From being the undisputed comedy king of India only a few months ago to finding himself in utter ruins, actor-comedian Kapil Sharma is desperately struggling to regain his lost glory.
When he was spotted outside the Mumbai Airport a few days ago, Janta Ka Reporter reported how Kapil looked beyond recognition. Apart from his excess weight, the other striking features were his eyes and swollen face. This, his friends then said, had been a result of his excessive drinking. In depression the comedian actor seems to have turned to alcohol for solace.
Now, another shocking photo of Kapil has emerged and his fans on social media are aghast primarily because the deterioration in his physical appearance told a significant story of how his life had taken a turn for the worse.
Attired in a hoody tracksuit and yellow T-shirt with a cricket cap on his head, Kapil appeared to be standing inside a supermarket in Amsterdam, when his photo was clicked. Kapil has clearly gained a lot of weight as evidently suggested by his protruding potbelly.
This has led fans wishing him ‘Get Well Soon’ on social media platforms.
The actor had recognised that he needed to work on his fitness. Speaking to IANS in April, he had said, “I think I need some me time and need to recuperate. I’ve been working too hard for too long. There is a lot in the pipeline and lot of new exciting projects which I will talk about soon.”
He had recently made a brief Twitter appearance, when he promised his fans to return to his old shape, but the latest photos don’t give any indication of a recovery. If anything, they would make his fans sad that a person, who put a smile on millions of faces around the world has himself become a symbol of sadness.
We wish the talented comedian all the best and hope that he reclaims his glory as the undisputed comedy king on Indian TV.
The comedian had recently left for a holiday to Europe with his rumoured girlfriend Ginni.
There was a time when comedian-actor Kapil Sharma ruled the TV industry with even top Bollywood actors making a beeline to appear on his show, The Kapil Sharma Show. Making an appearance on his show was deemed as an achievement for any celebrity. You hadn’t really arrived until you appeared on his show.
But, fame and success, when not handled with responsibility, can result in spectacular fall from grace. One small episode of arrogance is capable of pushing even the most powerful into oblivion forever. That’s precisely what seems to have happened with comedian Kapil Sharma.
A mid-air brawl with his trusted lieutenants namely Sunil Grover aka Doctor Mashood Gulati and Ali Asgar aka Nani triggered the beginning of what was termed as Kapil’s end. Sunil and Ali quit the show along with Chandan Prabhakar and Sugandha Mishra. All four were the mainstay of his show.
His show suddenly started to lose the much-needed TRP, thereby adversely affecting both his health and the health of his TV show. Soon, he earned notoriety for not turning up for the shoot even as his top celebrity guests waited for him in utter exasperation.
This led to Sony TV taking the show off air. Kapil came with a reincarnated version of his show on the same channel few months later. But Family Time with Kapil Sharma lacked the spark that his previous shows had. This show did not last beyond three episodes. People familiar to him had said that the actor had slipped into deep depression by then. “That was the reason why he could not turn up for the shoot even for Family Time With Kapil,” one of his friends had said.
