"I did a few episodes with Kapil but then I realised I wanted to do something creatively satisfying than just be part of his show for a few minutes. Kapil and I are on good terms and we regularly communicate with each other. I am hoping that he will someday write a role for me because that will justify my talent and creatively satisfy me as an actor. I don't want to work because I have to do something on television."
