Times can change quickly and from the looks of it, Bharti Singh has been facing the brunt of it. She was once known to be one of the most talented comedians in showbiz, and over the years she even amassed a huge fan following. She has been part of several shows, and has also performed gigs and stand-up shows individually.
Bharti has gained seismic fan-following, particularly through her YouTube channel, LOL- Life Of Limbachiyyas. With the channel, she provides an insight into her life and works to her fans, and keeps them hooked up to the newest developments.
In the latest vlog, Bharti revealed the real reason why she chose to focus more on her YouTube channel since many of her shows have suffered a severe slash of remuneration post-Covid-19.
The comedian revealed how she gets paid something that she doesn’t deserve. Bharti revealed, “Ever since the pandemic hit us, budgets of the shows have really been affected. And that has happened in all the industries. But, no artiste would be fine if they are not paid what they deserve. Agar main jo charge karti thi, uska 25% bhi nahi doge aap, toh fir kaam nahi ho ho payega.”
She also clarified that with such cost-curtailing done by the makers of the show, her remuneration had been undeservedly slashed to an absolute half.
The actress and comedian added that she never complains and that once she is on stage, her dedication towards work nearly makes her forget how long she had been performing, vis-à-vis what she gets paid for it.
Bharti said, “I don’t say things like, ‘Main 1 lac leti thi, par ab 50 hazaar le rahi hu toh 6 ki jagah 3 jokes hi maarungi. Once I go on the stage, I don’t even remember for how long I’ve been asked to perform or how much I’ve been paid. Live shows mein mujhe rokna padta hai because I’m not someone who follows the script. So, I never ever complain about overtime also.”
Bharti also elaborated that with such cost-curtailing done by the makers of the show, her remuneration had been undeservedly slashed to an absolute half.
In the concluding segment of her Vlog, Bharti mentioned that she would be happy to take a step back from her shows if such a pay cut would prevail.
