Ace comedian Kapil Sharma has been in the news these days for all the wrong reasons. The actor recently went abusive on Twitter.
His latest comedy show Family Time With Kapil Sharma, which marked his comeback on the small screen after his film Firangi released last year, has now been put on hold.
In an interview, Kapil says his work will always be his motivation and he will bounce back soon after he takes some “me time” to recuperate.
“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. The reality right now is that I have worked very hard and I love what I do. I just need some time off and I promise you that I will be entertaining you again, as that is what I thrive on,” he told.
Right from his tiff with Sunil, to his health condition, to his temperament and his relationship and its after effects with former girlfriend Preeti Simoes – a lot is being said and written about him the past few weeks and it is certainly been bothering him. He confessed, “What is most damaging and hurtful is when comments are made by those people that you consider your friends and your well-wishers. Over the years, I have always been about my work and that is what continues to drive me. Irrespective of what is said, my work will continue to be my biggest motivation.”
He also shared that it hurts him when he reads things that are not true. “It is hurtful to read things which are not true. I am learning to focus only on my work and not pay heed to any negativity. My work is my worship and that’s what means the most to me.” he said.
There has been much talk about whether Kapil will ever reunite with his former colleagues of “Comedy Nights With Kapil”. “I am very happy for them, and in the same way, I would just want them to be happy for me too. There is ample space for them to grow in the industry and I wish them the very best,” he says.
