Yes! Your guessing is right. We are talking about none other than Kapil Sharma. In a bid to promote his show Comedy Nights With Kapil (CNWK), this stand-up comedian appeared on the premiere show of Salman Khan's Bigg Boss 7. The funniest English speaking man tickled the funny bones of audience with his broken English. Salman, who is known for his perfect comedy timing, also joined hands with him.
As he entered the stage, he said, "Thank you girls and guys." Amidst the cheers of the viewers, he continued, "Will you just shut up. I just love you the way you love me." Then he moved to girls row and pointing out a girl, he uttered, "Hey! Beautiful lady you are distracting me."
