"My sole focus is to provide non-stop laughter"
Comedian and actor Kapil Sharma has revealed how he has dealt with the online hate he receives from trolls.
Kapil has come under fire from netizens lately but he has said that he does not pay much attention to trolls because he believes in making the world a better place with his jokes.
The hashtag #BoycottKapilSharmaShow trended on Twitter following a controversial segment on the show.
It featured Kiku Sharda and Krushna Abhishek making a parody of Arnab Goswami’s ‘mujhe drugs do’ gimmick on his news channel.
One netizen had also questioned Kapil for not saying anything about Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
Though he replied to the troll in his own way, he often chooses not to react to negative comments.
When the comedian was asked about how he deals with the online abuse, Kapil said:
“My sole focus is to provide non-stop laughter to all my fans and I believe in making the world a better and light place with my jokes. I don’t pay much attention to trolls.”
He went on to say that he is enjoying the current phase of his life. In 2019, he became a father and he is now associated with a children’s show.
Kapil said: “I am extremely blessed. Each day offers something new. Even before parenthood, I always wished to do something for kids.
“Hence, you could see the kid avatar on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
“But yes, I will try and do more for kids, and ‘The Honey Bunny Show With Kapil Sharma’ is a good start.”
He shared more about his new show: “This was the first time I was shooting for an animated show.
“The process was something new, but with time I was able to adapt and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. It was a unique and thrilling experience.
“When it comes to inspiration, my style has always been more on observing people and bringing it on screen, and I have done the same for this show.”
He revealed that children have always been dear to him and even said that his own mother is a source of inspiration for him.
“I would want to do something special for them.
“She (his mother) has always made people laugh even through tough times, which is difficult.”
