Kapil Sharma rose to fame with The Great Indian Laughter Challenge’s second season where he emerged as the winner. Now for him, his life took a full circle and he landed on the same stage but this time as a guest. The comedian turned actor marked his presence on the show and shared the stage with superstar Akshay Kumar, who is the super-judge on the comedy show. Kapil also performed a small act for the judges and left the audience in splits.
After the wrap up of The Kapil Sharma Show, this was kind of a comeback for Kapil on television, and it was a moment of celebration for the actor and his fans. A while ago, Kapil had shared his emotions about coming back on the stage which has given him so much in life. He wrote, “Felt like home at laughter challenge @StarPlus. Thank you so much for love and respect. And don’t forget to catch #firangi on 1st December #FirangiOnDec1”
Recently, in conversation with indianexpress.com, Kapil spoke about how comedy happened just by chance. “I used to do theater. Much serious plays and acting. So, when people got to know that I am auditioning for a comedy show, they would tell me I cannot do it. But I guess, whosoever is a good actor, only he can pull off comedy. That’s how Laughter Challenge happened.”
On being asked if he thinks he has become a true blue Bollywood actor post his second film Firangi, Kapil quipped, “Everyone has a speciality. If I would romance like Shah Rukh Kahn and perform actions like Akshay Kumar, I would laugh on my own self. So, in this film too, I have kept elements which suit me well. I will do only what suits me.”
