Kapil Sharma recalls the time his father passed away

Recently in an interview, Kapil said ‘Till the time my father was conscious, we would talk to each other in the hospital, till then it felt alright and there was hope that he will be ok. Because 2-3 times it had happened that he was brought to Safdarjung hospital and he recovered and we went back to Punjab. But this time when he was taken to ICU, he didn’t come out. So, we couldn’t talk for four days or five days.’ Furthermore, he said “So, on someday I would go to Laxmi Nagar at my uncle’s house to stay because they don’t let you go to the ICU because as my father was not conscious. Those five six days were terrible. I think at that point, I only prayed to God that ‘either you take him away or stop making him suffer.’”

When asked about what would have been his father’s reaction to his success had he been alive, Kapil said, “I feel no one would have been happier that him. He passed away in 2004 and I came in Laughter Challenge in 2007. Sometimes I wonder if God could have given him 4-5 years more but well, we think of many things.”
