Interview: Kapil Sharma on why Comedy Nights with Kapil is better than Koffee with Karan
Comedian Kapil Sharma is at the peak of his career and he touted as the superstar of Television. Kapil’s journey from nobody to India’s favorite comedian could be an inspiration for many. His show Comedy Nights with Kapil, which is inspired from the popular British show The Kumar's at No.42. Bitto, has become the India's highest rated non-fiction TV show.
Since June (when Comedy Nights with Kapil started), there have been many stars including Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar and Imran Khan who have promoted their films on the show.
Kapil Sharma talks about his show, personal life and Bollywood stars.
Your comedy show on television is a huge hit. Did you ever imagine it would be so successful?
I believed in our show. But we never thought it would become so successful. I want to make a special mention of Dharamji .I wanted him to come on my first episode of Comedy Nights With Kapil. But his PR team turned us down. Dharamji was traveling and his schedule was tight. But I wanted my show to begin with Dharamji.
My father, who is no more, admired him greatly. In fact everyone from Punjab hero-worships him. So I went to meet him personally. I just said one thing to him. I said, I had decided if I ever have my show I’d start with Dharamji. He took not even a minute to agree to come on my show. He came on the show, and blessed it saying it will run for years. So my show is blessed.
