Kapil Sharma recently got emotional during the launch of Amitabh Bachchan show Kaun Banega Crorepati 8. With his mother among the audience, Kapil reminisced his days when he watched the show with his late father.
Kapil, who also took the hot seat for a dummy round, said his father was a fan of KBC and he used to watch the game show with him. "My mother was sitting in the audience and I got emotional, but then I thought I have come here to entertain people," said Kapil after the event.
Kapil admitted being jittery about teaming up with Mr Bachchan, but praised him for "giving space" and added, "This is my third time with Bachchan saab and whenever I work with him, I feel blessed."
The high point of the show was when Big B, marvelling at Kapil's humour, turned to the comedian's mother sitting in the audience and asked, Aaj main bhi aap se poochna chahta hoon ki aapne kya kha ke isse paida kiya tha?
"Daal-phulka," pat came the response of Kapil's mother which had the people in splits, and she then told Big B that his father had a good sense of humour and his son had inherited it from him.
Another funny moment was when Kapil's single status was enquired about and he turned the table by requesting Big B and saying, "Would you please be kind enough to take my proposal to actress Deepika Padukone?"
