Zakir Khan on how his comedy career started “I wanted to become a radio jockey, so uske liye main Delhi aaya course karne, so my friend and flat mate then – Vishwas went to watch a comedy show with his friend and when he came home, he was like dost you should do comedy because you will do a really good job. I was like theek hai dekhte hai. I searched online, and it had some 500 rupees entry fees, and we were unemployed that time, so I had to wait for almost a year and a half to have that extra 500 rupees and December 2012 was the first time I went on stage.”
He added on his struggle with his family when he began his career in comedy “As an artist it is very important when your family understands you. They were little disappointed because I come from a family of musicians, so comedy was very far away from their idea of anything and it was considered shameful as we are a family of musicians but overall, I think they understood that it is also an art form… so rather than retaliating and fighting with them I made sure that I explained to them what comedy is and how I function and how I operate.”
