Archana Puran Singh Talks About Her 'Fake Laughter' On The Kapil Sharma Show, 'This Woman Is Mad'

Archana Puran Singh confessed about her fake laughter

As per a report in the Indian Express, Archana talked about her fake laughter on the show and shared that she no longer laughs at bad jokes. Revealing how people perceived her as mad, Archana shared:

“Now you’ll see, in the last three years, since we are doing the show, and especially now when we are on Netflix… Earlier people used to say that I laughed at bad jokes as well, I was not happy with it. What used to happen then is that if a particular joke didn’t have the punch, they (the makers) thought that if we use Archana’s laughter then woh punch utth jaayega, but it didn’t work that way, woh punch nahi utha, but main hi baith gayi. People started to think, ‘this woman is mad, she is laughing for nothing. The integrity of my laughter took the beating.”
