Bollywood Veteran’s Laud Kapil Sharma for Respecting Icons On His Show
Over the years, Kapil Sharma has not only become more self-confident, he has also matured and tries as far as possible to stay away from controversies. His new show had none other than SRK in its inaugural episode.
A few days back AIB’s Tanmay Bhatt found himself at the receiving end for uploading a video that belittles two greats – Sachin & Lata.
But Bollywood continues to shower affection on Kapil Sharma, as he knows where to draw the line when legends are on his show (although the same cannot be said of ordinary people whom Kapil does target occasionally) .

How Much is Kapil Sharma’s Net Worth
Kapil Sharma first came to the limelight with his funny acts on the very popular shows Great Indian Laughter Challenge & Comedy Circus. Soon he went on to become the most popular comedian on Comedy Circus, and when he realized that he was becoming bigger than the show, he decided to launch his own show ‘comedy Nights with Kapil’. The comedian broke all the records on the small screen, his show ‘Comedy Night with Kapil’ was a hit not only in India but all over the world.
His rise has been more or less meteoric, and in just a few years Kapil Sharma is among the most powerful people in Bollywood. Not bard for a person who came to Mumbai with nothing (btw, he came to Mumbai to become a singer). Kapil has acted in films, and is also getting into film production.
But he was just a simple man (aam aadmi) before being discovered by the industry. Kapil was not born with a silver spoon. He had to go through his share of struggles before finding his place in the sun.
Kapil started from a small theater but is the most expensive host in today. Back in those days, he faced a lot of difficulties in theater. But his hard work, dedication and perseverance paid off.
- Kapil completed his schooling in Amritsar. Kapil’s mom lovingly calls hom Tony. His father was a police constable.
- After college, the famous stand-up comedian joined Punjab Naatshala where he performed and also taught acting. He would also conduct acting workshops in auditoriums in Amritsar.
- After performing in Amritsar, Kapil Sharma tried his luck in Mumbai. He participated in the TV show ‘The great Indian laughter challenge’. Kapil was rejected twice, but he turned out lucky the third time. Kapil went on to win the show in 2007, and from there on there was no looking back for Kapil. Today Kapil is India’s most successful comedian.
- Kapil’s debut Bollywood film was ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon.’
So how much does Kapil Sharma earn?
According to various industry sources…
- As per reports, Kapil Sharma takes home a cool Rs.60-80 lakh per episode for his comedy series.By that calculation, Kapil Sharma makes more money in a month (compared to what some Bollywood Actors charge per movie)
- Kapil Sharma’s net worth is estimated to be around 8-10 million dollars (50-60 crore rupees).
Kapil earns his money from his comedy show, working as anchors and host on various shows/award events, and through endorsements.
What is his prized possession?
Kapil sharma today owns several properties in Mumbai as well as in Amritsar. However, his prized possession is his SUV ‘Range Rover Evoque’. After all, its the most expensive car tat he has ever owned. The SUV is estimated to cost between 70 to 90 lakh rupees.
Well, not bad for the lad from Amritsar who landed in Mumbai with almost nothing.
