Comedian actor Kapil Sharma faded into oblivion after his TV shows on Sony lost considerable viewership forcing the channel to pull the plug on the programmes.
The comedian, who once brought smiles on millions of faces in India and abroad, could not cope with the failure as the sudden loss of fame and earnings began it take their toll on him. Few months later, when Mumbai's paparazzi spotted him outside the airport, he looked beyond recognition.
He made a brief appearance in June, when he informed his fans that he was trying to change his lifestyle to reclaim his lost glory. But, Kapil failed to keep his word as his next photo, taken during a holiday in Europe, showed him in even worse condition.
The comedian once again took a sabbatical until Raksha Bandhan, his photos with family members went viral.
On Monday, the comedian-actor took to Twitter to inform his fan about his new project. Announcing his first Punjabi film, Kapil shared the first look of Son of Manjeet Singh, with a caption, ""Son of Manjeet Singh" First Look🙏🙏 #12thOct @SumeetSinghM @Saga_Hits @SCMPicture @GurpreetGhuggi @vikramgrover201"
In the poster, shared by Kapil, comedian actor Gurpreet Ghuggi is seen holding another actor who plays his son in the film. Son of Manjeet Singh co-producer Sumeet Singh had also tweeted, "Proud to associate with @KapilSharmaK9, the man with an unparalelled comic timing, to present a gripping tale titled Son of Manjeet Singh."
The film is directed by Vikram Grover.
As promised by Kapil in June, he's indeed hired a fitness trainer to return to his old self. There are also reports that he may return to TV soon as his discussions with the channel are in the final stage.
Meanwhile, going by Kapil's Twitter activity in the last two days, his fans would be delighted to detect a tinge of the comedian's old self. Other than sharing the news links on his next venture, Kapil also shared a photo with a Canadian woman politician from the past with a caption, "ust found a beautiful picture of both of us @christyclarkbc .. thought to share with u.. #vancouver #canada u r missing in this pic @KapilKumria Paji."
