For Kapil Sharma, 2016 was a year of high drama. On one hand, he moved on from his Colors show Comedy Nights with Kapil to The Kapil Sharma Show on Sony TV. On the other hand, he courted controversy when he claimed on social media that an official of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation had asked him for a bribe. The civic body in turn accused him of illegal construction at his properties and flouting environmental norms. His popularity, however, remains unaffected. He is now working on two films, 13 August 1947 and Firangi.
Fast Fact: Sharma was a theatre artiste for over 10 years in Amritsar and Delhi before making it big on television.
