Comedian and actor, Kapil Sharma rose to fame after winning the stand-up comedy reality show, The Great Indian Laughter Challenge season 3, in 2007. He is currently a household name in India, courtesy of his popular talk show, The Kapil Sharma Show. Kapil has been riding high on the professional front and enjoys a massive fan following. He often makes headlines for his personal and professional life and grabs attention for his adorable pictures with his family.
Recently, Kapil Sharma grabbed many eyeballs after a video of him swiftly hiding his cigarettes surfaced online. In a video shared by a Reddit user, Kapil can be seen sitting in a luxury restaurant with his friends and family. An eagle-eyed user noticed that the comedian had placed a box of cigarettes on the table. However, as soon as he noticed the camera, Kapil swiftly removed the box of cigarettes from the table and quickly hid them in his palm. Later, he was seen keeping it aside.
Now that the video is being circulated on the internet, it has garnered mixed reactions from social media users. While a section of netizens expressed their shock to see Kapil with cigarettes, others asked people to let the actor live the way he wants. Reacting to the video, one user commented, “It is an instinct when you see someone recording", another one wrote, “If he leaves it out, people will say that he’s being a bad influence lmao. Let people live". Meanwhile, a third fan wrote, “Chalo at least he’s not promoting unhealthy stuff in the name of swagger". Check out the comments below:
Kapil Sharma tied the knot with his childhood sweetheart, Ginni Chatrath, on December 12, 2018, and the madly-in-love couple is blessed with two kids, Anayra and Trishaan. Once in an interview with Aaj Tak, Kapil lauded his wife and mentioned that she didn't face problems while adjusting to his acting background after their marriage. Citing the reason behind the same, the comedian shared that his wife hailed from a well-to-do family, and since both of them are Punjabis, they bonded well. Kapil also revealed that he respects Ginni a lot as she stood by him through thick and thin. Kapil also added that he hopes to make more money so that his kids might have a different experience while growing up with privilege.
Earlier, in an interview with AajTak, Kapil Sharma opened up about his successful professional life. When the host mentioned that Kapil is worth Rs. 300 crores, the comedian laughed at the suggestion. Reflecting on the same, he said that he has a house and a car, along with a beautiful family that lives with him. However, Kapil mentioned that he still thinks of himself as a middle-class salaried man but his wife, Ginni Chatrath, loves to spend on things. In his words:
“I have also lost a lot of money… But, truthfully, I don’t think about all this. I know that I have a house, and a car, I have a family, and that’s all that matters. Of course, I’m no saint. I won’t turn down good money. But even today, meri soch salary wali hai. My wife likes spending on things, but I don’t. But she comes from money, so it’s different.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Kapil Sharma is currently hosting his comedy show.
