Stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma says he feels lucky to be making his Bollywood debut with filmmaker duo Abbas-Mustan’s upcoming romantic-comedy “Kis Kisko Pyaar Karu”.
The 34-year-old “Comedy Nights With Kapil” star never thought he would get launched in the film industry by the directors, who have hits like “Race”, “Race 2” and “Aitraaz” to their credit. “I am feeling blessed that in my first film I got the opportunity to work with the most talented and humble directors Abbas-Mustan. I had positive feeling doing this film. I never thought I will get a chance to be directed by them. I feel happy and proud,” Kapil told PTI.
As directors, “Kis Kisko Pyaar Karu” marks Abbas-Mustan’s first movie in a genre other than action-thriller. The actor feels the film’s plot of a man having three wives and a girlfriend is exciting. “In Bollywood, we have seen concept of two wives in lot of films. For this film we have three wives and a girlfriend… It is a bit complicated but we had fun. I enjoyed reading the script and I was excited about doing the film.”
When asked if he would take bid goodbye to TV for his career in films, the actor said, “TV has given me everything. I will keep doing both, TV and films.”
Kapil, who is back on his popular show after a two-week break owing to bad health, said he is happy with the “blessings” “Comedy Nights” has received. “I am happy with the love and appreciation I got for comedy for my show ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’. I am happy with the blessings that we are getting for the show.” “Kis Kisko Pyaar Karu”, also starring Manjari Phadnis, Amrita Puri, Elli Avram, Simran Kaur Mundia and Varun Sharma, will hit theatres on September 25.
