Kapil Sharma was a struggling theatre artist before becoming a celebrity. The comedian began his acting career during his college days in Amritsar. Apparently, he struggled for ten years to make a mark. He rose to fame after winning the comedy reality television show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge in 2007.
Many of them think Abbas-Mustan's Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon is Kapil Sharma's debut Hindi film. According to Spotboye report, Kapil kick-started his Bollywood career with Anees Bazmee's film. The film was produced by Boney Kapoor. The film was announced in 2008 and then tentatively titled 'It's My Life'. The film stars Harman Baweja, Genelia D'Souza and Nana Patekar in the lead role. Apparently, Kapil played Nana Patekar's servant in the film.
Unfortunately, the film didn't release at that time. According to the latest reports, the film will hit the theatres after Sridevi's film Mom is released.
Also, the entertainment portal reports that the actor had also played a cameo role on Gurpreet Singh Waraich aka Ghuggi's music video. Ghuggi is a comedian-singer turned AAP member. When Kapil was start of his career, Ghuggi was popular comedian. Apparently, Kapil Sharma decided to campaign for Ghuggi in this year's Punjab Assembly elections, which we assume is a gesture of gratitude as Kapil started his career with Ghuggi's music video.
In the video, Ghuggi is dressed as a groom and leads the baraat, while Kapil is part of a trio of tambourine players (back-up to the lead singer).
Kapil has come a long way. But, since past few days, he is grabbing headlines for the wrong reasons because of his fight with Sunil Grover. Kapil's The Kapil Sharma Show is in trouble as Sunil has stopped shooting for the show. Recently, there were rumours that Sunil would return to the show soon. We hope that the issue is sorted out soon and the show comes back to track!
