It is said that ‘hard work is the road to success’ and it is completely true for India’s favourite comedian Kapil Sharma. The actor-comedian turned 37 on April 2 with hopes of having a long innings in the industry. The actor had his brief share of ups and downs in life. Coming from a regular middle class family of Amritsar, Sharma has made quite a mark for himself in the tinsel town.
Kapil Sharma’s father was a head police constable and mother was a housewife. He has a younger sister who got married couple of years back. Sharma has spent a major portion of his adult life performing in theaters and this is where his heart lies.
