Kapil Sharma Opens Up About His Journey & Where He Started From, Calls Himself A ‘Scooter Wala’

We all know how Kapil Sharma is today – a successful comedian and a TV show host. Surely, today his financial condition is way better than what used to be because, as many people might know, Kapil came from humble beginnings.

According to Hindustan Times, Kapil Sharma revealed that initially, he planned on joining the army. He tried to apply for the Border Security Force (BSF) and then the army since his father and uncles served the police force. However, things took a separate turn.

“People will laugh if I tell them how I started. Maine pehle BSF ke liye try ki, fir army mein gaya (I tried for BSF first then went for the army), my father and uncles were part of the police force. But papa kaafi musicians ko jante the (dad knew a lot of musicians) and ended up introducing me to them. He wanted me to do something big or maybe creative in life.”

He went on to reveal that in Mumbai, he used to look out for directors and seek opportunities. But then, ‘Mumbai’ gave a ‘scooter wala’ like him an opportunity to entertain people.

“I remember the first time I came to Mumbai with my friends. We would roam around Juhu Beach looking out for directors as if they had nothing better to do in life. From then to now – things have changed so much. That‚Äôs Mumbai, that‚Äôs what it does. It gives scooter walas like me an opportunity to stand on a stage and entertain people. Mujhe yaad hai mai bilkul naya tha Mumbai mein (I remember how new I was to Mumbai) and was unaware of what was coming my way, making my way through the bustling streets of Mumbai, only dreaming of being where I am now.”

Started from the bottom now he’s here!
