New Delhi: The world of comedy seems to be jinxed. Just two weeks after Raju Srivastava’s death, there has been another loss. The industry has lost another comic star.

He posted an emotional video on Instagram. Breaking the news, Sunil said in the video, “Another stunning revelation has emerged from the world of humour. Our fellow contestant in the Laughter Challenge, Kansara Ji, is no longer with us. We used to laugh a lot with Kansara. Parag Bhaiya is no more in this world. A few days ago, Deepesh Bhan and Raju bhai both passed away. One comedian after another is leaving us.”
He went on to talk about the back-to-back deaths in the past few months. “What is this? Has the comic world caught the evil eye? I don’t know why the people who make everyone laugh and their families are going through this… One by one, the pillars of comedy are moving away from us.” Sunil also captioned the post “My Friend #Laughter artist #ParagKansara is no more Rip (sic).”
