New Delhi:

Stand-up comedian Gaurav Kapoor, who introduced himself as a “freelancer”, spoke heart-to-heart about today’s youth, the importance of love and relationships in a career, his inspiration and how he handles the pressure of content creation at Yuva – Youth of the WhatsNew2Day For Change mega conclave held today in New Delhi. Speaking to WhatsNew2Day’s Arun Singh, Gaurav said that he is the “funniest” person in his family. About taking up stand-up as a career, Gaurav said, “I used to do work. I used to do stand-up and work at the same time. When I felt I had saved enough, I started doing it full-time.”

Based on his words, Gaurav Kapoor was asked to choose between work and business. In his signature style, he said, “A job is better to start with. Do the wrongs in other people’s affairs. But in the long run, doing business is always a better option.” When asked about the importance of love and relationships in one’s career, he said, “If you are a blogger, it helps (laughs). Otherwise, love and relationships are different. Career is different. Thoda supports mil jata hai (you get a little support).” When asked about the importance of numbers on social media, Gaurav said, “All content cannot be viral. With the passage of time, we learn to accept the fact. But numbers do matter in this profession.”

When asked about the source of his inspiration for his performance, Gaurav Kapoor referred to the West Delhi characters he has seen growing up. “I saw a man standing on the road all day long. I don’t know how he earned his bread and butter. I just knew that during Dussehra he would get a commission from the person who would dress up as Raavan (laugh).”

The star comedian also said that today’s youth have more access to information than in the past. However, parents have also switched from television to OTTs due to technological advancements, he said.

Speaking on WhatsNew2Day’s Yuva – Youth For Change mega: Union Youth Minister Anurag Thakur was the chief guest at the event and spoke about harnessing the power of youth in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The event will feature performances by Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra, singer Jasleen Royal and panel discussions with social media influencers Divija Bhasin and Dr. Cuterus.
