Actor Yogesh Tripathi who hails from a place called Rath near Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh become a household name after he started playing Daroga Happu Singh in Benaifer and Sanjay Kohli’s Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai. Yogesh is also playing the character of Choote who owns a salon in Edit II productions new show Jijaji Chhat Par Hai.  Speaking on his career in the entertainment industry Yogesh says,”My family is full of teachers and I am the only actor in the family. I am the youngest son and always had an inclination towards acting. I went to Lucknow and was there for five years and done lot of theatre. Came to Mumbai in 2005 and since then working here. I have done quite a number of commercials and few of them are quite popular.” After working in shows like Balika Badhu, FIR, Meri Dolna Teri Angna Yogesh grabbed the opportunity and started playing the Daroga in Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai. Today the whole nation knows him as Happu Singh. Asked him about the success and popularity he got from this character Yogesh says,”A successful show you can only make if the writing is good and the direction is perfect, am happy that I have got people like writer Manoj Santoshi and our director Shashank Bali who both knows how you can extract best from an actor. Its the dialogues and the scene which made you popular.” Commenting on his character in Jijaji Chhat Par Hai Yogesh adds,”Chhote, a local Barber who in a way is the gossip king of the Mohalla. He owns a saloon. He is the one who triggers fights and passes on irrelevant information in the mohalla.” So what has been your reference point for this role? “After playing a funny inspector I wanted to do something different, am happy that Choote’s character came on my way. Right from look to dialogue throw to acting style everything is different. Choote does everything together from shaving someone in his salon to chatting and gossiping about someone. I have seen videos to catch the mannerism of a barber. The language which I am speaking is completely different from what I am speaking as Happu Singh. In Bhabhiji I am speaking the mix of everything but in Jijaji I am speaking local flavour of Delhi.” Yogesh is hopeful audience will love him in Jijaji Chhat Par Hai too.
