Comedian and TV host Kapil Sharma on Wednesday announced his Netflix special titled ‘Kapil Sharma: I’m Not Done Yet’ with a video on his social media handles. The special show is slated to premiere on January 28 in which the star comedian will be seen in a never-seen-before avatar.
As part of the promotional video shared by the streaming giant, Kapil is heard saying, “I have been working in this industry for 25 years now and close to 15 years in the TV industry. I have never taken comedy seriously because we are joking around all the time and it comes naturally to us because we are from Punjab and we love joking around. And I didn’t know it was something you could get paid for.”
In the Netflix special, ‘Kapil Sharma: I’m Not Done Yet’, the comedian-host will talk about his journey in his own fun and relatable way while cracking jokes in his signature style.
Meanwhile, the makers of the show also released a hook video from Kapil’s special. In the video, Kapil Sharma is seen candidly speaking about the time he drunk tweeted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “I left for the Maldives instantly. I lived there for 8-9 days. The instance I reached the Maldives, I asked the hotels staff for a room with no internet. They asked, ‘Did you just get married?’ I replied, ‘No, I just tweeted’.”
Kapil continued, “My stay cost me Rs 9 lakhs. I haven’t spent this much money even on my education,” he said jokingly. “That one tweet cost me so much,” he added. Kapil further continued, “I want to sue Twitter.” He said the microblogging site should have warned his followers that it is a “drunk tweet” and that it should be ‘ignored’. While taking responsibility for some of the tweets that he put out, Kapil concluded by mentioning that the other tweets were the responsibility of…and then he took the names of some liquor brands.
