Mumbai: His journey from being a standup comedian to a TV show producer has been an inspiring one. He has the uncanny ability to tickle people’s funny bone with his impeccable comic timing and hilarious gags. Kapil Sharma is definitely the man of the moment, for he has achieved what millions aspire to.

After signing a three-film contract with Bollywood’s most reputed banner- Yash Raj Films- Kapil’s popularity has only multiplied. However, the man will have to cut down on his TV venture in order to look after his film commitments.

Fans of popular TV show ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ will presumably be left disappointed, with the show reverting to its one-episode-per-week format yet again.

Kapil has managed to rise above all controversies he has been embroiled in. He bounced back stronger after the set of his show in Filmcity, Mumbai, was reduced to ashes, after a short circuit in September last year.

He made headlines after Sunil Grover (who played Gutthi) in CNWK chose to opt out following differences with the makers of the show.

He was also slammed by a Woman’s Rights organization for his joke on a pregnant woman in one of the episodes of CNWP.

But Kapil has only emerged stronger. He is a powerhouse of talent and has miles to go. Here’s wishing him success for his film career and may he excel on the big screen too!
