Kapil Sharma Controversies: Instances when he made headlines for wrong reasons
Kapil Sharma made a name for himself in this highly competitive B-town industry. He stepped into the glamour world with the help of his humour and his perfect comic timing. And he is fondly monikered as King of Comedy. But his journey was never a smooth sail for him. Here is a list of Kapil Sharma controversies, instances when he made headlines for all wrong reasons.
During his struggle days, he worked in a PCO and also tried his luck in theatres. But when his father was diagnosed with cancer, things got worse. He began working in 3 different shifts to access proper treatment for his father. But unfortunately, he could not save his father’s life. After his father’s demise, he began finding his niche in comedy.
In the second attempt, he got selected in The Great Indian Laughter Challenge Show and won that season. After a lot of struggle, he has finally made a name for himself. Comedians in India still feel that they aren’t given the respect they deserve. But people welcomed Kapil Sharma with all their hearts. After hosting Comedy Nights with Kapil, he became a household name. Today, we all keep our weekends booked for The Kapil Sharma Show and it’s worth it.
Later, he shifted the concept to a different channel and continued to entertain his audience there. But apart from his comedy, his controversies also played a major part in his journey.
