Stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma has come a long way. From earning a meagre income to being constantly in the limelight, the journey of the most sought after comedian in the Bollywood industry has been a tough one. A perfect rags to riches story, he is today at the 11th position in Forbes Indian in the list of Highest Paid Celebrities as of 2016. While his voyage towards dreams has been marred with controversies many-a-times he is loved for his comedy. While he remains to be in the bad books of people, he runs the most successful comedy show in the country, The Kapil Sharma Show. Born on April 2, 1981, Kapil turns 36 today. The Team of NLC wishes the Comedy King ‘A Very Happy Birthday’
Love or hate him, but you can’t ignore Kapil Sharma. The actor-comedian is celebrating his 36th birthday today. Over the years, he has certainly become one of the most loved men in the country. His jokes and banter have become a huge part of an Indian household. Kapil saw a 206% jump in his income last year making him the highest paid comedian in India.
However, last few weeks have been very tough for him. His recent spat with Sunil Grover has put him in the bad light. Following the negative publicity, other comedians in the show, Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar also left it. He had to face a lot of unwanted criticism. ‘The Kapil Sharma Show hit the lowest TRP in its entire history last week.
Although crisis management was carried out, the likes of Raju Shrivastava and Sunil Pal were roped in, but the show seems to lack its earlier charm. These days he is in the news for all the wrong reasons. The whole episode has created an altogether negative image of the comedy king in the media and in the minds of his fans.
Whatever has happened in the last few weeks, we can’t deny the fact that Kapil has been making us laugh for years now and in this bad phase, the comedy king needs his fans by his side.
We hope Kapil Sharma has a great year ahead and comes out of the mess that he is in
