Jasmeet Singh Bhatia is one of the most popular actors that rose to fame with the rise of digital India. He is best known for his comedy sketches with The Viral Fever, The Screen Patti, Girliyapa, and The Timeliners.
TSP’s comedy series ‘Jizzy-Veerji Show’ is what torpedoed Bhatia towards nation-wide internet fame and he has happily accepted the association with his partner Veerji in the hilarious sketches that run on bouts of humour and sarcasm.
Jasmeet Singh Bhatia was born on 7th July 1993 in New Delhi. The 26-year-old actor is an engineering graduate. During his college days, he was developing a YouTube channel called QLC, which attracted plenty of eyes his way. The channel also helped Bhatia learn about his own potential and capabilities.
Bhatia started working at Infosys and after nearly a year of working there, a golden opportunity presented itself and Bhatia did not hesitate in grabbing it. TVF had posted a vacancy post on their Facebook page and Bhatia sent them his resume. He was accepted by TVF as an intern and the rest is history.
Besides being an actor, Bhatia is also a stand-up comedian. Humour came to him naturally so it was only appropriate that he decided to take up stand-up comedy. He said in an interview that he was never bound to a group of friends either in school or college, so he would just stand in circles and crack jokes about random things. He admits to having had the comedic flair but no idea how to take it through as he lacked the confidence required for comedy. But watching a ton of western sit-coms really helped him learn how to better utilize his comedic flair to actually get started as a comedian.
Bhatia once performed live for a crowd of over two thousand people at the cultural fest of Thapar University which had been a great experience for him as a budding comedian. He has also had some experience with opening for Vipul Goyal on the tour of ‘Humorously Yours’.
He is also a creative consultant and writer at TVF besides acting in comedic sketches. He learned screenplay writing while working there. He admitted to the experience and skills that he gained during his time at TVF which helped nurture and groom the artist in him.
Bhatia has also worked in a Bollywood movie ‘Ok Jaanu’ (2017) that was produced by Dharma Productions. The experience at the set helped teach him how to handle getting star-struck.
