Kapil Sharma wants to do More than just Comedy; Would you like to see him in that role?
Kapil SHarma is undoubtedly one of the most adored comedians of today’s times. He is funny, witty and humor comes to him naturally. His show on Sony TV, The Kapil Sharma Show has done brilliantly well in terms of TRPs and has always been one of the most watched shows on TV. With his impeccable comic timing and witty one-liners, Kapil Sharma has become synonymous with laughter on Indian television.
The actor-comedian, however, has not just been doing comedy. He has also featured in a few films, including two in Bollywood — Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon and Firangi. In a recent chat with BT, Kapil expressed that he just doesn’t want to be tied down to comedy. He wasnts to do more, explore more. He said, “Mann hai bahut films karne ka. I have done two films (in Hindi), and both turned out to be amazing experiences — shooting in various locations with talented co-stars. Nowadays, there is a demand for a lot of content and this is a good time for artistes, as there are so many platforms and more opportunities.”
Interestingly, while it is comedy that has made Kapil a household name, he says that he wants to try serious roles. “Mujhe chance mila toh serious roles bhi karna hai, I want to explore serious roles. Not many people know ki maine apne career ki shuruaat serious roles se hi ki thi. Jab main comedy nahin karta tha, jab theatre karta tha, tab maine comedy plays kiye hi nahi. Mere saare plays serious the. Now, I hope I get a chance to do a serious role,” he shares. Addressing filmmakers in the industry, in his usual tongue-in-cheek style, Kapil adds, “Aap itna bhi mujhe funny na samjhe, main bahut serious aadmi hoon, toh mujhe aap zaroor le serious role ke liye.”
When asked if there are any movies in the pipeline, he says, “There are a couple of projects in the scripting stage, I hope they get finalised soon.”
