From winning The Great Indian Laughter Challenge in 2007 to becoming a household name with his television show, Kapil Sharma has come a long way. The actor-comedian, who hails from Amritsar, Punjab, has made his digital debut with the Netflix comedy special Kapil Sharma: I’m Not Done Yet.

Sharma, who has transitioned from television to films, speaks about his life and career in the comedy special. Interestingly, a biopic on his life titled Funkaar is being directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and produced by Mahaveer Jain and Lyca Productions.
Revealing what made him say yes to Netflix, Sharma said, “After all these years on TV, I realized that my story is still beginning and to move on to the next chapter, I had to do something new and different for which Netflix seemed like the perfect place! I’ve seen such unique content from all around the world, Netlfix seems like the best way to reach a global audience!”

He continued, “This special is a completely new zone for me, it’s unlike anything I’ve done before; I’ve drawn stories from my journey, discussed my experiences and shared my path so far. With Kapil Sharma: I’m Not Done Yet, I’ve also paid a tribute to my loved ones. So it’s not content I’m sharing with people, it’s my life! And where else would I want such a wondrous spectacle showcased but on Netflix?”

“And given the current scenario, when the world is moving to digital spaces and OTT platforms, toh mera bhi entry banta hai na! Jokes apart, it has been a learning experience for me — this is far different from what I usually do and I’m excited for the world to see what we’ve created here,” Sharma added.

He currently hosts the sketch-talk programme The Kapil Sharma Show, which is aired on Sony TV.
