Kapil Sharma spoke at length about his initial days in Mumbai. He opened up about all kinds of career options he explored before landing into comedy. His comedy special, Kapil Sharma: I’m Not Done Yet, will soon be streaming on Netflix.
Ahead of the launch of his show, Kapil recalled his initial struggling days. He said, “I had no plan as such. People will laugh if I tell them how I started. Maine pehle BSF ke liye try ki, fir army mein gaya, my father and uncles were part of the police force. But papa kaafi musicians ko jante the and ended up introducing me to them. He wanted me to do something big or maybe creative in life.”
The comedian further added, “I remember the first time I came to Mumbai with my friends. We would roam around Juhu Beach looking out for directors as if they had nothing better to do in life. From then to now – things have changed so much. That’s Mumbai, that’s what it does. It gives scooter walas like me an opportunity to stand on a stage and entertain people. Mujhe yaad hai mai bilkul naya tha Mumbai mein and was unaware of what was coming my way, making my way through the bustling streets of Mumbai, only dreaming of being where I am now.”
