Today on Kapil Sharma’s birthday, we dug an old interview with Zoom, where he talked about making his way in the industry without a godfather. The actor also indicated that while nepotism is prevalent, it is always the audience who is the last word on the actor’s development.
He said, “Everyone has their own experience, some come through networks, some find their way. I wouldn’t say that people who enter through Godfather are not talented. However, at the end of the day, it is only your talent that will take you to places. Even if you get a big launch, if you can’t act, the public will not see you. For me, I did theater, then worked in regional channels, then came on national television.

Responding to the interviewer about how it can be challenging to make people laugh when he is feeling low, Kapil said, “A lot depends on how you handle it and sometimes, This is the phase that empowers you. I remember when I was a drama teacher in a college, my father was in the ICU. I was called to be with him but I had to stay back because my students were in an important competition. We were ready. I think it was God who helped me to sail through such a difficult time. “
He also shared an incident when he was informed of the death of a friend five minutes before going on stage. “I was doing Comedy Nights back then and it was a one-night shoot.
