Sudesh Lehri had slapped Krushna Abhishek on The Kapil Sharma Show and that matter has still not died down. Sudesh spoke about it once again on Maniesh Paul’s podcast. However, he might have also hinted that a past incident caused a trigger.
Sudesh told Maniesh that he would be very jealous of him and Krushna, since they could do comedy more effortlessly than him. He, however, credited the slap incident for making Krushna as famous as he is today.
The comedian recalled that he would often forget his lines and Krushna would sense it. Krushna’s slapping incident began as an experiment. He would slap Sudesh and say ‘abbe saale,’ which made people laugh. To add to that, he would call up his wife Kashmera Shah and say ‘Kash mujhe comedy karni aa gayi.’
Sudesh shared that Krushna felt that was comedy and so he continued doing that. The comedian had to give excuses about why was he getting slapped and ran out of them. Moreover, Sudesh felt that getting slapped became his image.
Thus, he asked Krushna to stop but since the actor wouldn’t stop, Sudesh also started slapping Krushna without any prior intimation. That is when the slaps stopped.
However, Sudesh’s actions could go back to his early days in the industry, when he almost cried after getting slapped. The actor-comedian recalled that it was during him working with an orchestra that he first got beaten up for no good reason. He was singing and a drunkard slapped him. “I was shocked. I came back to the green room and felt like crying. I started questioning my existence and life,” Sudesh had shared.
The comedian revealed that while the band wanted to seek revenge, he wanted to leave that life. It is when he decided to never sing in an orchestra again.
