Excerpts from the Interview:
What are the things you keep in mind while curating a humorous line?
Ever since I was a child my mother always told me that political discussion should always be done in the closed doors of the house. As everyone has their own political views. She always told us to not crack jokes on anyone's political preference and sexual orientation. And that's what is imbibed in me since a very young age and that's how my conditioning has been.
Every time I have a have something to offer to the audience it's my mother and sister who gets to know it first, they are my first audience, therefore my level of acceptance is my own home. And sometimes when you overstep that line then you have the audiences to teach you.
Furthermore, you learn from them and do not repeat the same mistake again and move on that's how the process. Anybody is as good as the mistakes they make or as genesis as the stuff that they do.
On her sister Kubbra Sait being her critic
Kubbra Sait is my critic, didi has a very cool view to stuff. When I do something, she gives me her perception. She has a reading or right which is right about audio and a video view. I will share an incident with you, during my radio days, I had done a prank call and crossed the line and she told me that you can't do something like thing on the radio he is older to you.
After working for over 7-8 years on the radio I have been conditioned to do such things. I am more conditioned and regimented not do certain things. I don't joke about religion, sex politics and don't use foul language.
Will we see Kubbra and Danish do a stand-up show together?
I asked her to do my lockdown videos. She said, 'Dan I can't do what you do, she doesn't want to do my stuff.'
If ever you host a talk show what would that be called?
(Laughs) 'Danish with Danish', as I will do all the good and sweet talks or Get 'Sait' Go.
