In the beginning only small funny videos were done. Actually, I’m not that big of a joker. I am a person who loves to read books. It was only when my videos started getting acceptance from the audience that I decided to be a little more responsible. That’s how critical videos are decided through satire. The character of Amina also came from it. I am trying to communicate my rights and wrongs. The aim was to satirize those who espoused reactionary ideas through comedy. I understand that the audience liked it.”
