Kiku Sharda: I’d love to be called an actor, not comedian

He makes TV viewers burst with laughter with his drag act as Palak of Comedy Nights With Kapil, but Kiku Sharda says he’d rather be called an actor than a comedian

Kiku, who’s dancing away to glory for the the seventh season of the celebrity dance show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa these days, is also participating in the competition in his character Palak.

“I have been working in the industry for the past 11 years. I would loved to be called an actor, and not comedian,” said Kiku.

He is pleased that his character Palak has achieved a unique identity, and more so as the makers of Jhalak… want Palak to rock the dance floor with her amusing dance movements. “The show wanted Palak to participate. My character has got its own individuality after the Comedy Nights…. People recognise me as Palak. I’m quite happy that Palak has attained an identity,” Kiku said.

Jhalak… went on air on Colors on June 7 with filmmaker Karan Johar, choreographer-director Remo D’Souza and Madhuri Dixit on the judges panel. Kiku, who hasn’t learnt dancing, but loves dancing, is practicing with his choreographer Kruti to give neck-to-neck competition to other celebrity contestants. He’s also learning different dance forms. “I have never learnt dancing, but I love dancing. Palak has its three to four signature moves. I cannot showcase just those on the Jhalak… stage since it’s a hardcore dance show. The tasks cannot be taken lightly. All the contestants are judged technically. I learn and practice different dance forms with my choreographer Kruti. I’ll be practicing the Latin form of dance, which I have never done in my life,” he said.

Kiku said as the show proceeds, he might get out of Palak’s get-up and perform as himself. “I may not do the whole show as Palak. With time, I’ll get out of Palak’s get-up and perform being Kiku,” he said.

Kiku is fond of dancing and this is not his first dance show. He was earlier seen in the sixth season of celebrity couple dance show Nach Baliye with his wife Priyanka Sharda, who he says also loves dancing. Jhalak… is Kiku’s fourth TV show besides Comedy Nights With Kapil, which he says is his main priority. He is currently also playing Akbar in the new show Har Mushkil Ka Hal: Akbar-Birbal and does small stints for F.I.R alongside Kavita Kaushik.

Handling the four shows altogether is a tough task for Kiku and he doesn’t get much sleep.
