences that were the most important lessons for his career. At the beginning of his professional career, as a child, he performed in an orchestra to support himself. But in an unfortunate turn of events, a man slapped Lehri. It ignited a fire in him that drove him to pursue a career as a comedian.
Later, Sudesh decided never to do an orchestra until he achieved stardom. He created his own tape, which turned out to be a hit, opening doors for him in the Punjabi industry.
However, the turning point in his professional life was getting the ‘Laughter Challenge’ platform.
Also, he recalled another incident when he was slapped by Krushna Abhishek not because of controversy or breakup but to make him better at his act. “I often forgot his dialogues on stage, during a performance, Krushna slapped me to make me laugh as I forgot my dialogues, saying ‘Abeyy Saaley'”, which has become a trademark of the jodi.
Nonetheless, Krushna-Sudesh has been one of television’s most iconic comic jodis.
Recently, Krushna Abhishek also appeared on ‘The Maniesh Paul Podcast’. From Bharti Singh, Sharad Kelkar, Prajakta Koli, Elli Avram, to people from different walks of life came on the show and shared interesting stories or incidents from their lives.
