While talking about how he came up with the name ‘Aalas, Motapa, Ghabraahat’ for the show, Karunesh said,

The name is part of joke punch line from the show itself. I had written the whole show, we shot it and while we were editing it, I was sitting with show’s director and editor who suggested me to give the name ‘Aalas, Motapa, Ghabraahat.’ The first half of the show is about my parents and the other half is about my relationship with my girlfriend.”

He further added,

I suppose this happened subconsciously because I wrote this show during pandemic. Also, it comes from the attempt to tell my story, which has to be really authentic and unique on stage. So I think, these 3 words can describe a lot of people’s experiences during pandemic.” [3]The Daily Guardian

His love for procrastination (“Meri hobby hai letna… aur passion bhi”) led him to his fourth comedy special titled ‘Adrak Ka Swaad,’ which he performed in 2021.
