Bharti Singh recalls the time when she performed at comedy show while mother was in ICU
Comedian Bharti Singh, who shares an extremely close bond with her family, opened up about the time when she had performed at a show, while her mother was in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit). The comedian recalled the time when she was taught that as an artist, no matter what happens, the show must go on. Bharti is one of the most popular comedians in the country, who has carved her niche in the Entertainment industry with her hard work. Bharti Singh recalled the time when her mother was admitted to the hospital but she had to fulfill her professional commitments, for which she was not even paid.
Speaking with Siddharth Kannan, the comedian said, “When I did my first show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, we got a hotel stay sponsored by the show. I and my mother had this habit of eating only home-cooked meals and by consuming hotel food for several days my mother got a stomach ulcer, she was in the ICU and I had to go to my shoot and make people laugh for the semifinals of the show on that day.”
Bharti shared that while she was at the backstage, she was thinking about her mother, who was admitted to the ICU. She said, “When I was at the backstage, I was thinking about my mother, who was in the ICU and I kept on thinking that I am not even sure if I will win the show and I am not getting any money from here because I am a contestant and still I have to stay here and leave my mother in this condition.”

Singh continued, “I felt what kind of a life is this, at that point, I realised that if you have to become an artist you have to keep these personal things aside, you have to work for the audience, you have to make them laugh. Aap stage pe nahi keh sakte ki aaj thoda kam hasaungi meri mummy hospital mein hain please taaliyan bajaiyega (You can’t go on the stage and say that my mother is in the hospital so I will not be very funny but still clap for me)”
Meanwhile, Bharti is currently a host on the reality TV shows- The Khatra Khatra Show and Hunarbaaz: Desh Ki Shaan with her husband, Haarsh Limbachiyaa. Singh had made her debut with the 2008 show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. She appeared as a contestant on the show and was the second runner-up.
On the personal front, the comedian is expecting her first child with Haarsh. Bharti Singh announced her pregnancy only recently. She also shared some photos from her maternity photoshoot, where she is flaunting her Baby bump.
