As a loyal assistant who never contradicts the boss, and at the same time he tries to curtail him with his presence of mind. The way in which he explains the different types of hammers got a lot of applause from the audience. A speech with hard words is Iron hammering, a smooth speech as rubber hammering, and political speech as mass hammering. Likewise, he defines different types of hammerings to the daughter of his boss. Not only that he tried his level best to co-relate the hammering to epic Ramayana, while Bharata requests Rama to come back and take the throne, but Rama also rejects and convinces him to take his padukaas as a representative of him and rule. Being given patient listening Bharata comments that, brother you would have told just one word that,  “ I CAN’T COME” instead of HAMMERING.
