Kapil Sharma has resumed work recently. He is back with the new season of his comedy show, The Kapil Sharma Show. The show is also enjoying a decent viewership. However, it was a few months ago when the comedian was forced to pull down his show. Kapil Sharma had to do so due to a spinal injury. Back then, a video of the comedian had surfaced on the internet. It featured Kapil sitting on a wheelchair and making an exit from the airport. A new viral video now shows Kapil Sharma opening up about his spinal injury.

In the video, according to a report in ETimes, the comedian spoke about his spinal injury and spread awareness about it. The comedian revealed he felt helpless and shared how he couldn’t even get up from his bed. Kapil narrated his ordeal in the video.

Kapil Sharma revealed it first happened in 2015. He added, “I did not know much back then, I was in the US at the time. I met a doctor and I was in a lot of pain, so the doctor gave me epidural. I had relief from the pain but the root cause of the problem remained as it was. I then faced it again this January.

Sharma further explained in detail about his spinal injury. The comedian said, “The thing with the spine is that it is the core of everything. Any problem in the spine means everything comes to a standstill. I had many plans, I had to stall and pull down my show off air because of my injury.

Kapil Sharma opened up about witnessing changes in his behaviour. He shared, “Your behaviour changes in such a scenario, you get irritated because you feel helpless. You can’t even get up from the bed. Then you are also told that you may gain weight because you are just lying on the bed. You are asked to go on a liquid…You are already in pain and then you are supposed to eat only salads, the pain doubles up. I faced all these, a lot of things.

Kapil spoke about his spinal injury on the occasion of World Spine Day. He even urged everyone to understand the signs one’s body gives. World Spine Day was celebrated on October 16.

For the unversed, a few months ago, when Sharma had said that he was going on a paternity break. He and his wife welcomed their second child, Trishaan Sharma recently. Kapil last welcomed Juhi Chawla and other Bollywood actresses on his show. He even shared pictures with them.
