A stand- up comedian for seven years, Primlani picks topics that people don’t talk about— the environment, women’s safety, the corporate environment, gender equality, cultural aspects, Delhi men versus Mumbai men, civic sense…
“The primary purpose of a comedian is to hold up a mirror to society. We use comedy, which is the most potent and disarming tool of communication.” She recalls a 70- year- old who came up to her during a show about the male gaze in Delhi and admitted that he was a grandfather but he, too, was one amongst them. “… Main manta hoon ki aaj tak main ladkiyon ko aisi hi dekhta hoon, aur khuda kasam kal se nahin karoonga’. ( I admit I have been looking at girls in the way that you have described, but I promise I won’t do so from tomorrow),” he told her.
“I bring about change,” Primlani says proudly.
