Kapil Sharma is a stand-up comedian, television presenter, actor and producer best known for his comedy shows The Kapil Sharma Show and Comedy Nights With Kapil. Kapil shot to fame by winning the stand-up comedy show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge in 2007 and there was no looking back for this super talented Punjabi chap. He then participated in Comedy Circus and went on to win six seasons of the show. Soon after, he had a comedy show running after his own name. 2017, however, turned out to be fatal for Kapil’s shining career. He got into a brawl with his The Kapil Sharma Show co-star Sunil Grover on a flight from Melbourne to Mumbai, which lead to almost all important members of the show parting ways with Kapil. After managing to run the show for a few weeks in the absence of his key partners, Kapil recently called it quits and the show was taken off air. His father Jeetendra Kumar Punj, who died of cancer in 2004, was a head constable in the Punjab Police. His mother Janak Rani is a homemaker and would often accompany him on the sets of his show.
