Actor-comedian Kapil Sharma turns a year older today. The comedian ringed in his birthday lavishly with close friends and family in attendance. Kapil was seen going all musical at the house party along with lady love Ginni Chatrath who joined him and was at her best element. In a detailed chat with Kapil, we asked the comedian about the unprecedented success of The Kapil Sharma Show, his battle with depression, his equation with Salman Khan, a quick health update and working with Bharti Singh and Krushna Abhishek. 

Excerpts from the interview:

After a break, you made a comeback with a sixer, the show, The Kapil Sharma Show, is currently one of the top shows. How does it feel?

Accha lagta hai. The sixer that the show has hit as we launched again is NOT us but the audience and their love. Also, after a point, you don't worry about positioning or anything. We are not competing with anyone. The only competition we have is with ourselves. The only pressure we have is about being able to provide the audience the same kind of entertainment that we have been for the past few years. I think people love us because we have tried our level best to make them laugh and we will continue to do so. My team has been working relentlessly for the same. Even I was waiting to be on stage because I can't be on a break for such a long time. This was my longest break I think.

Having your team back and work together with two new major additions in the form of Krushna Abhishek and Bharti Singh.. how has that been so far?

The support was great. The team was very excited and everyone there doesn't take work as work, it is like festival for them. We all meet, party and work everyday and more than me, my team is excited and that is even seen in their work. We now try avoiding night shoots and mostly keep it scheduled for the day. Even if someone wants to do a night shoot, we usually tell them that we won't be able to because health is the priority. We, of course, make a few adjustments here and there depending on the celebs request but it is fun. 

Reuniting with Krushna and Abhishek must be exciting?

Krushna and I did almost six seasons of Comedy Circus together so obviously I am feeling very good about working with him again. Bharti is like my sister.. we grew up together. Our tuning and timing matches and comes out great onscreen, so it is nice to reunite.

But, Krushna and you were always termed as loggerheads.. does that mean anything now?
 
We were termed loggerheads because there was a competition kind of a format in Comedy Circus. But, we used to enjoy working together even then. Krushna is very nice, his timing is great and I am having so much fun working with him. Also, I feel with time everyone grows up. I used to feel Krushna is very naughty earlier. I even told him that maybe after becoming a father, he has grown more. Even I have grown in the last few years. In fact, All the artists are so perfect that I don't have words for them. I sometimes feel I am not going for work, it feels like play. 
 
Salman Khan has come onboard as the producer for the show. How do you see the equation with him grow?
 
There is mutual respect for each other. I haven't been able to open up so much to Salman but I share a great bond with Sohail [Khan] and Salim Saab. Salman is someone who looks very hard on the outside but he is a very nice person. Dilwale hain. 

Bharti recently called Ginni your lucky charm, you agree?

I believe in this completely. There are so many responsibilities on both professional and personal front which now Ginni takes care of, so I don't have to worry so much. She loves me a lot and makes sure that I keep a track of my health, which I had neglected for sometime. 

A quick health update for fans?

I am fine now. I can't say that I am working on my health but Ginni definitely takes care of me. I am eating healthy and working out too, I am trying to get back to my one and a half year back look. 

Your equation with your mother has been one of a kind. How does she feel seeing you back in your form?

My mom is very happy currently.. she used to worry a lot about me earlier especially because she used to stay a lot in Amritsar. She used to speak to me when any gossip and rumours used to be out.. but now she is happy. After Ginni has come in our family, my mother spends more time with her. Sometimes, I feel they share a deeper bond and tuning than me. Ginni loves my mother a lot and via versa.

What has changed with Ginni now in your life?

I have started eating on the dining table. There is a lot of discipline in my life now, I think. 

You seem to be taking your health seriously now...

As time passes, people mature and the most you learn is from your failures, I believe. When your show is doing great, when you are busy, there is nothing you get to learn from life but when you see a little downfall, that's the time you know more about the people and they get filtered. So, whatever happened then, now I feel, it was for good. 

Here's wishing Kapil, a very happy birthday!
