It has been more than a decade now since a middle-class boy from Amritsar, Punjab, tried his luck in stand-up comedy, tickled his audience’ funny bones with his impeccable timings and punches, and became the 'King of Comedy' of Indian television. Just like no one imagined that one day The Great Indian Laughter Challenge (season 3) winner would become the 'King of Comedy' of Indian television, nobody thought of the day when he would ruin his own empire, which will eventually lead to his downfall. But soon Kapil turned situations in his favour and rose to fame once again like a phoenix!

Comedy Nights with Kapil became The Kapil Sharma Show, but Kapil Sharma, whom we have loved and adored remained the same! Be it a child or a 70-year-old person, Kapil redefined the concept of family television time and that solely became the reason why he became a household name in no time. A-listers promoting their films on his show, his rapport with the celebrities and his team, his voice, poker face, naughty smile, mocking himself; are a few of the many things with which Kapil made his way into everyone’s hearts.
But one more thing which Kapil Sharma is famous for, is his flirting with the B-town and telly world divas. Be it Sonakshi Sinha, Kriti Sanon, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt or his all-time favourite crush, Deepika Padukone, Kapil has entertained his audience by flirting with the divas. And to mark the completion of show’s 100th episode and to promote the film, Good Newwz, Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani, and Diljit Dosanjh had graced The Kapil Sharma Show. As expected, Kapil had flirted with Kareena on the show. Later, when Saif Ali Khan appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote his film, Jawaani Jaaneman, he schooled Kapil for the same.
In a promo of the upcoming episode of The Kapil Sharma Show, Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Alaya Furniturewalla, Kubbra Sait, Chunky Panday and Farida Jalal graced the show to promote their film, Jawaani Jaaneman. And the Nawab didn’t leave the chance to school Kapil Sharma for flirting with his wife, Kareena Kapoor Khan. When Kapil asks Saif what does Kareena call him, he replied, “Tum shaadi shuda ho na?” When Kapil started randomly justifying his married status, Saif interrupted, “Nahi, isliye pooch raha hoon ki jab pichli baar jab meri biwi aayi thi, Kareena, tum kaafi phail gaye the.” Listening this and then Kapil’s justification which made the audience burst into laughter. Defending himself, Kapil jokingly said, “Aisi baat nahi hai. Aapki nahi, kisi ki bhi biwi aaye main phailta hi hoon.” (Also Read: Alaya F Opens Up On Her Parents, Pooja Bedi And Farhan Furniturewala's Divorce When She Was 5)
In one of the earlier episodes, Ajay Devgn and Kajol had graced the show to promote their film, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Kapil had counted infinite talents of Ajay which include acting, production, direction, voice overs, and how he even owns a few theatres, and had added, “Sir, humne toh naara suna tha... sabka saath, sabka vikaas. Yeh aapne khud ka naara banaya ki, apna hi saath, apna hi vikaas. Itne saare kaam, how?” In reply, Ajay had said, “Mujhe ek baat bata, tere 103 episode hogae. Tune kisiko idhar aane diya? Yahin khada hai na, chipka hua. Tu kyun nahi sabka vikaas kar raha?” Ajay’s joke had left everyone laughing and Archana Puran Singh too, had added that Kapil takes away much of what they make through the show. Kapil, who felt cornered, had retorted, “Loot lo aa jao, sab hi loot lo. Ek bachhi ka baap hoon, ghar chalana hota hai.”
As their conversation went further, Kapil Sharma had questioned Kajol about Ajay Devgn and asked her to rate him accordingly out of 100. To which, Ajay had said, “Yaar mujhe kyun?” Again, referring to how he has to make more money now since he has a daughter, Kapil had replied, “Episode hai sir, kuch to poochna hi hai. To yehi pooch lete hai. Ghar bhi chalana hai sir, ek bachhi ka baap hoon.” Ajay, in reply, had trolled Kapil and had said, “Bachhi badi ho ke yeh sab episodes dekhegi na, toh bohot maaregi. Bolegi mere paida hote hi mere naam se bheek maangne lag gaye.” His statement left everyone burst into laughter. Kapil had retorted, “Bolegi papa yeh sab kar ke aapne mujhe paala hai.” (Also Read: Ekta Kapoor Makes Fun Of Her Son, Ravie Kapoor's Hairstyle And Compares It With Salman Khan's)
