Comedian Kapil Sharma says he feels incomplete while shooting without a live audience due to the coronavirus pandemic

Kapil Sharma has resumed shooting once again for his hit comedy show. The comedian however is taking all precautions to safeguard his crew and co stars from the coronavirus outbreak. This means that the show has also chosen to not involve any live audience whatsoever. Speaking in an interview with IANS Kapil opened up on the difficulties of shooting in the new world. He said, "We get so many messages and posts from people saying if they were stressed, watching the show helped them overcome certain situations or they just felt relieved and forgot about their problems for a while. I think comedy has that effect on people.”

 
“After a long and tiresome day, all one wants is to forget about whatever that has happened, even though it's for a little while, and relax. So yes, more comedy shows should be on air," he added.
 
He continued saying, “The biggest lesson that I have learnt in life is that nothing is constant. Therefore, one shouldn't take anything for granted. There will always be good and bad times in life. But the bad times always teach something important and help us sail through.”
 
Speaking about his audience he said, “For all these years that I have been working, the audience has played a huge role in my success. Whenever I perform, I get a reaction and that helps me build on it further. Since we can't host audience on set (due to the pandemic), you will see cardboard cut-outs of audience reactions now. It does feel incomplete to shoot without an audience, however, Archana (Puran) ji makes up for it -- she and her laughter are equal to 100 people on set.”
