Another Version Of Rajiv Thakur
Rajiv Thakur is a stand-up comedian actor who has participated in various TV shows. For his interest in comedy shows, he was first appreciated as a contestant, when he made his debut in the year 2008. His first appearance was in a TV show called ‘
Comedy Champions’, which was aired on the Sahara One TV channel. The show was based on performances of jokes, which was never seen before on Indian television.
This show was a mixture of comedy jokes presented by Pakistani and Indian actors. Due to its popularity, the show lasted for two seasons. Rajeev Thakur made an advent in the TV comedy shows, along with his other contemporary stand-up comedian artists such as
Kuldeep Dubey, and Sunil Pai, among others. The show helped artists like Rajeev Thakur, with fresh content of jokes matching with their personality and style of performances.
After this show, the actor came back again as a contestant on another comedy show that was telecast on Sony Entertainment TV channel. The program was ‘
Comedy Ka Daily Soap’. The show was totally hilarious as it presented the mimicries of famous celebrities. In this show, many stand-up comedians and other actors from small screen had participated.
The show had 32 episodes and reached it’s final telecast just within two months. It is sad that many stand-up comedian actors are not given any chances in film projects. Hence, the talent of many stand-up comedian actors is not yet tapped well in the entertainment industry, which is really very sad. Yet one must cheer this actor who shone brilliantly in every performance that he communicated to audiences through TV shows.
