Kapil Sharma is Unrecognizable in His Latest Public Appearance!
The king of standup comedy Kapil Sharma was out of the lime light for quite a long time and was reportedly staying outside the country following his abusive rant on Twitter in April.
Sharma, returned to Mumbai on Tuesday night. The actor-comedian was spotted at the airport with his pet, an adorable furry dog. Sharma looked quite different in track pants and tee.
Kapil made headlines drawing bad press when an audio call in which he was heard hurling abuses at a journalist, when the call recording was shared on social media. Many of his fans were shocked to see this side of their favourite entertainer.
He had a mid-air fight with his colleague, comedian Sunil Grover during their return flight from Melbourne.
When the controversy gathered media attention, he posted on his Facebook page to explain the events also apologizing to Grover for his actions on his Twitter handle.
Grover, however, took offense and posted a message advising Sharma to handle his fame better and respect his co-actors. Subsequently, Grover, along with Ali Asgar, Chandan Prabhakar, Sugandha Mishra quit The Kapil Sharma Show. The show brought unprecedented fame to both Sharma and Grover.
Kapil also featured in films, but then returned to television with his new show Family Time With Kapil Sharma, which didn’t get the expected response.
Sharma was rated the most popular Indian television personality in April 2016 by Ormax Media. Forbes India ranked him at 18th position in their Celebrity 100 list in the year 2017 with an income of Rs. 48 crore.

Sharma was nominated for the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and was invited to the Rashtrapati Bhavan by President Pranab Mukherjee in September 2015 to acknowledge his contribution for the same.
