Mukesh Vohra - a wonderful addition to the list of Punjabi comedians

Amritsar boy-Mukesh Vohra who recently won the best anchor award and currently doing back to back shows along with promoting his upcoming film, Ishq Garaari, says that he always wanted to be an actor.

In an exclusive interview to, this wonderful comedian said that he dreamt to be a comic actor and had started working for the same when he was very young. "I was interested in acting since I was five, when I got a chance to perform on stage.  When I was in 7th grade, I was honoured with the title- “Punjab da nanha bhashan champion” (Declamation king of Punjab). During my college days, I practiced theatre and drama. About 13 years ago, I got my first cassette released with Sudesh lahri ji. Since I was always fascinated with the film industry, it was quite natural for me to get into it," he says. 

Mukesh Vohra who plays a crucial role in Ishq Garaari releasing on 25th October, got noticed first in "Taur Mitran Di" and then Dheeraj Rattan's "Saadi Love Story". But he stole the show along with Binnu Dhillon in Tu Mera 22 Main Tera 22 - a movie which proved that this "Rajpal Yadav of Punjabi films" has all the potential to rise up as a great comedian.  

Asking about what he feels about "Dheeraj Rattan", he says, he feels blessed to be associated with the great writer/director like, Dheeraj Rattan because according to him, Dheeraj had a lot of faith in him which helped him to bring out the best out of him.

He says, "I started with small roles and today I am working in Dheeraj Bhaji’s Ishq Garaari. It is a great honour for me. Working with such a huge team and big names all together was a different experience but the best part was that we all worked like a family. From the cast till each member of the crew, Dheeraj Bha ji had made sure that we all worked like a close-knit family. Each one of us had bonded very well and everyone on sets like Sharry ji, Vinaypal, Ranvijay, Gulzaar had been very friendly and supportive all the time" 

We wish Mukesh now all the best for his film, Ishq Garaari that hits theatres this Friday.
