Being written about in tabloids almost every day can be tough for some celebrities. Many often complain about their private space being invaded. But things are very different for Kapil Sharma. The actor says he’s adjusted to being in the limelight now.
“I used to react earlier, to people writing about my personal life and not just sticking to my professional life, but then I realised that if people don’t write about us, then who will they write about? Now, if I read about myself, I don’t react to anything. Everyone is busy doing their job and I am doing mine,” says Sharma, whose love life and work have equally been in news.
The actor became a household name with his TV show, Comedy Nights with Kapil, also featuring actors Kiku Sharda, Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar, Sumona Chakravarti and Navjot Singh Sidhu. After a dispute with the TV channel Colors, Sharma — along with the entire cast — launched a new show, The Kapil Sharma Show, on Sony this April.
He’s not only proud but thankful to his co-stars who have been with him since the very start. “We’ve been working together for many years. When you work in a television show, you tend to spend more time with your co-stars than your family. I am grateful to all my co-stars that they love me and have faith in me. I look at my script only after ensuring that my co-stars have the right role and space. We are nothing alone, and everything together,” says Sharma.
