From standup shows to a multi-season franchise where  you are the writer and main lead, how has the journey been for you?

The journey has been great and I’m very grateful for all the opportunities that I’ve got. It’s been a journey full of learning—I’ve learnt how to create, write and act. And doing all of this together might take a toll on me while I tour for my shows, but the learning is far greater than the pain I may endure in the process. So that learning is what I like to focus on when I look at my journey.

This show also has a spin of political satire. How is the writing process for this genre different from other shows or specials that you write?

It’s not just about writing political satire but it’s more about thinking what goes behind the scenes of basic grassroot politics in a country. Ronny’s journey in the show is not about someone who wants to become a Prime Minister but it is about someone seeking for a ticket to become the corporator of the city municipality. The writing is directed towards people who think that this is out of their reach, ability and resources, and it is meant to inspire them.

You’ve talked about how with this show you wanted to tell a story that you have lived. Can you tell us what real life anecdotes have shaped Season 3?

I was an unemployed adult for almost 4 years of my life and my experiences from that time is what I have tried to portray in Season 3. Previously, I showcased the struggles I faced when I worked in an office setting. In the first season, I depicted the days from my college life—so we’ve still been in the realm of Zakir Khan when creating this show.

Afrah Sayed, Lhakyila, Dalai and Vidushi discuss their characters in ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry,’ recall fond memories of shooting the show and share their best ‘girls supporting girls’ moments.

Can you share a piece of advice for creators or comedians who are just starting out in this industry?

Don’t seek advice from senior comedians. Just be on stage and perform as much as you can.

You became an overnight success and you continue to churn out successful specials all the time. With all the adulation, how do you make sure you stay grounded and focused on the next title?

There are a few things: staying connected to your roots, being accessible to your family and friends, not wasting time in fan groups, not surrounding yourself with yes-men and not living the high that cheerleading brings you.
