Came into comedy accidentally: Kapil Sharma

New Delhi, Sep 22 (IANS) Kapil Sharma, famed for his funny, spontaneous and witty jokes, says the transition from being a “serious theatre artist” to a comedian happened “accidentally”.

“I think I came into comedy accidentally. I was a serious theatre artist,” Kapil told reporters while promoting his forthcoming debut Hindi film “Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon” here.

The comedian, who got a break in showbiz in 2007 with the television show “The Great Indian Laughter Challenge 3”, added that there was a time when he had a theatre group.

“I have done serious theatre (work) for 10 to 12 years… I have done it in Delhi and also in Amritsar. I even had a theatre group,” said Kapil, who believes that doing comedy is serious acting.

“Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon”, which also features Elli Avram, Manjari Phadnis, Simran Kaur Mundi, Sai Lokurwords, Arbaaz Khan and Varun Sharma, is slated to release on Friday.

Directed by popular duo Abbas-Mustan, the comic family entertainer is produced by Ratan Jain, Ganesh Jain and Abbas-Mustan under their banner Venus Records and Tapes Pvt Ltd in association with Abbas Mustan Films Productions Pvt Ltd.
