Photographer Hum Jayega

Once Hum Jayega was working as a photographer in a photo studio.

One day, he had an assignment to take photos in a function. It was the time before the digital camera when photos were recorded in photo film instead of memory cards. While Hum Jayega was inserting the photo film in his camera, the film roll dropped off his hand and rolled (as the name itself was a film roll) away, landing exactly underneath of a woman wearing a saree.


Hum Jayega hesitated for a moment but approached the woman and said, "Could you please lift up the saree so that I can take photos."

Hum Jayega says, "Yes, why not? What is the price?".

The man told, "Give me a thousand rupees and I’ll go get a ladder."

The man took the thousand and disappeared.

Having waited for several hours, Hum Jayega figured out that he was cheated and went to his place, feeling sad.

The next day, Hum Jayega was again walking along the same street, and the same man asks him if he wants to buy the clock. "Give me a thousand rupees and I’ll go get a ladder."

If my father were a …

One day when Hum Jayega was driving a bus, a small kid boarded his bus and sat beside him.

The kid talking to himself said, “If my dad were an elephant and my mom were a female elephant, I would have been a baby elephant.”

Hum Jayega was listening. The boy continued, “If my dad were a horse and my mother a female horse, I would have been a baby horse.”

That was too much when the kid started murmuring again … Fully annoyed Hum Jayega asked:

“What would you have been if your father was a drunkard and your mother a prostitute?

The kid replied, “A bus driver !”


Humjayega and his wife went to get a divorce:

Officer: “Why do you want to get a divorce? What happened?”
Humjayega: “She cheated on me.”
Officer : “How? What did Suntali did?”
Humjayega: “She told she will come back in two hours and returned back in 15 minutes.”
Officer : “What’s the big deal?”
Humjayega: “Hee… hee…. hee…. what to say?…. I was with Bimali.”
