Kapil Sharma wasn’t expecting ‘such positive’ response to debut film ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon’

Kapil Sharma wasn't expecting 'such positive' response to debut film 'Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon'Comedian Kapil Sharma says he didn’t expect the overwhelming response that he has received for his Bollywood debut “Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon”.

“It feels good when your efforts are appreciated. I was not expecting such a positive response,” the “Comedy Nights With Kapil” hero said at a special screening of his debut film here.

“Thanks to everybody for sending so much love and blessings. ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon’ commenced on a very good note and hopefully it will carry on a high note in coming weeks,” added Kapil, who has a fan following of the young and old alike.

Directed by Abbas-Mustan, “Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon” also stars Arbaaz Khan, Elli Avram, Varun Sharma, Amrita Puri, Simran Kaur Mundi and Manjari Phadnis.

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film has grossed Rs.18.75 crore on its first two days.

“Should have a Rs.30 cr [+/-] opening weekend in India, which is PHENOMENAL,” he conjectured on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Kapil is also happy that Bollywood no longer stereotypes an actor.

Talking about the changing facade of Hindi films, he said: “Gone are the days when there was a myth that a comedian cannot play a hero. Today actors want to portray diverse characters. They don’t want to get typecast as a romantic hero only and many actors nowadays like to play negative characters.”

“So, the perception of people has changed and it’s a good thing.”
