Kapil Sharma is a renowned comedian and is very well known in every Indian household for his proficient comedy skills.He has worked as a host in Jhalak Dikh la Ja and now has a show of her own name particularly known as Comedy night with Kapil Sharma which is aired on Sony Liv.
Recently Kapil Sharma has opened up about the ups and downs he faced to reach where he is today and How he over came it and also reveals the reason behind shutting down the show that gained popularity once. Talking about the show that went off air he said it has taught him much“At that time, I stopped trusting people. They would say something on my face and something else behind my back. I shut my show down even though nobody asked me to do so,”
It was the crucial face of his life wherein he left hope and got depressed. At that mode of his life inspite of all the things happening around everyone left him but his wife boldly stood for him and motivated him to start the show once again. He expressed his generosity for her wife for standing as a“strong pillar” as his mother “had no idea about what mental illness is, she is an innocent person from a village.”
Further he said “I decided to respond to naysayers through my show. I understood it was my show which got me the love of the audience and recognition. Till when will you keep fighting with people on Twitter? (laughs). But it was that time that taught me a lot.”
In one of the interviews Kapil told RJ Nishant that he was contacted for hosting Jhalak Dikh La Ja alongside Maniesh Paul “I was called to the Colors office. They asked me if I will host Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. I asked them what will I have to do. They said you and Maniesh Paul will host it. I said fine and they asked me to meet BBC, the production house.”
He further added, “I went there and there, after looking at me, she said, ‘Aap bahut mote hain. Aap thoda wazan kam karo (You are very fat. Lose some weight).’ I told Colors, ‘What is all this?’ Then the channel called her and told her, ‘the guy is good, let’s get him on board as host, will see about the weight later.’ So, I asked them, ‘Why don’t you make a comedy show?”
After that Kapil Reflected on himself as to what he should do either he should be the host with Manish Paul at the set of JhalakDikhlaaJaa or do something different so he thought for a while he said“I enjoyed doing standup, sketch comedy, costume comedy. So I planned to bring together all the elements I am good at, put them in one show. I made the pitch, they asked me how long it would be. I gave them the lowdown. After standup, gags, celebrity interviews and all, five minutes’ time still remained. But when the show was shot, it went up to 120 minutes. They wanted only 70 minutes of content. It became difficult for them to edit it.”
