Arbaaz Khan, who has portrayed intense and serious roles onscreen so far, will be now entering the comedy genre. According to the reports, Khan will now be seen as a judge on the 16th season of Comedy Circus. He is confident that he can take jokes on himself as he has a good sense of humour.
We have so far seen Archana Puran Singh and Sohail Khan judging the show. And now, Arbaaz will be replacing his brother in the judge's seat. Praising Archana, Arbaaz told the IANS, "Archana does it very gracefully. They crack so many jokes. Sometimes it looks so exaggerated and over the top, so you should have the ability to laugh at yourself."
"I think I have got enough humour and I have the capacity to take a joke on myself and that's the reason I am here," he added. "We really don't know what is really hitting below the belt, but whatever it is, you have to understand the intention is not to harm you. If we have the ability to sit on the judge's chair and enjoy jokes cracked on others, we should have the ability to take the jokes on ourselves," he said.
Talking further about the replacement, Arbaaz said, "I was open to do something on TV. Many things came my way, but they didn't excite me. When Sohail got busy, they (the channel bosses) wanted somebody to replace him. They have their own parameters and they felt they need me... they approached me. Sohail did it for two years, it's a long period of time."
