Mallika Dua’s believe
In a recent interview, Mallika has expressed her opinion about the stand-up artists like comedians. She said that due to the popularity of digital media, people are now accepting comedians as professionals. Further, she added that making a name in the industry as a female comedian is really hard! This popular comedian from Shit People Say: Sarojini Nagar Edition admitted that the situation is better only because of the digital platforms like YouTube, NetFlix, and Amazon Prime.
According to Mallika, the changes have come in the past two years and female comedians are now getting good chances to make a name in the industry. Earlier, comedians of any Bollywood film were one oddball people who never received such appreciation from the audience. She added digital platforms have made Comedy an industry now which is now a successful profession of many. Even though, she feels that more females should get funny comic roles in the films and web series as performance has no gender.
Mallika can’t accept herself as a female comedian as she believes “a comedian is a comedian without any gender differentiation”. She said boldly, “Comedy is a profession which should not be defined by any gender”! Even though filmmakers are still not sure about the importance of female comedians, she believes that the situation will change soon!
