Comedian Bharti Singh needs no introduction. The ace comedian, who recently got married to longtime boyfriend Haarsh Limbachiyaa, became a household name soon after she became a famous comedian and a celebrity face. But as the saying goes, nothing comes easy. Having a non-famous or non-filmy background, it was a real struggle for Bharti Singh. The comedian has never shied away from speaking about her struggles before stepping into the world of glitz and glamour.
Not many know, Bharti Singh comes from a middle class family and has three brothers and sisters. Her mother, Kamla Singh, who got married at the age of 17, was a mother of three children at the age of 23. Before Bharti became a star, her mother was used to work at a factory. Recollecting some dreadful childhood memories, the ace comedian said that the sound of those machines still haunt her. She had once revealed that her mother used to work in a factory and used to complete the pending work at home. Bharti revealed she has grown up listening to the sounds of a sewing machine all day and it still haunt her.
Earlier, speaking about her struggles she had told Dainik Bhaskar, “I lost my father at the age of 2; I don’t have any memories with him. My mother did not remarry; in fact she decided to struggle for us. Most of my childhood was spent in poverty where my mother and elder siblings spent their days and night to provide safe shelter and enough food on the table. In fact, we have slept with stomach half empty too.”
She had also opened up how she decided to get into comedy and acting. She had said, “I selected the acting line as I was short of money. My family was facing lot of monetary problem in house. So, when I left Amritsar to make my career in Mumbai, my relatives doubted my decision. When they saw me doing comedy on the stage; they would make fun of it. Guess what; the same people want me to guide their children in making a career in Mumbai (smiles).” (ALSO READ: Comedian Bharti Singh Makes Varun Dhawan Blush Hard By Revealing About Her Niece Who Is Jealous Of His GF Natasha Dalal)
