Kapil Sharma became a household name with his talk show, Comedy Nights With Kapil, and looks like he meant it when he said ‘I am not done yet’. The comedian will soon be seen playing key roles in a number of Bollywood films and one of them is already in the production stage. According to the latest reports, Kapil is in talks with producer Vipul D Shah, who was previously in the news for being a co-producer on the sequel of OMG.
For the unversed, Kapil was previously in the news when his stand up special dropped on Netflix and was trending on the platform within minutes. During this special, the actor spoke about a series of controversial incidents from his life, including drunk tweeting and political personalities.

According to a report by Pinkvilla, Kapil Sharma might be the one to bag the lead role in Vipul D Shah’s next comedy film. The two had previously collaborated for the show Comedy Circus which was a massive hit during its time.

Vipul has offered Kapil a comedy film, and discussions around it are in advanced stage. It will be an entertaining film, but the schedule and other logistics will be finalised once they formalise the project.”
