Navjot Singh Siddhu, who has joined comedian Kapil Sharma's maiden production venture "Comedy Nights With Kapil" as a facilitator, says very few people laugh despite the fact that laughter is a stress-buster.

He was also part of "The Great India Laughter Challenge" and says he liked the title of the show because he felt that "laughter was taboo" in the country.

"India has forgotten to laugh, we are too formal in life. When I saw my family laughing, I realised that I had inhibitions about laughing. Let a show be a stress-buster. We don't go into that zone. We manufacture trouble for ourselves. Amidst all these troubles, laughter is a stress-buster where you sit in front of TV for an hour and unwind and de-stress yourself," he told IANS.

Talking about Kapil's show, going on air June 22 on Colors, Sidhu said: "I am a facilitator on the show. Kapil is the hero and there are side heroes."

He clarified that he is not judging the show.

"I have never ever judged people. Only god can judge people. We all have our faults and limitations. There is just scope for improvement. We just give an overview of how things can be better," he said.

Talking about his future work, he said he is interested in anything that "excites me" and "makes me happy".

"Any undertaking where I enjoy the job. I ensure that I do not accept anything, which becomes a burden. TV is merciless. You are on your own, it all depends on how good you are. It is all on merit," said Sidhu, who also participated in "Bigg Boss 6".

    True people have forgotten how to laugh. And TV does not provide any entertainment, let alone reason or opportunity to laugh. Prime time is ful of TRASH soaps with ever bickering saas Bahut and laughter shows dish out cheap jokes and double meaning dialogue which one can't sit n watch with family let alone laugh over them. It's high time our entertainment pundits had a good look at themselves. Mr sadhu pl help if u can cause our comments on various shows fal on deaf ears.
