Talented comic artist Jhumma Mitra currently seen in SAB TV show, Tera Kya Hoga Alia has just made her digital debut. She recently joined hands with well-known short sketch YouTuber, BeYouNick ( Nikunj Lotia), for another fun-filled video along with B -Town laughter king Boman Irani.
“I have always loved the work of Nikunj as they are very clean and non-vulgar. Hence when they approached me for Dad Code, I immediately said yes. I will not say what it is about as the title seems to be self-explanatory. Although I did not get to shoot with Bomanji, the sheer thrill of sharing screen space with him is good enough,” says Jhumma to IWMBuzz.com.
“The best part of doing sketches is that they take not only less time to shoot, but also keep you in splits,” she adds.
So how has the response been?
“2.7 million views and counting is a huge number. I am getting more online traction for this than my mother’s effort in Tera Kya Hoga Alia. Fans are sending congratulatory messages to my family as well. Also, this gave me a chance to reconnect with the youth,” Jhumma had started with MTV gag shows l like Cyrus Vs. Cyrus etc before going on to do drama shows like Jeannie AurJuju and Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi et al.
“I hope this experience sets the stage for my proper web avatar. I am open for interesting digital assignments, be it shorts, web series or films. Something might be happening on that front as well, fingers crossed, she adds.
Here Jhuma laments the quality of TV content, saying, “No wonder we are losing audience to the web in drove. Sadly though, a lot of online stuff is semi porn. I have turned down several such offers. I don’t judge other girls who do it, but it is not for me.”
