Sumona Chakravarti on feeling bad about jokes on her lips

During a chat with Habit Coach, Sumona talked about her early days when people tried joking about her mouth in shows, which did not work. Eventually, she said it got picked up in other shows and left her feeling ‘really bad.’ “I remember Archana sat with me and said ‘why are you upset?’ I said ‘They’ve made fun of my mouth and my lips and everything, and then I didn’t forget the lines he forgot and he said something off-script. I’m not a stand-up comedian; I can’t just come up with funny jokes like that. I mean, if I crack a joke, nobody will understand it,” she said.

Sumona also shared Archana Puran Singh's words which helped her to recover: “If you can laugh at yourself, you will never feel humiliated. Secondly, about the lip or the mouth part, you have something that women I know pay money to get.” She also talked about people telling her about Kapil making fun of her and asking her ‘You’re a strong-minded woman, how are you a part of this misogynist show?' “It's a script. It's not like I am actually…somebody with a duck mouth, as exaggerated. I have come to terms with it. I am a decent looking girl and I have a nice mouth,” she added.
