Cyrus Sahukar is “sick and tired” of seeing people cry and sing on TV. And so, the funny guy has decided to provide some much-needed rib-tickling comedy. “Where is all the fun and entertainment?” he asks, as he gears up to host two funny shows — Kickass Mornings on MTV and POGO All Stars on POGO. “All Stars has the most bizarre games.
In Kickass Mornings, I am playing 18 characters and we are looking for the Indian of the Year. It’s like a mockumentary. We will have many people in it — an engineer, two flop rappers from abroad, etc,” says the VJ, who is also doing Anil Kapoor’s Ayesha, which is an adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic Emma.
Here’s Cyrus’ take on what’s been making news recently:
1) The elections
They have made the middle finger very popular
2) Rakhi Ka Swayamwar
I really want to see the guy who will marry her. Will I audition? No, I already have enough troubles.
3) Multiplex—Producer row
Now, I think all films will release on the same day. So, I will watch 10 minutes of all films on the same day.
4) Ram Gopal Varma modifying the national anthem
This is something I have to hear. There will be a fair bit of drama. Everything gets dramatic in this country.
5) Shoes being thrown at the politicians
We have evolved now. Earlier, we used to do it on cut-outs and effigies, now we do it on real people.
6) A milkshake being named after Mallika Sherawat
It’s going to be good. It will really help people cool down
7) Kolkata Knight Riders
I wonder what they are going to do with their clothes now. I hope they give them to me.
