Kapil Sharma recalls how Shah Rukh Khan ‘counselled’ him during his bad phase; questioned him about ‘taking drugs’
In an interaction with Aaj Tak, Kapil Sharma recalled the times when he used to cancel shoots and the actor was asked if this behavior left any of the star angry. Responding to it, Kapil added, “Nobody got angry. The format of my show is such that I cannot be late even if I tried. We have to shoot multiple segments throughout the day… But yes, there were times when I backed out at the last moment because I didn’t think I could go through with it… “
Continuing further about the SRK incident, Kapil said, “When Shah Rukh Khan’s shoot got cancelled, he met me three or four days later. He had come to the same studio for something. Maybe, as an artist, he understood what was happening. He is a superstar, after all, and he has seen everything in this industry. He called me to his car, we sat for an hour, and talked. He asked me, ‘Drugs leta hai?‘. I told him I don’t take drugs, but I no longer feel like working. He told me some very nice things, counselled me. But this is one of those situations that you can’t improve unless you yourself want to.”
Kapil Sharma, who continues to host the popular show The Kapil Sharma Show on Sony TV, was last seen in the film Firangi in 2017. As for Zwigato, the film also stars Shahana Goswami, Tushar Acharya, among others.
