When we mention the world of comedy, the first person who we think about is probably Kapil Sharma. Many say that even though many stand-up comedians have made a name for themselves, Kapil Sharma is on another level.
All the peaks Kapil Sharma reached was only through his dedication and hard work. He made his first television appearance in the 2007 show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge and was soon eliminated. Later he came back to the show with a wild card entry and won the show. He is also a great singer and was also praised by Lata Mangeshkar when he participated in the show Star Ya Rockstar in 2011. Later he made a career out of his god gifted comedic skills and launched his own show Comedy Nights with Kapil in 2013. Kapil has also worked in a few Bollywood movies which include Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon, Firangi and Son Of Manjeet Singh.

“Sir please continue offering me good projects”.
Anil then responds satirically and says,
“You know I do support roles, character roles, father roles these days. support the role of your father or brother, tell me.”
Kapil then humorously replied,
“Both our eyes get shut when we laugh, we will even look like father and son. But I am afraid that you may be signed on for the role of the father and I may be the one looking like the father on screen.” later, he also promoted Anil Kapoor on Instagram and captioned “Meet the evergreen superstar @anilskapoor, sir, in #tkss tonight.”
