Kapil Sharma’s USP is his wholesome family-oriented image. And he won’t utter one single syllable that goes against his clean image.
In fact team members of The Kapil Sharma Show reveal how on innumerable occasions Kapil has said no to jokes gags and dialogues with double meaning.
When he appeared on Koffee With Karan he refused to answer questions related to his sex life.
So rigid is Kapil about his no-obscenity clause that he didn’t think twice about turning down Aditya Chopra.
According to original plans stand-up superstar Kapil Sharma was to make his debut with Bank Chor, the raunchy heist comedy from YashRaj films.
However Kapil opted after reading the script. “Every other line was sleazy. And there were double meanings and innuendos even in the title of the film. Kapil said no to Bank Chor thereby daring toanrtagonise Aditya Chopra. Not that Kapil cares. He made his large-screen debut with the comedy Kiss Kissko Pyar Karoon and is now readying his second release Firangi.”
As for Bank Chor Riteish Deshmukh happily stepped into Kapil’s shoes and mouthed all the risqué dialogues without scruples.
